What are Nevada Jail Records?
Nevada jail records are the files that law enforcement keeps on every inmate incarcerated in a Nevada jail or prison. The paperwork trail begins with the arrest and the RAP sheet. It continues with every move to a new facility, visitor log that is filled in, court appearance and participation in any prison programs. Everything that happens in the life of a Nevada inmate is documented and stored in an online database so other law enforcement agencies can search and find someone. A lot of this information is publicly accessible and available to anyone.
How to Search for Inmates in Nevada
Nevada offers the public an inmate search tool so you can find someone incarcerated in the state. All you need is their offender ID or first and last names. You will see a list of inmates, and you can click on each one to get the details. Once in there, you will see a thumbnail image of their mug shot, their name, gender, race, age, physical description and where they are being held. You can also review details of previous hearings and their offenses with sentencing and dates.
Creating Public Jail Records
Nevada takes great pride in keeping detailed records of each inmate. The process begins with the arrest and continues well after release during supervision and parole. Each time something occurs that affects the inmate, it is noted in the file and updated. Paper versions of many of the forms exist, but most of it is kept in an online software program, accessible by all agencies in law enforcement. The information is stored in a consolidated location and shared to make overseeing many inmates easier and more controllable. Nevada’s jail records are updated daily.
