Creating Public Jail Records

The state keeps jail records on every inmate. Each form filled out is entered into the computerized system and attached to each prisoner’s ID. Jail and prison administrators detail every aspect of prison life including work-release programs, parole eligibility dates, visitation, court appearances, participation in educational programs and everything else that affects a prisoner while incarcerated. After they are released, the parole system takes over and updates the records with parole visits and re-entry progress. Texas inmate search records are shared among all branches of law enforcement.
