How To Search For Inmates In The US

Every state has its offender locator on their official website or uses a third-party app. We have curated a list of all official inmate locators. Although it might seem usual to use the official inmate locators there is a high chance that offenders might jump states or regions. That can make past crimes of a person untraceable. Thus we have created our nationwide inmate locator. Using it you can locate any inmate irrespective of their location of the crime.
