How to use the Inmate Search for San Diego County Bailey Det Ctr in California
The George F. Bailey Detention Center is located right near the barren deserts of San Diego. It currently has 1,888 beds, and a revolving door of inmates in for various crimes. It is also the largest detention facility in San Diego. If you have a family member or friend currently locked up in this facility, or if you want to know if they are in any detention facility in San Diego, looking them up is simple, and only requires a few very simple steps.
First, go to their website at http://www.sdsheriff.net/detentionfacilities/gbdf.html
, and go to the "Who's In Jail" link at the far right hand side of the screen. Click on that link, and you will e prompted to enter the first and last name of an inmate. Exact spelling is not required. What is required, however, are the first two letters of an inmate's last name and the first letter of an inmate's first name. For example, if you wanted to look up a woman named Donna Mae, you would have to type in "D" for the first name, and "Ma" for the last name. Or if you want, you can type in the full name. Afterwards, you should click on the Lookup button or the Reset button if you had made a mistake in typing the name, in which case you just type the name in again but correctly.
After you hit the Lookup button, you will be taken to a CAPTCHA screen. CAPTCHA screens are used on many websites to verify that a human is trying to look at the website, and not a computer or a robotic device. This is done to ensure the security of the webpage, so that an inmate's information cannot be used for commercial purposes and that a user cannot be blocked from the webpage. All you have to do on that screen is type in the 5 or 6 green characters in the white box, and then hit Continue. Given you typed in the correct letters, you will be taken to a list of matches. This gives matches for any inmate locked up in any of the San Diego detention facilities, but an inmate's profile will be sure to tell where they are exactly.
An inmate's profile will give you a person's basic vital statistics, such as nationality, date of birth, and other physical characteristics. It also shows where he/she is being held, what they were charged with, and any release or bail information you may need to know. There are also links on the profile page for inmate services, such as emailing the inmate, scheduling a visit with the inmate, and shopping the jail's commissary for goods and services to aid the inmate.
The inmate search module on the Bailey Detention Center website, as well as San Diego County jails as a whole may be a bit vague and intimidating, but it contains enough to know that if you have a loved one currently locked up, they are in the system and they are getting their day in court.
