CREATING A LIST OF DOUGLAS COUNTY INMATES:
When you click on the link for the Douglas County Jail Inmate Search you first have to agree to the Sheriff's disclaimer by clicking on the JAIL icon at the top of the page.
There is a trick to creating a list of all the inmates. You can see their mugshots, read their criminal charges, see their bail amounts, cell assignment, visiting dates and date of arrest.
Here is how you do it: (see graphic below)
1. Put a date in the field 'Begin Booking Date'. Backdate it at least two years from today.
2. Put today's date in 'End Booking Date'.
3. Search for: 'Current Inmates'.
4. Click 'Submit'.
The Inmate Search Engine will load 20 inmates at a time in alphabetical order.
After the first 20 load, scroll to the bottom and click 'Load More Results'.
Keep repeating. It will eventually load the entire list of between 740 and 800 inmates.
Make sure you read and follow the jail's Mail Policy if you want your mail delivered to an Inmate.
You can deposit money for an Inmate's Commissary Account at the jail's kiosks, located in the Douglas County Jail lobbies or you can send an inmate a CarePack Online.
In order to receive calls from an inmate, you first have to open a phone account here.
You can now send and receive email to inmates but you have to sign up and pay for it first.
If you want to visit with an inmate you can do it from your home or the Douglas County Jail, but you must first register online and you have to register at least 24 hours in advance of your visit.
