How to use the Inmate Search for Dallas County Jail - West Tower in Texas
Dallas, Texas is a beautiful city, and it is currently the ninth largest city in population in the entire country (and the third most populous in Texas after Houston and San Antonio). With over a million people in its city limits, there is also crime. The city sits mostly in Dallas County, which has a total of almost 2.5 million residents, and the county has 5 adult correctional facilities currently in operation.
The West Tower
has over 1,400 beds and a revolving door of inmates awaiting trial or serving light sentences. If you know somebody, there is a way to look up an inmate currently incarcerated there. The process for looking up an inmate is very easy; all you need to do is go to this website
, and there is a link to look up in inmate on the left hand side of the screen. You can conduct your search using three different methods: by inmate information, by booking number, or by case number. The inmate information prompts a first name, last name, date of birth, race, and gender. All of these fields are required, except for the date of birth, so you must truly know the inmate of interest before you can execute a successful search.
From there, you get a look at the inmate’s profile, which shows a lot of information pertaining to the inmate. This includes their name, address, citizenship status (this is Texas after all), attorney, and where they’re being held, and also has a separate link so you can look up their criminal information (essentially, what they’re being charged with). The profile also has bond information, the booking date, and the case/warrant number.
