How to use the Inmate Search for Houston City Southeast Jail in Texas

Locating and Posting Bail for Houston City Southeast Jail Prisoners

[Article_Ad_2]When someone gets arrested it can be difficult to locate which jail they are in if you are not familiar with the system. We try to be very understanding and helpful during these difficult times. Our purpose here is to help you through figuring out how to do what needs done.

First we know you need to make sure which jail facility your loved one is incarcerated in. It's easiest to start from the home page here. (Just click on the link). Once you get on the home page look for the words Inmate Search in the upper left of the page.

Underneath the heading there are several links to help you search in different ways. You can search by list, by general search, through county mobile inmates, for recent releases, recent arrests, arrest warrants, and for offenders via VINELINK.

When trying to locate someone you are most likely interested in one of these links:

  • Harris County Jail Inmate List
  • Harris County Jail Inmate Search
  • County Inmates – mobile
  • Recent Releases – Harris County

When you click on any of these you will go to a new page where you will enter information about the inmate you are looking for. You can enter a last name, first name, inmate number, social security number, or date of birth.

If you fill in all of these fields you will easily narrow your list down to your inmate. However, enter as much information as you can and it will help narrow your list to get you going.

If you are looking for someone who has been arrested within the last 24 hours, you can click on the recent arrests link.

This will take you to a list of all the people who have been arrested in Harris County (this includes Houston City Southeast Jail) in the last 24 hours.
The two remaining links:

  • Arrest Warrants – Harris County
  • VINELINK – Inmate Search

Take you to an information page for victim assistance (VINELINK) and a page where you can fill out information to learn about arrest warrants that have been issued.

Once you locate the prisoner you may need to Post Bond

There are several types of bond postings for prisoners in Houston City Southeast Jail.

  • Cash bond
  • Surety bond
  • Personal bond

A judge is the one who decides which kind of bond an inmate must put up as a security that they will return for their next meeting in court. The bond types are as different as the amounts. The judge bases the type and amount on things like:

  • Crime committed
  • Criminal history
  • Citizenship
  • History of missing court appearance

If a cash bond is required it can be paid to the Jail bonding window at:

  • Herbert W. Gee Municipal Courthouse

1400 Lubbock Street (1st floor, Jail Bonding Window)
Houston, TX 77002

Usually cash bonds can be paid by cash, money order, or cashier's check if made out correctly. You can find out if this is allowed and how to make out a money order or cashier's check when you call the Houston Help Line at 713-837-0311 to find out how much and what type of bond you will need to pay. You can post bond at the courthouse bonding window 24 hours a day 7 days a week including holidays.

If a surety bond is required, you will need to contact a bonding service. There is a list of them available, but the city and jail are not associated with them, so you have to contact them on your own. Usually how they work is that they will charge a fee to post bond for your prisoner based on a security that they hold.

If the inmate has relatively minor charges, a good civic reputation, and has never failed to appear before, the judge can decide to allow a personal bond. This means they are released without need for security (cash or surety) because the judge believes they will appear in court when they are told to. This is a bond based on personal recognizance.

Communicating with an Inmate Housed at the Houston City Southeast Jail in Texas

Contacting a Prisoner at Houston City Southeast Jail?

When someone is incarcerated, contact with family and friends can be very important. This may not always be easy, but it is important to maintain as much contact as possible.
Jails must have strict and specific rules to protect the inmates, the staff, and any visitors that may come to the facility. Even though sometimes we all may not understand why rules are necessary, it is critically important to remember to always stick to the rules and never veer from them. If someone breaks the rules, there is always the risk that some type of privileges will be revoked. Don't let this happen to you.

How can you maintain contact with your loved one in Houston City Southeast Jail?

There are actually a couple of ways to do this. You can visit them of course. You will find visitation details separate from this page. We just wanted to mention here that this is a good option for helping you stay in contact with your inmate. Face to face interactions are sometimes more important when a loved one is enduring a difficult time so don't forget how important visitation can be.

Just in case you are wondering, there is no form of email communication. Prisoners do not have access to computers for these types of purpose.

If you have a reason to need to mail anything to a prisoner in the Houston City Southeast Jail, you should first call the jail to see if it is allowed. There are many specific rules and regulations related to mail going into jails. So be sure you are aware of these for your situation.

We can tell you specifically that most jail facilities only allow the inmate's address and return address to be on the outside of the envelope. Do not write, draw, spray perfume, or smear lipstick, etc. on an envelope. If your inmate is allowed to receive mail, they are likely not allowed to receive packages though. Again, make sure you reach out to the jail directly for questions.

Besides visitation, the telephone is a great way to be in contact with a prisoner in Houston City Southeast Jail. Prisoners have access to the telephone, but they can only call out. When a call in placed to a landline it will come across as a collect call. This charge will be from the telephone service provider.

If you would like for the inmate to call you on a cell phone, you will first have to contact Global Tel Link. This company is also known as GTL. You can reach them at www.GTL.net or 866-230-7761.

These folks will help you establish a pre-paid account. What will happen is the inmate can make calls to a cell or any other allowed number as long as there is money on the GTL account. This makes it a lot easier for you and usually less expensive too.

Remember when talking to an inmate that all calls can be monitored and / or recorded if it is deemed necessary.
