    I need to do an inmate search for someone at Rikers Island West Facility. Can I do that from this site if I only know their real last name?

    Juan - you can just click on the inmate search link here for Rikers Island West Facility and all you need to do is type in the last name of the inmate and everyone with that last name will show up. It will tell you the year of their birth, book and case number, and discharge date too.

    I was wondering how often the records for immates are updated at Rikers when we search here? It's my understanding my cousin has been assigned there, but I can't find him when I search. This happened last week on Thursday.

    If I wanted to visit a friend at Rikers Island West, is the check-in procedure long? I know it takes hours at some facilities. Grrrr
