With more than 9,000 jails and prisons across the country, trying to locate an inmate can feel like searching for a needle in a haystack. On this page, you will find the Wake County inmate search, inmate lists, inmate roster, arrest reports and/or booking information for the Wake County Detention Center in the city of Raleigh, Wake County in the state of North Carolina.
With a minimal amount of information about the inmate and some patience, on jailexchange.com you can:
If you are certain your inmate is in Wake County Detention Center, or at the very least in Wake County, go to this page to search for them.
If the Wake County Detention Center inmate search website is not currently online or up to date, call Jail: 919-856-5952 for assistance in locating your inmate.
The Wake County Detention Center is "open" 24-hours-a-day. When you call, give the staff member the name of who you are looking for and a birthdate or age if you have it. That person will let you know if your inmate is there.
At minimum you will need a first and last name. If you can provide the middle name or initial that is even better. In a perfect world you will also have the inmate's birthdate, but if not, an estimated age will help.
Most states have Department of Corrections websites that allow you to type in a felon's first and last name and pull up inmates in that state. Go to this page for inmates in North Carolina. If you need to find an inmate in another state prison system, go here.
When you click next to the inmate's name or on a link, it will show you which jail or prison the inmate is housed in. If the inmate is no longer incarcerated, but is on parole/probation or discharged, it will tell you that as well. In addition, many state prison inmate pages show recent mug shots.
The federal prison system has its own inmate locator called the Bureau of Prisons Inmate Locator.
Type in the inmate's name and it will tell you where he or she is incarcerated and their projected release date. It also lists released federal prison inmates and the date they were released.
Federal inmates who are moved from one prison to another will show as "No longer in federal custody" on the system until they reach their next federal prison destination. This movement can take a few days to several months to complete, so keep checking back to find out where the inmate was taken.
The ICE Detainee Lookup allows friends, family members and interested parties to locate illegal and/or undocumented immigrants that are in the United States without permission.
They are held in detention centers approved by Immigration Custody and Enforcement until their hearing or date they are deported back to their home country.
To look up the detainee, users need the full legal name the person used upon their arrest and the country the person claimed they originated from. It helps to also have the "A-number", which is the number that ICE assigned to them upon their detention, which you can use instead of attempting to type the detainee's name.
