About Jail Exchange

Jail Exchange strives to be the most comprehensive source of information about Detention Facilities and Prisons in the world. Our sole purpose is to cut to the facts.

We pack each of the 8,000+ Facility pages with every available bit of relevant information about each lockup. We try to create a platform for the debate surrounding the world of corrections from many perspectives both inside and outside the walls, including those who work in this industry.

We have a page for every facility in the United States; City, County, State, Federal Bureau of Prisons, Immigration (ICE), Bureau of Indian Affairs, Military, and even High Value Detainee Camps in the ‘War on Terror’ in Iraq, Afghanistan and Guantanamo Bay.

Jail Exchange is a website of action, updated daily. We encourage you to become part of this effort. Comment on any of our Facility Pages with information that you think will be helpful.

The Lawyers and Bail Bond companies you find on the local City and County Facility Pages are specialists in representing YOUR interests when you or those who are important to you end up on the wrong side of the law.

The following is just some of what you will find on each page:

The name(s) of the facility, the physical and mailing addresses, phone numbers, fax numbers, email addresses and the number of beds.

We provide a Directory of Links to all relevant information available about that facility such as:
