One of the fastest ways to find out if a person is in jail is to check online. The Johnson County Jail system provides an Inmate Search page for this purpose.
When the page opens:
Click on “Show Currently in Custody”. (This will list all inmates that are in jail right now)
Enter the person’s last name.
Enter the person’s first name.
Click on “Search”.
TIP – You can also enter the first two or more letters of the last name and click on “Search”. All inmates whose names begin with the letters you entered will be listed. This gives you a longer list to look through, but is a good tool if you are unsure of the name spelling.
NOTE – If the inmate does not appear, it is possible he/she has been released.
Click on “Show Previous Booking History (3 years)” and click “Search”. A list of all people booked in the last three years will appear. You can scroll down the list to check for your inmate.
Select your inmate from the list and click on the last name to view:
- Mugshot (Can help verify that you are reading about the correct inmate).
- Inmate’s Name
- Criminal File Number
- Detention Center Location and Address (Where the inmate is housed).
