How to find out if someone was in jail or prison?

We’ve designed JailExchange so you can find adults that are or have been incarcerated in all 9,000+ jails and prisons in America.

On all JailExchange facility pages, when available, we have records on incarcerated inmates. Many jails and prisons also provide information on inmates that have been released.
