Federal Inmate public records give us particulars and also the status of all those currently incarcerated. Typically inmate records are readily available post 1982 but reports can vary from state to state. Many inmate records prior to 1982 are held within national archives but are being transferred in order to be made available electronically. Those charged with state crimes and who are unable to post bail are kept within a county jail facility. Those charged in respect of federal offenses can also be housed in county jail facilities while their case is pending. County jails are contracted by the federal government for this. Individuals can remain in a county gaol if convicted of state crimes or for more serious felonies can be moved to a state prison. Those convicted of a federal crime will be committed to a federal penitentiary or prison.
The results and information are from a vast database and you have unlimited searches available. Inmate records are very important for every state; hence the database is maintained by efficient law enforcement entities and/or any other suitable, appropriate or responsible person contracted or otherwise. Laws and sentencing will vary from state to state. For Federal inmate public records, court records and arrest records please use the above search fields. Only a first and last name (surname) are required along with the last known state or birth state and/or simply select ALL STATES. The search function will trawl local, state and/or federal correction agencies.
Please note that while most states will release a prisoner’s date of birth some states have now restricted this due to identity theft. The Arizona Department of Corrections for instance currently withhold an inmate’s date of birth. Inmates are allowed to receive their report once a year however pursuant to R.S. Section 31-221 (E) an inmate does not have access to any other inmate’s records save his own. If an inmate is found to be in possession of another inmate’s record that has been sent to him the report shall be considered as contraband. Those responsible will be liable under A.R.S section 13-2505 to prosecution. Promoting prison contraband is classed as a Class 5 felony and carries a possible two and a half years sentence in the Department of Corrections. Federal inmate public records are also maintained for what may well be viewed as a safety net for victims and their families and to promote public safety.
