Alabama Department of Corrections is the agency in that holds all of the records of inmates serving their sentence in Alabama state prisons. The department of corrections online database only has information on inmates currently sitting in a state prison. The easiest way to search for an inmate is to have their Alabama Institutional Serial, also known as AIS handy.
Unlike the state of Alabama, county and city jails keep their inmate records separate. You will need to go to their databases for further details on how to search for an inmate in a city or county jail.
When an offender is housed in a state prison, they are property of the Department of Corrections Division. As stated above every state’s Department of Corrections Division has their own jail roster or database that the general public may use.
The Alabama Department of Corrections database can be found on the official Alabama Department of Corrections website.
You can search the database by using the following pieces of information:
The Alabama Institutional Serial Number or AIS will take precedence during all searches. The AIS is a six-digit number. All incoming inmates will be assigned their AIS by the Alabama Department of Corrections. This will be the easiest and quickest way to locate an inmate.
If you decide to enter their AIS number in the field provided, you will NOT need to enter their first and last name. However, the AIS field will only show results for the EXACT number you have entered, so you will want to double check, if no results pop up.
If you don’t know the inmate’s AIS number or there is no search results for the AIS number you plugged in, your next thing you can do is search by the inmate’s first and last name.
When you finally get some search results, you will see a list of all inmates that fit the criteria you plugged in.
