Arizona Inmate Search

Arizona

About Arizona Department of Corrections

Arizona Department of Corrections keeps all records on inmates in Arizona state prisons. The Department of Corrections database can be searched by the inmate’s ADC number or their last name and first initial. 

Due to many Arizona Department of Correction inmates having their identities stolen along with fraud, Arizona Department of Correction opted out all the inmate’s date of birth from the public database.

 According to A.R.S. section 31-221, inmates are only allowed to receive their AIMS report once a year, and they are not prohibited to have any other information on their prison record. 

Arizona’s city and county jails keep their own records separate from the state’s. If you need to look up an inmate in either a city or county jail, you will need to check out their website for further information.

How to Do an Inmate Search in Arizona

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 Arizona Department of Corrections database can be found on the official Arizona Department of Corrections website.

Who’s in Jail

As we stated above, the only prisons you will be able to find in the Arizona prison search are state-operated facilities. All city and county jails are NOT in this database whatsoever.

In the state of Arizona, there is 63 state prisons. These prisons are available in the above database. All other prisons that are not listed below will NOT come up in the roster. Keep this in mind when searching for an inmate.

Looking for who’s in jail in city and county jails will be more difficult than trying to find out who’s in jail in a state or a federal prison. There is typically not much information on these smaller jails. A lot of city jails do not even supply an inmate database to the general public. However, it is not impossible to locate an inmate in one of those facilities, if you know exactly who to seek out with your questions. 

As far as county jails, majority of county jails will be managed and operated by that county’s Sheriff’s department. They will be the agency, you should reach out to if you believe the person you are looking for is in a county jail. 

As far as city jails, majority of city jails do not have much information about them. They are typically just holding pens for inmates to be transferred out to their “permanent” jail. If you believe the person you are looking for is in a city jail, it is best to contact that cities corrections division. You can typically find all department information on the city’s official website.

Jail Roster and Mugshots

The Arizona Department of Corrections offender search database is updated regularly. It is typically updated during normal business hours. You will notice that inmate’s information can change quite frequently. Especially, if they have court proceedings and such.

If you have any questions or want to have the updated information, you will be required to contact the facility that the inmate is in. They will have the utmost updated information available on the inmate.

If you believe the information on an inmate is incorrect, you will want to contact the facility in which the inmate is held to dispute the information.

In the jail roster, you will also find the inmate’s mugshot. This mugshot is taken when an inmate is being booked and processed into a state prison. The mugshots typically do not change unless an inmate is getting transferred into another state prison facility.

You can also use the VINELink (VINE) to get notifications on inmate’s moving throughout the system. You will need to select the state of Arizona. You will then want to select that you are searching for an offender or a defendant.

Sex Offender Search

You may notice that there is not a way to search for sex offenders in the Arizona inmate search. That’s because the sex offender search is in a whole different database. Unlike the Arizona Department of Corrections offender search this database is not available to the general public to use. If you need to find information on a sex offender, you will need to contact the Arizona Department of Corrections at 602-542-5497.
