The Colorado Department of Corrections keeps all files on inmates in the Colorado state prisons. While the department of corrections tries to keep their records as accurate as possible, there may be times when you will find skewed information.
If incorrect information is found, please contact the department of corrections at 719-226-4569. You can search for inmates by their CDOC number, first and last name, and gender.
If they have two last names, you will want to run them together and omit the hyphen. Unlike the Colorado Department of corrections, the city and county jails keep their own records separately. You will have to contact them on how to search for an inmate in one of those jails.
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 Colorado prison inmate lookup database can be found on the official Colorado Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation website.
You can search the inmate list database by using the following pieces of information:
The CDOC number will take precedence during all searches. The CDOC is a six-digit number. All incoming inmates will be assigned their CDOC by the Colorado Department of Corrections. This will be the easiest and quickest way to locate an inmate.
If you decide to enter their CDOC number in the field provided, you will NOT need to enter their first and last name. However, the CDOC 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 CDOC number or there is no search results for the CDOC 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.
You will see the following pieces of information:
You can click on the inmate’s name to bring up their own personal file. When you do this, you will see the following information:
As we stated above, the only prisons you will be able to find in the Colorado inmate search are state operated facilities. All city and county jails are NOT in this database whatsoever.
In the state of Colorado there is 46 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.
The Colorado 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 during the week you are looking them up in.
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 and 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 Colorado. You will then want to select that you are searching for an offender or a defendant.
You will need to click the notification section of the inmate’s profile to get notified through text, calls, or email. When they make any changes to their VINE account, you’ll get notified in real-time.
You may notice that there is not a way to search for sex offenders in the Colorado Department of Corrections offender search. That’s because the sex offender search is in a whole different database. Unlike the Colorado prison inmate lookup 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 Colorado Department of Corrections at 719-226-4569.
