The Delaware Department of Corrections is the agency responsible for keeping records on all inmates serving time in Delaware state prisons. The department of corrections database currently has records on 6,500 to 7,000 inmates within our state prisons, alongside another 17,000 inmates doing probation within the state.
The Delaware Department of Correction uses VINELink inmate search Delaware to locate any offenders in the state of Delaware. VINELink is the National Victim Notification Network system. You can sign up for VINELink and get alerts 24 hours a day if the status on the inmate changes; whether they are getting transferred or released.
Unlike the Delaware Department of Corrections, city and county jails keep their databases separate from the state. If you are looking for an inmate in one of them, you will need to refer to the appropriate website.

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 Delaware Department of Corrections database can be found on the official VINELink website. You will need to select the state of Delaware. You will then want to select that you are searching for an offender or a defendant.
You can search the inmate list database by using the following pieces of information:
For an accurate search, it is best to put in the offenders full first and last name. You can do partial if you are not sure of the spelling, but keep in mind that may bring up more offenders that you will need to weed through.
When you do a successful Delaware inmate search, you will all offenders that fit your criteria. You will see the following information:
You can click on this information and it will bring up the following information:
Here you will be permitted to set up notifications. These notifications can come through mail, phone calls, and text messages. Whenever an update is made to this chart, you will be notified. The inmate will not know that you are subscribed to these alerts and will NEVER be permitted to have these details either.
Keep in mind that the VINE is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The release date displayed is typically not correct because it does not take in account of good time behavior and other deciding factors.
As we stated above, the only prisons you will be able to find in the Delaware inmate search are state-operated facilities. All city and county jails are NOT in this database whatsoever.
In the state of Delaware, there are 14 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 Delaware offender search database is updated regularly. It is typically updated during normal business hours. You will notice that the 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 the inmate’s moving throughout the system. You will need to select the state of Delaware. 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.
The VINE database is updated regularly. To get up to date information, it is highly recommended to turn on notifications. If you have issues with the database or cannot find a certain inmate or cannot get notifications, you will want to contact their help number at (877) 329-7894. They will be able to help you get any and all issues and concerns cleared.
Keep in mind that VINE is no way associated with the Delaware Department of Corrections agency. All information is strictly just supplied from the agency. They do NOT work together.
You may notice that there is not a way to search for sex offenders in the Delaware prison inmate lookup. That’s because the sex offender search is in a whole different database. Unlike the Delaware 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 Delaware Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation at 302-739-5601.
