How to Do an Inmate Search in Florida

When an offender is housed in a state prison, they are the 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 Florida Department of Corrections offender search database can be found on the official Florida Department of Corrections website.

You can search the inmate list by using the following pieces of information:

The DC number will take precedence during all searches. The DC is a six-digit number. All incoming inmates will be assigned their DC number by the Florida Department of Corrections. This will be the easiest and quickest way to locate an inmate.

If you decide to enter their DC number in the field provided, you will NOT need to enter their first and last name. However, the DC 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 DC number or there is no search results for the DC number you plugged in, the 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. This is not a release search. All inmates are currently sitting behind bars.

You will see the following pieces of information in the Florida jails inmate search:

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:
