About Pennsylvania Department of Corrections

The Pennsylvania Department of Corrections is responsible for keeping an updated database on all inmates serving out their sentences in Pennsylvania state prisons. 

The public database is located on the official Pennsylvania Department of Corrections website. The public database only contains inmates that are currently under the Pennsylvania Department of Corrections supervision, whether they are in prison, on parole, or on probation. The public database is updated daily. You can search by their inmate number, first and last name, gender, date of birth, age, and other identifying information.

 Unlike the state of Pennsylvania, Pennsylvania city and county jails keep their records separate. If you are looking for information on an inmate serving out time in a city or county jail, you will need to get in touch with the correct agency.

How to Do an Inmate Search in Pennsylvania

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 Pennsylvania Department of Corrections offender search database can be found on the official Pennsylvania Department of Corrections website.

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

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

If you decide to enter their DOC number in the field provided, you will NOT need to enter their first and last name. However, the DOC 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 DOC number or there are no search results for the DOC 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 Pennsylvania 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:
