The Rhode Island Department of Corrections is the agency responsible for keeping an updated database on all inmates serving time in Rhode Island state prisons.
The public database is located on the Rhode Island Department of Corrections official website. The database is consisted of inmates currently sitting in state prisons. The database is updated daily. You can search the database by their inmate identification number, first and last name, gender, race, and other identifying information.
Unlike the state of Rhode Island, Rhode Island county and city jails keep their databases separate. You will need to contact the proper authorities, if you are looking for an inmate residing in any county or city jail.
When an offender is housed in 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 Rhode Island Department of Corrections offender search database can be found on the official Rhode Island 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 Rhode Island 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.
