The Washington State Department of Corrections is responsible for keeping and maintaining an updated database of the offenders serving their time in Washington state prisons.
The database is available to the public and can be found on the Washington State Department of Corrections official website. The database currently only holds those individuals who are currently sitting behind bars in Washington state prisons. You can search for offenders by their DOC number. The database doesn’t include those individuals who are currently under the supervision of the department of corrections.
Unlike the state of Washington, Washington city and county jails keep their records and databases separate. Looking for an inmate out of a Washington city and county jails, you will need to seek out the correct authorities.

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 Washington State Department of Corrections offender search database can be found on the official Washington State 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 Washington State 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.
