What is an inmate search?
An inmate search is a simple and easy way to retrieve inmate records on those currently booked into or incarcerated in prisons and jails. The records include personal and administrative information of the inmates. The official records contain identifying information such as name, age, sex, inmate number, and mugshot.
In addition to identifying information, the records will also keep information on:
- Arrival, stay and release
- Inmate’s offense
- Security risk
- Possible transfers
Most of these inmate records/information can be found on a public database. Inmate records are considered public and made available by government agencies and third-party websites. Be aware third-party websites will try to charge for this public information. If the site is asking for payment, use a different database. The only inmate information that is not public is health records. In Tarrant County TX you can access inmate information on the Tarrant County web site.
How to do a successful inmate search
For a successful inmate search, you will need to know the proper database utilized—for example, those arrested by Tarrant County Sheriff’s and taken to the Tarrant County Jail.
To do a successful inmate search, you will want to open up supported browsers, internet explorer, or other search engines: Google Chrome Mozilla Firefox. When trying to do a search, the database may ask for you to answer a CAPTCHA that proves you are a human and gives you temporary access to the web property. If you are on a personal connection, like at home, you can run an anti-virus scan on your device to make sure it is not infected with malware. If you are at an office or shared network, you can ask the network administrator to run a scan across the network looking for misconfigured or infected devices. Another way to prevent getting this page in the future is to use Privacy Pass.
After you have secured to the database that you are human, search up the county or state database with a minimal amount of information. First, you will need the location of the sought-after record, including state, city, and possible county. Next, you will need the name of the person you are searching for. A juvenile inmate search gets a little more complex to access information.
If you still cannot find the individual of concern in the local database, use the website called VINELink. VINE stands for Victim Notification system and covers almost every state. On this website you can set up notifications for an inmate’s updated status.
The Importance of Posting Bail
The first thought of most who have recently been arrested is, “When am I getting out?” When they receive temporary access to a phone, the first call is to someone who can post bail. Depending on the degree of the crime, generally, an individual can be released on their own recognizance. However, many people are forced to pay bail to get released. The Eighth Amendment states that no person can have an excessive bail amount set against them, but bail can still be unaffordable.
To make bail when one does not have the means, an individual can contact a bail bondsman sucj as David Gallagher Bail Bonds. The purchase of a bond is 10% of the bond value, for example, if bail is set to $10,000, you can expect to pay $1,000 to receive a bail bond. Receiving a bond from a third party can require collateral and contracts ensuring that you will show up to court at a required time. If you fail to appear, the bondsman can cash in the collateral.
