All of the records of inmates serving their sentence in Alabama state prisons are held in the Alabama Department of Corrections. The only information that the department of corrections has on their online database is on current inmates being held in a state prison. Make sure you have the inmate's Alabama Institutional Serial, which is also known as AIS available when successfully doing an inmate search.
County and city jails keep their inmate records separate which is different than Alabama's database. You will be able to go to their databases for more information on how to search for an inmate in a county or city jail.
Inmates are the property of the Department of Corrections Division when they are held in a state prison. All of the state’s Department of Corrections Division has its own jail roster or database that is available to the general public.
You can find the Alabama Department of Corrections database on the official Alabama Department of Corrections website.
By using the inmate's personal identifying information listed below you will be able to search the database:
During all searches, the Alabama Institutional Serial Number or AIS will take precedence. The AIS is a six-digit number that all incoming inmates are assigned to their AIS by the Alabama Department of Corrections. Using this number is the best way to locate an inmate because it is quick and easy.
You will not need to enter the inmate's last and first name if you have the inmate's AIS number and enter it in the field provided. If there aren't any results that come up, make sure you have entered the correct AIS number. The number will need to be correct for an inmate's name to show up.
You can always search rot an inmate by entering the inmate's first and last name if you aren't getting anywhere with the AIS number you entered or if you don't have the AIS number.
You will see a list of all the inmates that match the criteria you entered.
The information listed below will be shown:

State-operated prisons are the only prisons you will be able to locate in the Alabama Inmate Database. This database does not contain any city and county jails at all.
Searching for an inmate who is in jail in city and county jails will is far more difficult than trying to search for someone that is in jail in a state or a federal prison. These smaller jails have much less information to offer. Most of the city jails do not even offer an inmate database to the general public to take advantage of, but you are still able to find an inmate in one of these prisons. You will only be able to locate an inmate if you know who to ask.
The County’s Sheriff’s DepartmentIf you think the person you are looking for is being held in a county jail, you will need to reach out to the county sheriff's department.
There really isn't a whole lot of information on most of the city jails. Inmates are normally held in city jails for a short period of time before they are transported to a 'permanent' jail. You should call the cities corrections division if you think the person you are looking for is being held in a city jail. On the cities official website, you will be able to locate all of the department's information.
Every mugshot is uploaded in the Alabama Department of Corrections Jail database. When an inmate is booked and processed into a state prison, this is normally when the inmate's pictures are taken for their mugshots.
During normal business hours, the Alabama Department of Corrections roster is frequently updated.
All information regarding the inmate is normally accurate in the Alabama Department of Corrections offender search roster. However, this information can be changed at any time so this information should be used for informative purposes only.
The Alabama Department of Corrections and the Alabama Board of Pardons and Paroles are not associated with one another. They are two separate agencies. The Alabama Department of Corrections is nor responsible to set or schedule for an inmate’s parole hearings.
You can just head on over to the Alabama Board of Pardons and Paroles if you are looking for an inmate’s pardon or parole hearing. Their scheduling database can be found here.
In the Alabama inmate roster, you will not be able to search for sex offenders. There is a separate database to search for sex offenders. This database is open to the general public just as the ADOC inmate database is.
