How to Do an Inmate Search in Alaska

An inmate is the property of the Department of Corrections Division when an offender is held in a state prison. Every state’s Department of Corrections Division has its own jail roster/database offered to the general public to use.

The database for the Alaska Department of Corrections can be found on the official VINELink website. The state of Alaska will need to be selected. Whether you are searching for an offender or a defendant will need to be selected.

You can do an inmate search in this database by using the information listed below:

  • Case Number
  • ID Number
  • Full Name

You will need to enter the inmate's full first and last name to successfully do an inmate search. You will need to go through more inmates names if you misspell or only enter part of the inmate's name. 

You will be able to see all inmate's that fit the criteria when you are doing an inmate search. The information listed below will be shown when you successfully do an Alaska inmate search:

  • Inmate Full Name
  • Gender
  • Race
  • Age

The information below will be posted when you select this information:

  • Custody Status Date
  • Ethnicity
  • Reporting Custody
  • Custody Detail
  • Custody Status
  • ID Number

This is where you will be able to set up notifications. You can have the notifications to be sent through the mail, phone calls, and text messages. You will be notified when there is an update made to this chart. The inmate will never be allowed to have these details and they will never know that you are subscribed to these notifications.  

Who’s in Jail

State-operated facilities the only prisons you will be able to find in the Alaska Inmate database. You will not be able to find any city and county jails in this database at all. 

There are 180 prisons located in the state of Alaska. These prisons are in the database listed above. Keep in mind when you are searching for an inmate all other prisons that are not listed will not be shown in the database. 

If you are having trouble finding an inmate in the database and you know they are in one of the prisons listed above or they have just been booked in the last 24-72 hours you can call the prison directly for additional help. 

An inmate is not in one of the prisons listed above or has been released if the prison can not find them on their database. Only current inmates are shown on the database, which is unlike other jail rosters. 

Jail Roster and Mugshots

The database of the Alaska Department of Corrections offender roster search is updated frequently. This database is normally updated during the regular hours of operation. The inmate’s information can change very often. Even more so, if the inmate has court proceedings and such going on.

You can contact the prison that the inmate is held in, if you are looking for additional information or if you have any questions. The prison that the inmate is held in will have the most current information. 
To dispute any information that you believe the information on an inmate is not correct, you will want to contact the prison in which the inmate is held in.

The inmate's mugshots can be found in the jail roster as well.  When an inmate is being booked and processed into a state prison, is when the inmate's mugshots are taken. Unless an inmate is getting transferred into another state prison facility, mugshots are not updated or changed.

Parole is something that the Alaska Department of Corrections database does not have any information on. The parole is not associated with the prison and is assigned to a different agency. You can always call  907-269-4642 if you would like to get in contact with them about any parole hearings that are coming up.

The years prior Parole Board Meetings audio files can be searched through here. However, in order for you to find out when an inmate’s going before the board, the parole board the parole board will need to be contacted. The general public does not have this information available to them on the internet so you will need to contact the board with the correct information, so this information can get pulled up for you.

Sex Offender Search

In the Alaska inmate database search, you are not able to search for sex offenders. The sex offender search has its own database. This database is available to the general public as well just as in the DOC inmate locator.

This database can be searched by the information listed below:

  • Last Name
  • First Name
  • Zip Code
  • County
  • Address
  • City

This database can be searched by the offender's name or the address fields.

This offender roster search is only for offenders that are NOT held in state prison. These offenders in this database are living out on their own in the community.

You will be able to see the information listed below when doing a successful offender search:

  • Full Name
  • Complaint

You will be able to see the offender's personal identifying information listed below when you select the inmate's name:
