Most of the time the department of corrections database is up to date and accurate, however, there are times where their database has not been updated so an inmate's information might not be completely correct. 

By using the information listed below you will be able to search the database:       

  • Inmates CT DOC Number
  • First Name
  • Last Name
  • Date of Birth. 

The county and city jails have their information in different databases so you will need to use the correct site to search their databases for an inmate in any of these facilities.

How to Do an Inmate Search in Connecticut

An inmate belongs to the Department of Corrections Division when an inmate is held in a state jail. The state jail has its database open to the general public to take advantage of by the Department of Corrections Division.

You will be able to find the Connecticut DOC inmate search database on the official Connecticut Department of Corrections website where you can search for an inmate.

By using the inmate's CT DOC Number, date of birth first and last name you will be able to search the jail roster.

While searching the database the CDCR number will be the fastest way to search for an inmate, which is a six-digit number. All inmates that are held in a state jail are given their own CDCR. This is done by the Connecticut Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation. 

The inmate's first and last name will not be needed if you are going to enter the inmate's CDCR number. Keep in mind if there aren't any inmate's that come up after you enter the CDRC number, you will want to make sure you have entered the correct number since the number will need to be exact for the database to match an inmate. 

The inmate's first and last name can be entered in the database if you aren't having any luck using the inmate's CDRC number or if you don’t have the inmate’s CDCR number available.  

There will be a list of inmate's that matches the information about the inmate you entered.  

The information about these inmates is listed below:

•   Inmate's Name
•   Date of Birth
•   Facility
•   CT DOC Number

The listed information below will be shown when you select the inmate's name that you are searching: 

•    Inmate's Full Name
•    Date Of Birth
•    Detainer
•    Status
•    Date of Sentencing
•    Last Admission Date 
•    Bond Amount
•    Controlling Offense
•    Estimated Release Date
•    Maximum Release Date
•    Maximum Sentence
•    Special Parole Date
•    Current Location
•    CT DOC Number

Who’s in Jail

Prisons operated by the state are the only prisons that can be found in the Connecticut database. City and county prisons are kept in a different database.   

There are 23 state prisons located in the state of Connecticut. In the roster listed above is where you can see all of these prisons. However only state prisons are in this database, all other prisons will not be shown. 

If you are trying to find someone in a state jail, it shouldn't be that difficult since the state jails are a bit bigger and offer more information on their inmates than the smaller jails such as a city or county jails. you will be able to get information in a city or state jail's, you just might have to spend more time getting information and you will need to know where to get the information you are looking for.  

Most of the county's Sheriff's department manages and operates the county jails. You will need to get a hold of the county's Sheriff's department if you are searching for someone that is in a county jail.

There really isn't a whole lot of information on the city jails. The city jails pretty much exist to hold inmates until they will be transported to a more permanent location/jail. The citie's corrections division can be contacted if the person you are looking for is being held in a city jail. The city’s official website is where you will be able to find contact information where you can find out the information you are looking for.       


Jail Roster and Mugshots

The Connecticut Department of Corrections has updates to their offender search database done often so their information is in real time most of the time. So, keep in mind that this database information changes often, even more so if the inmate is still in the process of being sentenced. The Connecticut Department of Corrections updates their database during normal business hours.

You can always call the jail that the inmate is being held in if you would like the most recent information or if you have any questions since the jail will have the most recent information. 

The jail in which the inmate is held in will need to be contacted if you see any information on the inmate to be wrong where information can be debated with the inmate.

The inmate's mugshots are kept in the database that the general public can access. The inmates have their mugshots taken when they are being processed and booked into a state jail. The only reason an inmate will need to have their mugshots taken again is if they are being transported to a different jail.   

The VINELink can be used to get notified if an inmate’s moving within the system. This is where the state of Connecticut will need to be selected, then you will choose if you are looking for a defendant or an offender.
