Keeping and maintaining all inmates serving their sentence in Florida state prisons is a big responsibility. That is what the  Florida Department of Corrections does. You will be able to find the information listed below when you search their jail roster: 

•    Inmate Releases
•    Inmate Escapes  
•    Absconder/Fugitive
•    Inmate Population
•    Supervised Population

Florida Department of Correction's database can be searched by using the inmates DC number, or their first and last name. 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. 

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 Florida

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 Florida Department of Corrections offender search roster on the official Florida Department of Corrections website.
 

You can search the inmate list database by using the inmate's CT DOC Number, date of birth first and last name.

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 Florida 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 Full Name
  • Current Facility
  • DC Number
  • Date of Birth
  • Race
  • Release Date
  • Sex

The inmate's information listed below will be shown when the inmate's name is selected:

  • Date of Birth
  • Current Prison Sentence History
  • Inmate's Full Name
  • Prior Prison History
  • Race
  • Incarceration History
  • Sex
  • Detainers
  • DC Number
  • Initial Receipt Date
  • Current Facility
  • Aliases
  • Current Custody
  • Current Release Date

Who’s in Jail

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

There are 171 state prisons located in the state of Florida. 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 city'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

Florida's 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. Florida's Department of Corrections updates its database during normal business hours.

You always welcome to 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 has access to. 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 (VINE) can be used to get notified if an inmate’s moving within the system. This is where you can select the state of Florida, then you will choose if you are looking for a defendant or an offender.

Sex Offender Search

The Florida prison inmate database does not allow you to search for sex offenders. The database for sex offenders has its own database, which the general public does have access to this sex offender database.  

You will be able to find the sex offender database on the Florida Department of Law Enforcement.

You will then need the information listed below to continue your search:

  • First & Last Name
  • State Status
  • City
  • Offender Status
  • County
  • Offender Type
  • Zip Code

This database can be searched by using the name and zip code or the address information.
