How to Do an Inmate Search in Kansas

Department of Corrections Division

  • 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 Kansas Department of Corrections inmate search database on the official Kansas Department of Corrections website.

You can search the inmate list by using the following pieces of information:

  • Last Name
  • KDOC Number
  • Last Name
  • Middle Name

SCDS number

While searching the database the KDOC number will be the fastest way to search for an inmate, which is a 7-digit number. All inmates that are held in a state jail are given their own KDOC number. This is done by the Kansas Department of Corrections.

The inmate's first and last name will not be needed if you are going to enter the inmates KDOC number. Keep in mind if there aren't any inmate's that come up after you enter the KDOC 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 KDOC number or if you don’t have the inmate’s KDOC number available.  

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

The information about these inmates is listed below:

  • Offender's Full Name
  • Date of Birth
  • KDOC Number
  • Supervision
  • Name Type
  • Source
  • Gender
  • Age
  • Race

  • Full Name
  • Gender
  • Date of Birth
  • Convictions
  • Eye Color

There are 19 state prisons located in the state of Kansas. 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.  

County and city jails

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.
