If you are trying to find someone in 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 the 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.
The Kentucky 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 Kentucky Department of Corrections updates its 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.
