You can search the inmate list by using the following pieces of information:
While searching the database the MODC number will be the fastest way to search for an inmate, which is a 6-digit number. All inmates that are held in a state jail are given their own MODC number. This is done by the Main Department of Corrections.
The inmate's first and last name will not be needed if you are going to enter the inmates MODC number. Keep in mind if there aren't any inmate's that come up after you enter the MODC 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 MODC number or if you don’t have the inmate’s MODC 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:

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.
The Main 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 Main 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.
