Who's in the state or county jail?
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 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 only reason an inmate will need to have their mugshots taken again is if they are being taken to a different jail.
The VINELink can be used to get notified if an inmate’s moving within the system.
