You can search the inmate list by using the following pieces of information:
While searching the database the DOC 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 DOC number. This is done by the Washington Department of Corrections.
The inmate's first and last name can be entered in the database if you aren't having any luck using the inmate's TDCJ number or if you don’t have the inmate’s TDCJ 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:
Prisons operated by the state are the only prisons that can be found in the Washington database. City and county prisons are kept in a different database.
There are 45 state prisons located in the state of Washington. 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.
Offender search database
The Washington 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 Washington Department of Corrections updates their 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.
The Washington prison inmate database does not allow you to search for sex offenders. The database for sex offenders has its own database, that the general public has access to this sex offender database.
You will be able to find the sex offender database on the Washington Association of Sheriffs and Police Chiefs.
