Inmate Records

Georgia Inmate Search

Georgia inmate records contain information relating to a convicted person who has been remanded in a correctional facility managed by the county or Georgia Department of Corrections (GDOC). Persons who conduct a Georgia inmate search to obtain inmate records can expect to see the inmate's full biodata and sentencing information. Biodata information included in inmate records is name, age, sex, and Georgia inmates' mugshot. Also, sentencing information includes offense type, custody status, registration number, and past and current locations.

Inmate records are considered public in the United States and therefore are made available by both traditional governmental agencies as well as third-party websites and organizations. Third-party websites may offer an easier means to conduct a Georgia inmate search, as these services do not face geographical limitations. However, because third-party sites are not government-sponsored, the information obtained through them may vary from official channels. To find inmate records using third-party aggregate sites, requesting parties must provide:

  • The location of the sought-after record, including the state, county, and city where the inmate resides.
  • The name of the person listed in the record, unless it is a juvenile.

Are Georgia Inmate Records Public Information?

Yes. Inmate records are considered public in Georgia under the Georgia Open Records Act. The records are made available by both governmental agencies and third-party public record providers. Thus, individuals can request inmate records or conduct a Georgia inmate search using these sources. Note, however, that certain information about inmates is exempt from public access.

How to Find Someone in Jail in Georgia

Citizens can find anyone incarcerated in a Georgia jail using the Georgia inmate search tool provided on a county government or sheriff's website. This must be the sheriff responsible for supervising the inmate or county where an inmate is being held. Individuals can also contact a county sheriff's office to inquire about locally incarcerated individuals. Note that while the State Department of Corrections (GDC) offers an inmate locator to the public, it cannot be used to find someone in county jail. It only helps uncover the whereabouts of Georgia prison inmates.

Facilities Operated by the Georgia Department of Corrections

Georgia Department of Corrections oversees about 50,000 inmates in 35 state prisons, 7 probation detention centers, 4 private prisons, and 21 county prisons. Interested persons may obtain the physical address and contact information of these correctional facilities on the Department of Corrections prison lookup tool.

How to Send Money to an Inmate in Georgia State Prison or Jails

Georgia inmates can receive money from friends and family through their personal trust account. Only people on the inmate's approved list can send money. An inmate can have up to five people who can send money to them on the approved sender's list approved by the Georgia Department of Corrections. Generally, eligible persons who need to send money to an inmate must know the inmate's full name, the inmate's prison number, and the facility of incarceration. Armed with this information, interested parties can send money to an inmate in four ways:

  • Online: parties who want to send money to an inmate online can use either JPay or MoneyGram. MoneyGram users must have the GDC Receiver code 6857.
  • Mail: parties can send money orders through the mail by printing them online. Money orders take two weeks to process and should be mailed to:

P.O.Box 24
Pembroke Pines, FL 33024

  • Phone: parties can contact a JPay agent at (800) 574-5729
  • In-person: parties can find MoneyGram kiosks in person to send money to an inmate. To use, senders will need the inmate's GDC number and last name.

Jails were created to house offenders with shorter offenses or awaiting trial. The County Sheriff's office runs jails and is responsible for rules of sending money to inmates in jail differ from county to county. If information about an inmate is not known, requestors may query these offices for inmate information or conduct a Georgia inmate search using their online resources.

How to Visit an Inmate in Georgia State Prison

The GDC is in charge of the visitation of inmates in Georgia. First, intending visitors must fill and apply for visitors privilege, which will be considered and approved by the GDC. Filling in incorrect or false information in the application will lead the visitor's application to be rejected. Upon approval of the visitor's privilege application, the individual can make an appointment to visit the inmate. Visitors to Georgia State prison must adhere to the guidelines and rules laid down by the GDC.

On the other hand, the procedure for visiting inmates in county jails in Georgia differs from county to county. In Fulton County, for example, inmate visitation is via remote video conferencing. Chaplains and attorneys can still physically visit inmates in Fulton County jail, but all visitors must follow visitation rules.

How to Find a County Inmate Roster in Georgia

In Georgia, a county inmate roster in Georgia may be accessed on a county government or sheriff's website. These sites often feature inmate locators or databases that can be used to retrieve information about an inmate in a local correctional system (i.e., a city or county jail). Most sheriff's offices update their inmate database daily. Individuals can also visit a county sheriff's office to inquire about people in custody or conduct a Georgia inmate search.

How to Perform Georgia Prison Inmate Search

The GDC maintains prison inmate records in Georgia. Interested persons can perform a free inmate search by name on the Georgia inmate lookup tool to find a person in jail. A Georgia prison inmate search only shows inmate records for adult offenders. Juvenile records are confidential and unavailable to the general public unless the juvenile has committed a designated felony or federal crime. Besides finding offenders by name, searchers can also use inmate IDs and case numbers to conduct a Georgia prison inmate search especially on third-party websites.

How to Perform Georgia County Jail Inmate Search

County jails, unlike state prisons, are run by sheriff offices in Georgia. So, Georgia jail inmate search in these correctional facilities differs from county to county. Most sheriff offices publish a full list of current inmates, while others have an online Georgia inmate search tool. For instance, Union County has a list of its current inmates published online, while Fulton County Jail maintains an online search portal.

The Difference Between Georgia State Prisons and County Jails

Georgia has a three-tiered system of prisons and jails:

  • State prisons, which the Georgia Department of Corrections operates.
  • County jails are operated by individual counties
  • Private prisons are contracted out to private companies

However, all Georgia state prisons and county jails are under the oversight of the state department of corrections.

As of 2017, there were 34 state prisons in Georgia, housing over 50,000 inmates. Of these prisoners, approximately 50% to 60% were African American. County jails vary widely in size, with the largest jail in the state housing over 3,000 inmates. Most prisoners in Georgia are incarcerated in state prisons, but some are held in county jails or private prisons.

Most prisoners in Georgia are incarcerated for non-violent offenses, such as drug possession or probation violation. However, the state has many prisoners serving life sentences, and the death row population has been increasing in recent years.

How to Find an Inmate Release Date

Inmate release date is one of the pieces of information obtained from record custodians or by looking up inmates online. However, this information may be unavailable for privacy or security reasons, and only eligible persons may access the exact inmate release date. These eligible persons include the inmate's immediate family members, crime victims, attorneys, and authorized law enforcement officials. Like most Georgia inmate search queries, the requesters will need to provide information to facilitate the search.
