Arizona Inmate Search

What are Arizona Inmate Records?

Arizona inmate records are documents, forms, and detailed information about inmates incarcerated within the Arizona correctional system. These records may include arrest warrants, criminal charges, court documents, sentencing, mug shots, and reports from facilities where the prisoner is being held.

The Arizona Department of Corrections Rehabilitation and Reentry maintains and stores inmate records. They have a centralized database that the public can search. However, inmates incarcerated in the system are not allowed to review any other inmate’s records.


Online inmate records include the inmate’s name, mugshot, inmate ID, full name, date of birth, admittance date, gender, height, weight, eye color, hair color, race, custody class, and projected release date. The information also includes their current location and detailed information about their crimes, sentencing, and parole along with work programs they are involved in. 

Arizona Prison and Jail System

The Arizona prison and jail system are comprised of 10 state prisons, six private facilities, and 16 county jails for the temporary detention of inmates awaiting bail, bond, or a trial. The Department of Corrections also oversees parolees and probation programs for the entire state.


 The state-run prisons are owned and operated by the Arizona Department of Corrections Rehabilitation and Reentry, and all inmates incarcerated in those locations are under their responsibility. Those incarcerated in private facilities are the responsibility of the entity who owns it. The state does not oversee those inmates.


 The Department of Corrections also runs and oversees two community re-entry centers to ease inmate’s re-entry back into society. One also offers drug and alcohol education and treatment programs.


 Jails are owned and operated by the counties where they are located. Sheriff’s departments oversee inmates there and manage staff who supervise and provide for inmates there.

How to Search for Inmates in Arizona

 The Arizona Department of Corrections Rehabilitation and Reentry has a search feature on their website, which provides a lot of information about inmates. However, they offer a disclaimer saying that release dates and types may be subject to change and are not verified. They also provide instructions for victims to sign up for notifications when the prisoner will be released.


The public can also search using other tools such as VINE and Arizona public record search portal for detailed inmate records. 

How to Contact, Send Money to or Visit an Inmate in Arizona

Arizona makes it easy to visit an inmate in one of their prisons. They have a visitation application on their website, which visitors can download, fill out, and send in. The application applies for phone calls as well as visits. Visitors will be subject to a background check before visiting, and they must pay a one-time fee.

The Arizona Department of Corrections Rehabilitation and Reentry’s website also has a list of all prisons and mailing addresses so that family and friends can contact incarcerated loved ones and send money or gifts.

Family and friends can consult individual county sites or Sheriff’s department websites for information on how to visit someone in county lockup or a jail facility.
