What are Oklahoma Inmate Records?

The state of Oklahoma keeps inmate records, which are the entire files that follow an offender through the criminal justice system. It begins with an arrest and continues until probation or parole. These records come from local law enforcement, the courts, confinement facilities, and other government agencies.

Most Oklahoma inmate records will contain the person’s name, birth date, age, race, gender, and physical description. After that, they may also include mugshots, fingerprints, DNA, video, and audio, along with details about their crimes, court information, charges, convictions, and sentencing.

The Oklahoma Department of Corrections is the state agency in charge of inmates, facilities, and inmate records. They make it easy to locate some records, but others may be more difficult to find.
