How to perform a Kentucky Inmate Search
KDOC (Kentucky Department of Corrections)
Do you know someone that is currently being incarcerated within the KDOC facilities? if so, this section should explain how to run an inmate search and find data. Or if your not sure you should run an inmate search here as well to find inmates that are being held at one of the KDOC facilities in KY.
All that is required to start a search is a first and last name, or just a first initial and last name. Once a hit is made you will see the inmates full name, the current location being held, DOC number, and charge of a crime if available. To gain more information simply click on the inmate’s name. Keep in mind that when you do this you will see a photo of the inmate. Once open there will much more detailed information about the inmate, location, crimes committed, and possible release or parole dates.
Inmate data by search service
A search service is an online technology that allows users to search a name against federal, state, and county data sources within one search. Because of this, a search service is very quick at finding all types of public records, including inmate records. However, with these types of services, anyone can find more than just inmate records but data like arrests, warrants, court records, contact information, assets, and much more. Most of these services are unlimited in the number of searches that can be performed. This is a good choice when adding this to other types of record searching methods.
Kentucky Inmate Search by Sheriff websites
Most people may not think about using a sheriff website for searching public data. However, this method is free and can be done quite easily if you know what county the inmate is at. While this method may not produce what you’re looking for in terms of an inmate it could uncover public data on that person from the past. To get the county Sheriff website simply google the county + Sheriff website. Like so. “Casey County Sheriff website.” Just switch the county to the one you’re looking for in Google.
