There has been a number of comments on how to find an inmate in the United States. Either to learn where they are in order to send them mail or to find out their release date. The easiest way to find an inmate is to go to the State that they are in from the below list and put in their name. The majority of the Department of Corrections will tell you their exact location and how you can contact them. Some of the sites will list all of the crimes that the Inmate has been convicted of and others will just tell you where they are located.

Below is a list to find inmates in the United States. There are a few where you need an exact name or Department Of Correction number.
