Frequently Asked Questions about Performing an Inmate Search
What is the difference between jail and prison?
This is a common question. Though both types of facilities have to do with public safety, the main differences have to do with the length of confinement and who runs them. Generally speaking, jails are used to hold persons who have been arrested and are awaiting trial in court or to detain offenders who have been convicted of minor crimes. They are operated by local governments on the city or county level. You’ll find an accurate list of these kinds of facilities in Florida below.
Prisons, on the other hand, house offenders who have been convicted of more serious offenses and who have a projected release date farther in the future. They are typically run by the state or the federal government. Examples in Florida include the Charlotte Correctional Institution and the Polk Correctional Institution. Inmate Lookup walks you through the process of finding someone in a state facility at the top of this page.
How do I lookup a FL DOC ID number?
The FL DOC ID number is assigned to each inmate who is in FL DOC custody following a conviction. If you know the number, you can use it to lookup an inmate in the system. You can find the number on the FL DOC website listed above by Inmate Lookup if you have the name or SID number of the person you are looking for.
What is a SID number?
A SID number is an abbreviation for State Identification Number. Individuals who are arrested for a crime are assigned a SID number, which is used for record-keeping and identification purposes. You can find the number on the FL DOC website listed above by Inmate Lookup. You will need to have either the name or SID number of the person you are looking for.
