Alabama Jail & Prison Inmate Records Search
Finding jail and prison records for persons located anywhere in the country can be difficult, but it doesn’t have to be. Because so few people know how to look and where, a great deal of time is wasted on what should be a quick and painless process.
A great place to begin looking for jail and prison records for Jackson County, Alabama is at the places most intimate with those records: the Jackson County Jail, and the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office. While neither of these institutions will be able to divulge a full record of offenses and jail time served of individuals, they will be able to tell you whom is currently incarcerated, and what for.
To contact the Jackson County Jail, call (256)574-1884, or visit them at 545 Parks Avenue in Scottsboro. Alternatively, you can reach the Jackson County Department of Corrections directly by dialing (256)259-3570.
To get in contact with the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office, dial (256)574-2610, or drive to their offices by visiting 102 E Laurel St # 69. Their office is also located in Scottsboro.
If you contact all three of these institutions and none of them are able to provide you with the information you are seeking, then you should utilize the Inmate Search Tool provided by the Alabama Department of Corrections. Capable of searching a full database of every person currently imprisoned in Alabama, it will find the person you are looking for if they have been recently arrested. You can use this tool at http://www.doc.state.al.us/inmsearch.asp.
If you are looking for general records on the prisoner population in Alabama, the Alabama DoC can also provide you with a host of statistics. These stat pages can be found at http://www.doc.state.al.us/reports.asp.
