Full Answer

Although most states and the Federal Bureau of Prisons have inmate search features on their Department of Corrections websites, many only return information for adult inmates.

It is always best to conduct the search with a maximum of information. Knowing the inmate's first, middle and last names, gender and race can prove to be useful in locating the correct offender, and knowing the location and type of facility and the inmate's register number can also make the search a more productive one.
