Arkansas State Records

Arkansas Inmate Records

Arkansas inmate records are a compilation of detention-related information pertaining to prisoners of the state of Arkansas. The data contained in these records include personal information such as the names, birth dates, gender and aliases of these inmates and official data, including criminal histories and current charges, booking information, DOC number, sentencing details, court and/or prospective release dates.

Arkansas Correctional System

The Arkansas state corrections system comprises all jails, detention centers, prisons, penitentiaries and penal institutions managed by local and state agencies. These facilities are tasked with housing incarcerated persons within state limits, and their operations are typically designed to suit the nature of the inmates assigned to them.

While most facilities operate uniquely, the state department of corrections establishes operational guidelines for state-managed institutions. These guidelines are often adopted by local law enforcement agencies that operate county and city detention centers and jails. However, while the state department often disseminates data related to state prisons and prisoners, information regarding local facilities and their inmate records may only be obtained from the staff of these institutions.

Arkansas State Prison System

The Arkansas Department of Corrections oversees the affairs of all state prisons and correctional institutions in Arkansas. In total, the department caters to 23 facilities including offices that mostly attend to the administrative functions of the state prison system. At the state level, inmate records are managed and disbursed by the state department of corrections through the department staff and the online resources available on its website. Information unavailable through either of these channels may be obtained by querying the facility where the inmate is detained. See facility locations and contact information below:

How do I Visit Inmates In Arkansas Prisons and Jails?

The visitation guidelines, procedures, and requirements of Arkansas state correctional facilities are detailed on the ADC visitation page. Summarily, inmates are entitled to visits from persons who are named on their approved visitation list. Each visitor is required to complete a visitation application which should be submitted to the visitation clerk of the facility. Once approved, visitors may schedule their visits on any of the designated visitation days of the family.

The number of allowable visits that an inmate is entitled will depend on their criminal classification. A maximum of four visitors are allowed per visit but all the children of the inmate along with 2 adults may be allowed unless the facility warden objects for space-related concerns.

Adult visitors are required to arrive at the facility with a government-issued photo ID as well as all children above age 12. However, minors under 18 may not be allowed into the facility unless accompanied by an approved adult visitor.

Contacting Incarcerated Persons In Arkansas

Arkansas state inmates are allowed mail correspondence with persons outside the facility.

As per state laws, inmate letters must be written with black ink on no more than two sheets of 8½ x 11 inches of copy paper. Only cards the size of the paper may be included and all readable material such as books, magazines, and newspapers must be mailed directly from a traceable outlet. However, no care packages or edible foods may be included.

All mails which do not fit the above-stated descriptions will be treated as contraband and mailed back to the sender or destroyed. Correspondence should be addressed thus:

  1. Inmate’s Name and ADC Number
  2. Name of Unit
  3. P.O. Box Number or Street Address

How to Find Information on Inmates in Arkansas Jails and Prisons

All information regarding persons incarcerated and housed in Arkansas state prisons and correctional institutions are typically managed and disseminated by individual facilities. However, the Arkansas Department of Corrections pools and publishes this information on the ADC website. The site’s online resources include tools for retrieving personal and crime-related data of current inmates, as well as publications on inmate welfare, visitation schedules, inmate mail, and developmental programs. Any information unavailable on the site may be obtained by querying the facility where the inmate is housed.

How Do I Obtain Records from Arkansas State Jails?

The Inmate Search Tool featured on the ADOC website allows members of the public to retrieve information regarding the housing facilities of inmates by conducting an online search. To find an inmate using the tool, the user must furnish the engine with the required parameters, such as the first/last name of the inmate, their designated ADOC number, gender, and race. The tool may also be used to obtain details of an inmate’s incarceration and mugshots. The Offense Description Tool provides descriptive details of the crime(s) for which the inmate was charged. Queries regarding the process and other related inquiries may be made to the Technical Support Unit of the department, or the staff of the facility where the inmate is domiciled.
