Arkansas Inmate Records

Arkansas inmate records are documents that describe an inmate’s personal information such as the names, birth dates, gender, and aliases, as well as criminal histories, sentencing details, and release dates. Per the Arkansas Freedom of Information Act, inmate records are available to interest parties.

Inmate records are considered public in the United States and therefore are made available by both traditional governmental agencies as well as third-party websites and organizations. Third-party websites may offer an easier search, as these services do not face geographical limitations. However, because third-party sites are not government-sponsored, the information obtained through them may vary from official channels. To find inmate records using third-party aggregate sites, requesting parties must provide:

  • The location of the sought-after record, including state, county, and city where the inmate resides.
  • The name of the person listed in the record, unless it is a juvenile.

The Arkansas State Corrections System comprises all jails, detention centers, prisons, penitentiaries, and penal institutions managed by local and state agencies.

How Do I Visit Inmates in Arkansas Prisons and Jails?

The ADC visitation page details Arkansas state correctional facilities’ visitation guidelines, procedures, and requirements. Suffice to say that inmates are entitled to visits from persons named on their approved visitation list. Getting on an inmate’s visitation list involves completing a visitation application and submitting it to the admin office at 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 is allowed per visit. Still, all the children of the inmate along with two adults may be allowed unless the facility warden objects to space-related concerns. All visitors to Arkansas visitors must have a valid, government-issued photo ID.

How Do I Contact Inmate in Arkansas Prisons and Jails?

Arkansas inmates may talk to persons outside the facility via phone call and regular mail. Per state laws, respondents to inmate letters must write the letters with black ink on no more than two sheets of 8½ x 11 inches of copy paper. Senders may include only cards the size of the paper, and senders must mail all readable material such as books, magazines, and newspapers directly from a traceable outlet. However, respondents may not include care packages or edible foods. 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
  4. City, State, and Zip Code

How to Perform an Arkansas Prison Inmate Search

All information regarding persons incarcerated and housed in Arkansas state prisons and correctional institutions is typically managed and disseminated by individual facilities and made available by an inmate search. However, the Division of Correction is the central custodian for inmate records in Arkansas. To this effect, the state agency maintains a prison lookup tool for inspecting and obtaining information regarding current inmates. Using this free inmate search by name is possible, but using the inmate’s unique ID makes the search for inmate records faster.

How to Perform an Arkansas Jail Inmate Search

The Sheriff’s Office is the administrative head of county jails in Arkansas. These local law enforcement agencies typically have inmate rosters that are publicly available to interested persons. Still, the inmate lookup tool featured on the ADOC website allows interested persons to retrieve information regarding the housing facilities of inmates by conducting an online search. To find a person in jail 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. Interested persons may also use the tool to obtain details of an inmate’s incarceration and mugshots. In addition, the offense description tool provides descriptive details of the crime(s) the inmate was charged.

The Difference between Arkansas State Prisons and County Jail

The Arkansas state prison and county jail system is one of the largest in the United States, with over 23,000 inmates incarcerated in more than 100 facilities. Most of these inmates are housed in state prisons, with the remainder in county jails.

The Arkansas Department of Correction (ADC) oversees the state prison system, while each county sheriff's office is responsible for operating its county jail. ADC operates 21 state prisons, which are located across the state. The majority of inmates in ADC custody are male (approximately 85%), and most are between 18 and 35.

Approximately 60% of all inmates in ADC custody are serving sentences for non-violent offenses, such as drug crimes or property crimes. The remaining 40% are incarcerated for violent crimes, such as murder, rape, or robbery. The average length of stay in an ADC prison is approximately 2.5 years, though some inmates are serving sentences of 20 years or more. The average cost of housing an inmate in an ADC prison is $50 per day.

In addition to the state prison system, there are also 101 county jails in Arkansas. These jails are operated by the sheriff's office in each county, and they typically house inmates who are awaiting trial or sentencing or who have been sentenced to terms of one year or less. The average daily population of a county jail in Arkansas is approximately 300 inmates. The average cost of housing an inmate in a county jail is $35 per day.

How Do I Find Out an Inmate Release Date?

Inmate’s release dates are typically available to the public on the inmate records. However, the correctional facility may restrict access to an inmate’s release date if the information puts the inmate at a safety risk. Still, persons with legitimate, tangible interests may contact the correctional facility admin directly for the release date.

How Do I Find Out Where Someone is Incarcerated in Arkansas?

The prison lookup tool will show information on current inmates, including the present facility. Concerned persons may also visit the Sheriff’s website in the county where the arrest or court trial happened, especially if the crime is a misdemeanor. Lastly, checking local newspaper publications or obtaining court records from the clerk’s office will provide information on an offender’s sentencing, including the facility and sentence length.
