How to Conduct a Free Texas Inmate Search and Locate an Offender in Jail or Prison in Texas

You can conduct a free Texas inmate search online at Inmate Lookup using either the first, middle or last name of an offender and the race, age, or gender of the offender. Alternatively, you can find a Texas inmate if you have the Bureau of Prisons (BOP) Register Number, District of Columbia Department of Corrections (DCDC) Number, Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Number or Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) Number.

The Federal Bureau of Prisons inmate population includes people awaiting trial for violating federal law and individuals who have already been convicted of committing a federal crime. The Federal Bureau of Prisons also confines individuals who have been convicted of a felony in the District of Columbia (DC) under a law passed in 1997.

Pursuant to the First Step Act, sentences are continually being reviewed and recalculated to respond to pending Federal Time Credit changes. As a result, an inmate’s release date that appears on a government or third-party Website may not be up-to-date.

Texas inmate information (such as location/offenses/projected release date) can be found online, by e-mail, or telephone by contacting the Texas Department of Criminal Justice or visiting Inmate Lookup.  Some of the information available when searching is:

  • TDCJ number
  • Inmate location
  • Offense of Conviction
  • Incarceration history: offense, county and court of conviction of offenses for which the inmate was previously incarcerated
  • Current incarceration: offense, county and court of conviction
  • Projected Release Date

When searching online it is helpful to have the first and last name of an offender and the race, or gender of the offender. It is also useful to have the TDCJ Number and SID Number.
