Beginning the evening of Feb. 24, the DOC's inmate locator will have a new, more professional look and functionality.  We still are limited as to the type of information that can be provided, but we are confident you'll find this new system much improved and easier to use.

 

“The Inmate Locator is a database that contains information about each inmate currently under the jurisdiction of the Department of Corrections. The Inmate Locator is a useful tool for learning where an inmate is housed, the inmate's race, date of birth and other items.
 
Information regarding where an inmate is housed is not an indication as to whether the inmate is receiving any treatment that may be offered by the Department of Corrections at that housing location. The Inmate Locator does not contain information on inmates not currently residing in a state correctional institution.
 
The Pennsylvania Department of Corrections updates this information on a daily basis to ensure that it is complete and accurate as possible. Information such as middle name and date of birth is self-reported by the inmate, is not independently verified and may not be accurate.”
