Ohio Inmate Records

Ohio inmate records comprise personal and official data of persons incarcerated by the state and held in locally managed or state-run jails, prisons, or penal institutions. These records are typically managed and disseminated by the correctional facility where the inmate is held or by using the online resources available on law enforcement websites. Persons who obtain inmate records can expect to see information such as the inmate's full name, physical descriptors, mugshots, charges, bail/bond conditions, and release dates. This information is available for public inspection based on the Ohio Public Records Law.

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.

Facilities Operated by the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction

The Ohio state correctional system is under the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction jurisdiction. It comprises 27 state prisons for adults, 3 juvenile facilities, and privately-run prisons. Local law enforcement departments are also in charge of county and city jails as well as detention centers.

While Ohio local and state correctional institutions are generally independently managed, the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction guidelines are often adopted by state-run institutions and county/city facilities. Nonetheless, some institutions employ unique operational strategies based on the housing facility and the nature of the inmates. Persons seeking jail-related information or access to detainees may do so by querying the facility or using the Ohio DRCs online resources.

How to Visit Inmates in Ohio Prisons

Intending visitors must use the official prison lookup tool to confirm an inmate's location. Ohio state inmates are entitled to visiting rights which will only be valid upon completion of the visitor's application form available on the visiting information page of the DRC website. The application must include up to fifteen (15) visitors who will be allowed access to the detainee following standard verification and background check processes.

Approved visitors must schedule each visit ahead and present an acceptable government-issued photo ID before entering the facility. Visitation schedules and guidelines are often unique to Ohio corrections facilities, as indicated on the various institution web pages. Thus, intending visitors must contact the applicable facility before scheduling a visit. Visitors may also schedule video visitations, which attracts a standard fee paid before each call.

How to Send Money Inmates in Ohio Prisons

All persons listed on an inmate's approved visitation list may send money to the inmates in facilities across the state. Funds are primarily sent via mail, online, or by telephone transactions detailed on the inmate funds page of the DRC website. Funds sent to an inmate must be no more than $200 per transaction and $400 per calendar month.

Senders may make mail deposits through the approved Ohio DRC vendor, JPay. The sender is required to download and complete the Money Order Deposit Form available on the JPay website. The form must be filled legibly and sent with money order payment of the desired amount to the indicated address. All orders must indicate the full name of the sender and the recipient, the housing facility address, and the unique DOC number of the inmate.

Individuals sending funds may make online payments via ConnectNetwork, while phone deposits may be made by calling (888) 988-4PMT (4768) using reference Site ID 86.

How to Perform an Ohio Prison Inmate Search

All information about inmates housed in any Ohio state correctional facility is managed by the state DRC and published on the department's website. Anyone can perform an Ohio prison inmate search by querying this site. The website's FAQ page lists relevant publications regarding inmate correspondence, inmate welfare, commissary, visitation, and related topics. In addition, interested persons may also perform an inmate lookup by querying the facility where the inmate is serving time. Finally, the public can sometimes conduct a free inmate search by name on various third-party inmate records websites.

How to Perform an Ohio Jail Inmate Search

Interested persons that need to know how to find out if someone is in jail may use the Offender Search Tool available on the DRC website. To use the tool to find a person in jail, the user must furnish the engine with the required parameters, i.e., the inmate's name and unique DOC number.

In addition to performing an inmate search in Ohio, the search tool can be handy for viewing the compliance status of offenders, as well as details of an inmate's criminal history, sentence information, and other related data.

The Difference between Ohio State Prisons and County Jail

Ohio's state prison and county jail system is one of the largest in the country, with a total capacity of over 50,000 inmates. The majority of these inmates are housed in state prisons, with the rest being held in county jails.

The Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction (ODRC) is responsible for overseeing the state prison system, which consists of 28 facilities across the state. The ODRC also manages a number of community-based programs and services that aim to reduce recidivism and help offenders reintegrate into society.

The county jail system is made up of over 100 facilities, which are managed by the individual counties. Inmates in county jails are typically those awaiting trial or sentencing, or those serving shorter sentences of one year or less.

How Do I Find Out an Ohio Inmate Release Date?

Individuals that wish to find out an Ohio inmate's scheduled release date may do so by querying the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction inmate lookup page. This page provides current inmates' details, including their tentative release dates. Note that sealed release dates are only available to the inmate's immediate family members, crime victims, attorneys, and authorized law enforcement officers.

How to Contact Inmates in Ohio Prisons

Prisoners of Ohio are provided mail and phone privileges in their respective housing facilities as provided by Ohio state laws. Persons who wish to be contacted by inmates must first be on the inmate's approved call list. All persons indicated on the list will be contacted by the phone service vendor of the facility for permission to include their number on the inmate's call allow list.

Generally, inmate phone calls are paid for via standard collect calls or prepaid calls. However, family and friends may provide inmates with call credits by purchasing some in person at all DRC prison kiosks at any facility or by crediting the offender's commissary.

Intending correspondents that wish to contact an inmate via mail need to view the inmate mail page of the DRC website. As a general rule, inmate mail may include enclosures that meet the required specifications. All items otherwise will be considered contraband and confiscated or returned to the sender. Unless of legal nature and IRS related, prison staff will inspect and copy all mail before delivering it to the recipient.
