Unable to Locate an Inmate in Kentucky

Having a friend or family member in jail can be overwhelming. The desire to write to or speak to this person can cause you to wonder where to even begin. This is where we can help. First, you need certain information to be able to get addresses and send appropriate items. This starts with the state and facility in which the inmate is housed. This information can usually be found through a name search on a given facility site or this may be information you already know.

The next step is knowing of finding the DOC Information that is pertinent to your family member or friend. DOC Information includes things like an inmate number, how to send items, and what type of items can be sent to a given facility. This information is important, as some items, like cash or hardcover books are not allowed in some facilities, but are appropriate for others. If you know and follow the rules, your friend or loved one will receive their letters, money on the books, or special items much faster.

The most important thing to include, other than allowable items, is the DOC number for the inmate. When an inmate is booked into a facility, each is given specific DOC information that includes a mugshot, a list of charges, and a DOC number, which is often called an inmate number or ID number. This number is needed for all items sent to and from the jail. This serves as a type of tracking and identification system. This number is sometimes available when searching an inmate’s name on a specific facility site.
