Unable to Locate an Inmate in New Jersey

Being unable to locate an inmate in New Jersey can be frustrating. This is true whether you have a friend of family member behind bars or you are a victim that wants to know where someone has ended up and for how long. If you are unable to locate an inmate in New Jersey, then InmatesPlus can help.

If you know the facility that the person was sent to, then all you need is a legal name or an inmate ID number to find out the basic information that is available and a mugshot. This is accomplished by going to the institutions website and doing an inmate search. All the links to prisons and jails in New Jersey are available on InmatesPlus. If you are not sure which jail or prison someone is in or have been unable to locate an inmate in New Jersey in any other way, then VINELink may be helpful. VINELink is also linked on InmatesPlus and serves as a third party site for inmate information.

There is no need to stay in the dark, find who you are looking for to start the healing or to find peace of mind knowing where your loved one will be so you can keep contact.

Having a friend or family member in jail can be overwhelming, among other emotions. 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 inmate ID 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 an 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.
