What Are Arkansas Inmate Records?

Arkansas inmate records are official documents relating to persons who are incarcerated or have served time in local or state-run correctional facilities. These records reveal that the subjects were arrested and found guilty of an act contravening Arkansas laws. An Arkansas inmate record usually contains:

  • ADC Number
  • Name and known aliases
  • Sex
  • Mugshot
  • Biographical data such as age, gender, race/ethnicity
  • Physical descriptors such as hair color, eye color, height, weight, scars, marks, and tattoos
  • Birthdate
  • Current holding facility
  • Facility Address
  • Custody classification
  • Current Prison sentence history
  • Prior prison sentence history
  • Detainers information
  • Major guilty disciplinary violations
  • Probation information
  • Projected release date
  • Incarceration date

Records of persons incarcerated in the county and city jails are maintained by the police department and sheriff’s offices. However, the Arkansas Department of Correction (ADC) is the agency that maintains inmate records of persons incarcerated in any of the state correctional facilities. Under the Arkansas Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), the ADC, and local law enforcement agencies, are permitted to make inmate records accessible to the public. 

How To Find An Inmate In Arkansas?

The public can find Arkansas inmate records using the Inmate Population Information Search tool of the Arkansas Department of Correction (ADC). The portal allows users to access inmate records by providing information such as:

  • Inmate’s ADC number
  • Inmate’s last or first name

The portal provides other filters for users to find more accurate search results. These include gender, race, county, holding facility, offense category, and the offender’s age. Users can find the inmate in question using other information returned on the search result page to find a particular inmate. Select the name to access the required record from the prisoner profile page.

Note that inmate records accessible through the ADC portal are for persons incarcerated in state prisons and correctional facilities. To find inmate records for persons incarcerated in county jails, check the local police departments’ databases and the sheriffs’ offices. 

Arkansas has 75 counties, with 75 county jails, and many allow public access to inmate records. For example, the Saline County Sheriff’s Office, Washington County Sheriff’s Office, Benton Sheriff’s Office, and Sebastian County Sheriff’s Office allow public access to the inmate records via their homepages.

How To Find A Federal Inmate In Arkansas?

The Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP) provides an online portal for the public to locate federal inmates in Arkansas. The BOP database contains information for current federal inmates and those released after 1982. The BOP does not guarantee that users will find records for federal inmates who were in custody before 1982 through their inmate management system.

Older inmate records are maintained by the National Archives Records Administration (NARA). Persons making a federal inmate record request to NARA are required to provide the following information in their request:

  • Inmate name including middle name and initial
  • Inmate’s date of birth or approximate age at the time of incarceration
  • Inmate’s race or ethnicity
  • Approximate dates in prison

Note that the public may also use the BOP inmate locator portal to find records for persons who were once in BOP custody but never served a federal sentence. Such circumstance may occur if:

  • An individual was detained pre-trial, but criminal charges were later dismissed.
  • An individual was held as a material witness.
  • An individual was held for civil contempt.

The public may find a federal inmate on the BOP portal by providing the inmate’s number or name. The portal makes provision for several types of inmate numbers:

  • The Bureau of Prisons register (BOP) number
  • D.C. Department of Corrections (DCDC) number
  • The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) number
  • The Immigration and Naturalization Services (INS) number

To search by name, the inmate’s first and last names are required. Users may also provide the middle name, race, age, and sex of the inmate to obtain a more accurate result.

How Do I Find Inmate Records In Arkansas?

To obtain records of inmates held at the county or police jails, contact the Sheriff’s Office or Police Department charged with the administration of the jail.

Records that are considered public may be accessible from some third-party websites. These websites often make searching simpler, as they are not limited by geographic location, and search engines on these sites may help when starting a search for a specific or multiple records. To begin using such a search engine on a third-party or government website, interested parties usually must provide:

  • The name of the person involved in the record, unless said person is a juvenile
  • The location or assumed location of the record or person involved. This includes information such as the city, county, or state that the person resides in or was accused in

Third-party sites are independent of government sources and are not sponsored by these government agencies. Because of this, record availability on third-party sites may vary.
