Search Tips

(Note: Click here to go to the Help menu.)

Tip 1: The search returns matches for all names that begin with the letters you type In the Last Name, First Name, and Middle Name fields on the JSO Inmate Information Search - Home page. For example, if you enter Williams in the Last Name field, the search could return inmate records for Williams and Williamson.
Tip 2: Use the full Last Name, full First Name, and full Middle Name of the inmate as search criteria only when you know the exact spelling of the name of the inmate whose record you want to view. An exact inmate name match will return search results faster, and you will typically have only one or few inmate records to select from in the search results. If you don't know the exact spelling of the inmate's name or the inmate's exact Jail Number or the inmate's exact JSO ID number, use a partial Last Name search.
Tip 3: The Jail Number is a ten-digit inmate identification number assigned for each incident of inmate incarceration by the Department of Corrections. Use the Jail Number as the inmate search criteria when you know it. An exact Jail Number match will be faster than a partial name search, because it will only return one matching record.
Tip 4: The JSO ID is a six-digit permanent inmate identification number assigned by the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office. Use the JSO as the inmate search criteria when you know it and when you want to view historical information about an inmate that has been in jail more than one time. An exact JSO ID match might be more useful than partial name search if you are looking for all information about one inmate, because it will only return all the jail records related to a specific inmate.
Tip 5: If you plan to look up information on a particular incarcerated inmate more than once, write down the Jail Number of the inmate when you first find the inmate record, and use the jail number to perform future searches for the same inmate record.
Tip 6: Print the detailed inmate information for an inmate of particular interest. This printed inmate information might be useful if you plan to visit an inmate or if you simply want have a portable document that contains information about a particular inmate and their charges. (See How To Print Inmate Information for more information.)
Tip 7: Capitalization and blank spaces within inmate search criteria do not affect the results of a search.
Tip 8: Use the navigational features on the left of all JSO Inmate Information Search pages to quickly go to related links or to learn more about the Jacksonville jail facilities and where they are located.
