Maintenance of Inmate Record by Sheriff
“The sheriff is required to keep a record of all persons committed to the jail of the county of which he or she is sheriff. This record shall contain the name of the person committed, such person’s age, sex, race, under what process such person was committed and from what court the process issued, the crime with which the person was charged, the date of such person’s commitment to jail, the day of such person’s discharge, under what order such person was discharged, and the court from which the order issued. This record shall be subject to examination by any person in accordance with the provisions of Article 4, of Chapter 18 of Title 50, relating to the inspection of public records.”
The Sheriff’s Department is required by law to provide certain information to the public regarding inmate admissions and releases from the Detention Center. Originally, a written docket book or log located in the facility’s lobby was the access point for this information. This docket book was replaced with a public computer terminal in the lobby and is now available online for the last 31 days via the Internet.
Inmate photographs are also available online (see link above), however, our older inmate files prior to May 1999 do not contain digital photographs. Some older photographs can still be obtained through our records section.
