Are Oklahoma Inmate Records Public Information?

Yes, in accordance with the Oklahoma Open Records Act, inmate records are open to the public. However, the act does not apply to information about inmates' health, social security numbers, or banking information. These details are, therefore, typically undisclosable to the general public. An inmate’s name, arrival date, sentencing information, and custody status are among the publicly available information found on an inmate record in Oklahoma.

Oklahoma Inmate Search

Oklahoma inmate records are documents containing information about offenders held in correctional centers, state penitentiaries, and county jails across the state. Persons who obtain these documents can expect to see the inmate's biodata, identification number, and offense details, as well as the location of the housing correctional facility. This information is available for public access per the Oklahoma Open Records Act.

Inmate records are considered public in the United States and, therefore, are made available by both traditional governmental agencies as well as third-party websites and organizations. Third-party websites may offer an easier search, as these services do not face geographical limitations. However, because third-party sites are not government-sponsored, the information obtained through them may vary from official channels. To find inmate records using third-party aggregate sites, requesting parties must provide:

  • The location of the sought-after record, including state, county, and city where the inmate resides.
  • The name of the person listed in the record, unless it is a juvenile.

The state Department of Correction (ODOC) maintains inmate records in Oklahoma. The department provides databases featuring information on current inmates and former offenders on its offender info webpage. Interested parties can use this database to find someone in jail as well as a person who’s in custody at a state prison. Oklahoma inmate mugshots are also accessible through the database. This database serves as a public safety tool the general public can use to obtain up-to-date information about incarcerated individuals.

How to Find Someone in Jail in Oklahoma

Parties inquiring about how to find someone in jail can either use the ODOC offender lookup portal or search counties' inmate rosters to find an individual who’s in custody. Both the offender's lookup portal and inmate rosters provide similar information about incarcerated individuals. These include inmates’ names, booking numbers, physical descriptions, custody statuses, and the detention facility where they are held. The charges brought against a person are also available for viewing by anyone who wants to find out why someone is in jail. To find out what jail someone is in, interested parties can inspect the inmate’s record for the name of the detention facility where the inmate is incarcerated.

Inquirers can use the offender's lookup portal to find a detainee of any jail or prison across Oklahoma. A county inmate roster only covers jail detainees of a particular county.

How to Perform an Oklahoma County Jail Inmate Search

Oklahoma jails remand individuals sentenced to less than one year in a county or city jail. The sheriff's office manages county jails, while the local police department runs the city jails. These local law enforcement agencies are in charge of inmate records, and interested persons may perform a free inmate search by name by looking up the online jail roster or inmate list.

How to Send Money to an Inmate in Oklahoma Prison and Jail

The ODOC lays out the guidelines for sending money to individuals incarcerated in Oklahoma prisons. Interested persons may send money to a person in prison in five ways:

  • Online deposit using JPay
  • JPay's mobile app
  • Calling a JPay live agent
  • Sending cash through MoneyGram
  • Mailing a money order through JPay

Friends and family can send money online using a debit or credit card to an inmate using JPay's website or downloading JPay's free mobile app for Android and iPhone. Parties can also make deposits by calling JPay's toll-free number (800) 574-5729 and speaking with a live agent. Alternatively, parties interested in funding an inmate's account using cash can do so using MoneyGram. Senders should fill out the blue ExpressPayment service form and include the inmate's ID, full name, facility, sender's name, and the received code 6365. Payments are made out to the inmate's facility by the next business day. There are thousands of MoneyGram agent locations across the United States; senders can locate one closest to them using the MoneyGram locator. Lastly, interested parties can send a money order. Download and fill out the Money Order Deposit form and mail it to JPay at:

3450 Lakeside Drive, Suite 100
P.O. Box 278320
Miramar, FL 33027

Besides proving their name and contact information, senders must also include the inmate's full name and the 7-digit DOC number to ensure the inmate receives the funds. Note that there are fees associated with money transfers.

Oklahoma county and city jails have different rules on funding inmates' accounts. Visit the local law enforcement's official website in person during business hours or call the sheriff's office or police department for instructions on sending money to someone in jail. Generally, the acceptable methods of funding inmate's accounts in Oklahoma jails include:

  • Cash or money order deposited at the detention facility
  • Online transfer using a payment service provider
  • Card or cash deposit through a kiosk located in jail lobbies

How to Get Approved to Visit an Inmate in Oklahoma Prisons and Jails

The ODOC has a standard visitation policy, and visitors who go contrary to these rules face sanctions for conduct violations. For starters, it is essential to know the current location where an inmate is incarcerated before visiting. Interested persons may use the OK prison lookup tool to find a person in jail or prison and the facility locator map to get the physical location and contact information of the facility.

Next, the intending visitor must complete a visitor's request form and wait for approval. Upon approval, the individual may schedule a visit to the facility where the inmate is serving time. Generally, prison visits are scheduled by phone call or email, during which the individual informs the jail administrator of the intended date of visitation and confirms the facility's visitation status.

Only approved adult visitors are permitted to visit inmates. Visitors under 18 are also allowed to visit inmates, provided they are accompanied by an approved adult visitor, parent, or legal guardian. Meanwhile, all approved visitors must present a valid, government-issued photo ID, such as a passport, military card, or driver's license, during visits. Likewise, minors must provide documentation to prove their identity, such as a birth certificate.

How to Find a County Inmate Roster in Oklahoma

Most Oklahoma county sheriff's offices provide their county inmate roster on their website. Hence, all an individual needs to do to find a county inmate roster in Oklahoma is navigate to the county sheriff’s office's official website. On most sites, a link or button to the county inmate roster is provided on the sheriff’s office website landing page. To search a county inmate roster for a particular inmate, the inquirer would need to provide the subject name. Some county inmate rosters in Oklahoma include Payne County jail inmate search, Mayes County inmate roster, and Creek County inmate roster.

How to Perform an Oklahoma Prison Inmate Search

Oklahoma prisons are controlled by the state and are intended to hold persons sentenced to more than one year in prison. The ODOC is in charge of inmate records held in state prisons, and it has data on inmate records on its website, which is available to the public. Parties interested in locating an individual incarcerated in any state-owned prisons and facilities can access inmate records using the OK inmate search tool. This tool lets searchers do a free inmate search by name, birth date, or the identification number of an adult inmate. Juvenile inmate records in Oklahoma are confidential; the content is not available for public inspection. Meanwhile, the ODOC also has an online web setup for obtaining closed records. Interested parties can only search for records with this service using a known DOC number.

Oklahoma State Prisons and County Jails: Understanding the Difference

The number of state prisons in Oklahoma is 24, which are all operated by the Oklahoma Department of Corrections (DOC). There are also 93 county jails in Oklahoma.

The DOC is responsible for the custody and care of inmates in state prisons, as well as those on probation or parole. The DOC also manages offenders who have been sentenced to prison but are awaiting transfer to a state facility.

The average daily population in Oklahoma state prisons is 26,363. The average length of stay for prisoners is three years and four months. Inmates in Oklahoma state prisons are housed in a variety of facilities, including maximum security, medium security, minimum security, and community correctional centers.

Community correctional centers (CCCs) provide housing and programming for low-risk offenders who are nearing release. CCCs are typically located near the offender's community of residence, which facilitates employment opportunities and family visitation. Inmates in Oklahoma county jails are typically awaiting trial or serving sentences of one year or less. The average daily population in county jails is 4,443.

How to Find an Inmate Release Date

Persons who wish to know an inmate's release date may perform a free inmate search using the Oklahoma prison lookup tool. However, the exact release date may be unavailable under certain circumstances, such as when releasing the date puts the inmate in danger. In such cases, only the inmate's immediate family members, crime victims, attorneys, and authorized law enforcement officials will have access to the inmate's exact release date. Other persons will only have access to the month and year of release.
