Inmate Locator

Below are links to the prison inmate information system for federal, state and local inmates in the Central District of California.

  • Federal Bureau of Prisons Inmate Locator – Locate the whereabouts of a federal inmate incarcerated from 1982 to the present. Search by name or BOP registration number.
  • U.S. Immigration & Customs Enforcement (ICE) detainee locator – Locate the whereabouts of anyone detained by ICE in detention centers. To look up the detainee, you will need the full legal name the person used upon their arrest and the country the person claimed they originated from. It helps to also have the “A-number”, which is the number that ICE assigned to them upon their detention, which you can use instead of attempting to type the detainee’s name.
