Inmate Locator

The Inmate Locator enables members of the public to learn the housing location of inmates committed to the custody of the Commissioner of corrections and currently housed at corrections facilities, Patuxent Institution and, for some short sentenced offenders, at detention facilities. The Locator, however, does not provide information on everyone in the custody of the Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services.

The Locator may not list some short sentenced inmates who, although committed to the Commissioner of corrections, are in fact housed at detention facilities. The Locator will not list any persons committed to the pretrial custody of the Commissioner of detention. In addition, inmates who are no longer in custody for any reason (such as release or escape) are not listed by the Locator.

The Department presents the information contained in the Locator without warranties, express or implied, regarding the information's accuracy, timeliness, or completeness. Please be advised that by using the Inmate Locator to find an inmate, those using it agree to release, acquit and forever discharge the State of Maryland, its successors and assigns, departments, divisions, units, officials, officers, agents, servants, representatives, and employees from any and all actions, causes of action, claims or demand for damages, costs, loss of use, loss of services, expenses, compensation, consequential damages or to any other thing whatsoever, including claims for contribution, relating to or arising from any personal injuries and/or property damage suffered as a result of the person's use of, or reliance on, the information provided by the Locator.

If you are a victim of one of the offenders found on our inmate locator please learn more about our services through the DPSCS Victim Services page.
