1. What if I don't know how to spell a name?
If you do not know how to spell a name exactly (or do not know the inmate's full name) you can still search for an inmate. The system will allow you to search on just the first name, just the last name, or any combination of the two. You can also conduct partial name seaches. For example, typing the letters "JO" in the last name field will list all inmates with the last name "JOHNSON", "JOHNSEN", "JONSON", etc. You can also find an inmate by searching by the inmate's custody status.
