The Inmate Locator web page is an online database, updated daily. It was designed to help family members find inmates housed within CDCR prisons and includes the location of other CDCR inmates transferred/housed in California out of State Correctional Facilities (COCF) pursuant to a California placement agreement. The website also provides driving directions to facilities and includes other helpful links such as general information, visiting guidelines, and how to send money, packages and messages to inmates. The website is provided as an informational service only and does not constitute and should not be relied upon as an official record of the CDCR. It may contain errors or omissions and may not reflect the true name, age, CDCR number, current location, or admitted date of any individual. You may search by an inmate's last name or CDCR number. If the inmate's location cannot be found, contact the Department's Identification Unit at (916) 445-6713.
