Alabama Jail & Prison Inmate Records Search
You probably don’t need us to tell you why it is important to be aware of whether or not your friends, family, or even coworkers are in jail, or even if they have been arrested before. Even more importantly, you shouldn’t need us to tell you why it is critical to be aware of the people that are working with your children – like their school teacher or their babysitter – has ever been in jail. You don’t need us to tell you that these aren’t the types of people that you want around your family.
The best place to look, at least initially, for jail and prison records is directly with the Lee County Sheriff’s Office. Their website, located at http://www.leecountysheriff.org/, has a variety of important links that can help you to determine if someone is safe. This office maintains a web page devoted to cataloging sex offenders within Lee County, and you can view this page at http://www.leecountysheriff.org/sexual_offenders/index.html. Although not as heinous a listing, this office also has a list of dead beat dads and moms – those scumbags that don’t pay for anything for their kids. This list can be found at http://www.leecountysheriff.org/top_10_child_support_writs/index.html. There is even a Most Wanted webpage for Lee County, Alabama, so you can be sure you’re not employing a criminal: http://leecountycrimestoppers.webs.com/wanted.htm.
If you are searching for more abstract information concerning jail and prison records, then try the research database of the Alabama Criminal Justice Information Center. This group provides data for crime throughout the state of Alabama, and a good overview – and starting point – can be found here: http://acjic.state.al.us/crime.cfm#cia 2009.
