Dallas County Jail and Prison Records

Locating jail and prison records, as well as incarceration status of particular individuals, can be a mixed bag just about anywhere in Alabama. Although some counties provide an online listing of all persons currently imprisoned in their respective counties, Dallas County is not one of these. However, that does not mean you won’t be able to find out who has been arrested recently in Dallas County – just that you may need to contact county institutions personally, or use a private business. In this article, we will outline which Dallas County places to contact to get ahold of jail and prison records.

The best place to begin your search is at the Dallas County Jail. Found at 800 Selfield Road in Selma, AL (36703), you can also contact the jail by telephone at (334)874-2585. On average, this prison contains about 180 inmates.

Alternatively, you can contact the Dallas County Sheriff’s Department to inquire as to whether or not someone you know has been imprisoned within the county recently. The Sheriff’s Office, in addition to having a website located at, can be contacted by phone at (334)874-2530, or visited in person at 102 Church Street, Selma AL 36701. This office can also be reached via emial at [email protected].

If neither of the above options have helped you locate the person you are looking for, then you can use the Alabama Department of Corrections Inmate Search Tool, which provides an online registry of all persons whom have been arrested recently in Alabama. This tool can be found at
