California Inmate Search

The state of California is the most populated area of the US with massive cities such as Los Angeles, San Diego, San Fransisco and many more. This is a state that people flock to due to the great climate, abundance of things to do and many people simply have their roots planted here for generations.

Due to the large population, naturally some people may find themselves on the wrong side of the law whether it be something simple such as a no insurance ticket or something more complicated such as possession of dangerous drugs.

This state has a low tolerance for repeat offenders so they may face more time incarcerated than some other states but they do have a very intense rehabilitation program that lowers the overall jail/prison time for those with lesser charges.

Counties and Cities

The most populated counties in the state of California are: Los Angeles, San Diego, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, Santa Clara, Alameda and Sacramento.

Counties experiencing significant growth are: Riverside, San Diego and San Bernardino. Most counties in CA typically gain residents each year due to the desirable climate and abundant industry and agriculture sectors.

The most populated cities in California are: Los Angeles, San Diego, San Francisco, Bakersfield, Sacramento and Fresno. There are dozens of incorporated cities within these areas as well.

SENDING MONEY TO INMATES

Most California State, County and Federal facilities have lots of options such as Moneygram, Western Union, Jpay or direct mail as ways to put money on the accounts of inmates you know. If you’re unsure, a California inmate search may help you find out exactly where they are, how long they’ll be there, whether or not you should wait until they are transferred, and much more.

For State Prison Inmates:
The state of California has always been ahead of other states when it comes to technology. You can find every single State facility by Clicking Here. That has links to all the information you could need about specific state-operated facilities.

If you can’t find them there, try a California inmate search. It’s very common for people to be shuffled around from facility to facility without their paperwork keeping pace.

For City/County Jail Inmates
Contact the jails in California directly or do an California inmate search.

WRITING INMATES

To send normal mail to any inmates in a California correctional facility, you will need to put their inmate number at the top of the facility’s address. You should call any facilities you plan to write or visit their official website first so you know the exact protocol. It may vary depending on facility and if the inmate has been transferred, it may have changed. A quick California inmate search can usually turn up an inmate’s address.

Today, most facilities offer e-mail correspondance through Trust Fund Limited Inmate Computer System (TRULINCS), and CORRLINKS. TRULINCS and CORRLINKS are both set up through the inmate first. Once you get their invitation through e-mail, you can be added to their contacts list. This may need you to do an California inmate search if you don’t know exactly where they are.

California has a lot of counties and if you have a friend, loved one or family member incarcerated somewhere but aren’t sure where, a California inmate search is probably the easiest and fastest way to locate them. The state of CA has a lot of resources available about individual institutions which is helpful but you usually can’t find their current inmates list. Only a handful of jails offer this.
