While the Salinas Valley State Prison in Soledad, California, does not publish a full inmate roster, it is possible to locate prisoners using the Inmate Locator tool on the official California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation website. To access information about prisoners in any California state prison, including Salinas Valley State Prison, read and click “agree” to accept the disclaimer, then use the search tool to find the inmate.
The Inmate Locator tool allows you to search for an inmate by inmate number or by the inmate’s last name. To narrow the search results when looking up an inmate by name, it is possible to enter the first name and middle name in the corresponding fields of the search tool. It is also acceptable to enter a partial name.
It takes up to a few days for recently admitted or transferred inmates to appear in the Inmate Locator tool. If you are unable to find an inmate, contact the Department’s Identification Unit directly. Further information about Salinas Valley State Prison, such as visiting hours, driving directions and institution details, is available through the official CDCR website. Other information provided alongside the Inmate Locator tool includes details on calls from inmates, inmate contact information and instructions on how to send packages, money and messages.
