Locate inmates incarcerated at the Harris County, Texas, jail by navigating to the Harris County Sheriff’s Office online Public Information Inquiry page, entering the required information and clicking on Submit, as of December 2015. You can also visit or call the jail to locate an inmate using the contact information available on the Sheriff’s Office website.
Only the inmate’s last name is necessary when completing the online inquiry, but entering the inmate’s first name, birth date, SPN (system person number) and Social Security number further narrows down the search results. The search result list is sorted by the inmate’s full name, SPN and birth date. Click on the inmate’s name for details on the inmate’s charge, case number and court. The inmate’s exact housing location is highlighted on the detail page, and clicking on it provides a map with the jail’s address, map information and photos of the outside of the jail.
The Sheriff’s Office Inmate Information page provides links to inmate visitation information, inmate trust fund and commissary details, inmate telephone call information and an explanation of the inmate bonding process. A link is also available for the Texas Department of Corrections, for inmates who have been sentenced or will be sentenced to service prison time in a state correctional institution.
