Norfolk City Jail inmates can be looked up by calling the Inmate Locator Desk of the Virginia Department of Corrections. This service offers limited inmate information to the public, such as confinement locations and release dates. The Department of Corrections also offers online inmate searches.

Whether searching online or through the Locator Desk, the inmate's full name and date of birth or offender identification number are necessary for successful results.

The Norfolk City Jail is used to house inmates for only short periods of time, usually while awaiting trial. Because of the short incarceration time, inmate status changes regularly and the website may not always have the most accurate and up-to-date information.
