Interested individuals can obtain mugshots of inmates stored in Florida DC's database by providing information on the various fields of the Offender Information Search tool, including the offender's full name, DC number, height, weight and age ranges, eye and hair color, race and sex. Users can then submit their request to obtain a listing of possible search matches.

To ensure that only inmates with photographs are included in the search results, place a tick on the "Show only offenders that have photos" option. It should be noted that the database is regularly updated and may not contain an inmate's real-time status and other related information.
