Use of the Jail Lookup feature on the Dallas County website requires identifying about the inmate. You can search by prisoner information, bookin number or case number. You must enter the prisoner's first and last names, race, and sex to search by prisoner information. You can also include the prisoner's birth date to narrow the search.

After entering the information, the website displays a list and pictures of all inmates that meet the search criteria. The list also shows each inmate's race, sex, date of birth, bookin date and bookin number.

Users can see more information about the inmate by clicking on the inmate's name. Additional available information includes the inmate's attorney's name, jail location, pending charges and bond amounts. The website also shows whether the inmate is being held for another agency or if the charges are from Dallas County. Users can see warrant numbers for each charge, which magistrate is assigned to hear the case, the case number and whether the bond has been forfeited.
