How Do You View St. Louis Mug Shots?

St. Louis County keeps a record of current jail inmates, along with their mugshots, on the St. Louis County website ( The roster of inmates is updated every hour. The St. Louis County jail website also contains information about visiting inmates, mail services for inmates, bail bond services and the jail facilities.

Users can access a PDF file containing the updated jail roster via the Jail Inmate Locator button on the page. The PDF is often several dozens of pages long, so users should hold down the Control key on their keyboard while typing the F key to bring up a search box. The search box allows the user to type in a name and scroll through the names that match the search. The file contains the mugshot, arrest information, bail amount, personal information and current location of each inmate.

If the individual is being held in a different jail, the main Web page contains the contact information and a link to that particular jail. Transfers are done to alleviate overcrowding and do not reflect disciplinary action against the individual in question. The website keeps a record of publicly available mugshots that is searchable by name and by the ZIP code of the arrestee.
