The county sheriff's offices across east Tennessee manage the county jails, such as the Knox County Jail and the Putnam County Jail. Both jails operate an online information system, where the public can view incarcerated inmates currently held inside the jail or county justice center.
The information provided in the county online system often includes other personal information. In Knox County, the sheriff's office includes the inmate's address, blood type and race. The county sheriff's office only provides a booking photo or mugshot of inmates currently detained in the county jail and also releases the mugshot and personal information of the most-wanted criminals in the state. The online information system of county jails and the sheriff's office may not include information about inmates currently on parole or probation.
Most local newspapers serving east Tennessee, such as the Johnson City Press, feature a gallery of arrested individuals as well as the charges against them. The arrested individuals in the gallery are not on the most-wanted list and are not yet convicted of any crime.Learn more about Public Records
