available: searching with the

searching with the inmate’s name.
The GDC ID is a unique number that
is given to the inmate by the

that the inmate will have more than
one case number. However, the inmate
will only have one GDC ID.
Searching with one of these numbers
will produce the quickest and most
accurate results. Simply enter one
or the other of the numbers and
click next. Additionally, you must

one of these numbers, then you may
search using the inmate’s name. It

searches will produce results that
include all variations of the names
presented, as long as they contain
the same letters.
The name search provides several
search criteria boxes. They include
the following categories: last name,
first name, middle name, alias,
gender, race, age, sentence status,
primary offense, most recent
institution, and conviction county.
Each option includes a drop down

available on the lower left.
