  • Visit the Tennessee Department of Correction TDOC website. The Tennessee Dept of Correction offers useful information like a corrections facility location map (pdf). TDOC also offers a felony offender information lookup. The information available on that web site pertains to Tennessee felony offenders who are or who have been in the custody of the Tennessee Department of Correction or under the Supervision of the Tennessee Board of Probation and Parole. The information is submitted by various jurisdictions within Tennessee. Confirmation and/or elaboration should be obtained from the originating jurisdiction. Information such as an individual’s current status (e.g., inmate, probation, parole) or parole eligibility is available to citizens free of charge.
  • To search for a Tennessee inmate within the SC county jails and/or city Jail (TN County Jail Inmates, who are NOT under the supervison of the TDOC), please visit our directory of  Tennessee counties with online access to their inmate records on this website. However, at this time, not every Tennessee county or sheriff supports access to online offender records.
  • If you can’t find a Tennessee prisoner this way, it may be necessary to get in touch with the appropriate sheriff’s office or even county correctional facility to receive the information in person, by mail, or by phone. For further information and contact information you may start at the directory of Tennessee County Websites.
