Vermont Inmate and Arrest Records SearchIt might benefit you to run a check on whether or not someone is in jail for several reasons:
- If you switch houses and enter a new community, looking for sex offenders and other local criminals will help you protect your own and the safety of your family.
- By running a search, you’ll have access to information about whether or not someone arrested in the past is still incarcerated.
- Also, information about your relatives’ inmate records can be reviewed to see whether they have been convicted in criminal cases.
- Criminal offenses that have been tried and convicted in a state court with sentences of more than 1 or 2 years will put a person in state prison.
- If the sentence is given happens to be less than 1 or 2 years, or the person is still awaiting a court proceeding/sentencing, they will be placed in county jail.
- Federal prisons house prisoners charged with federal crimes and found guilty.
Searching for Vermont state prison inmates online
Detailed records of inmates who are serving their sentence in Vermont state prisons are available through a centralized database, the Vermont Inmate Finder, which has been developed by the Vermont Department of Corrections in collaboration with the Jail Tracker. On the Vermont Inmate Finder, you can look for an offender in a correctional facility, probation and parole facility, or housing in Vermont. Details to be entered include first and/ or the last name and streamlining the search is possible by selecting the type (released inmates, current inmates or all) if you are not sure. Fields like date of birth, gender, race can also be entered, if known to you, to narrow search results.
The Vermont Inmate Finder provides you with details about:
- Inmate’s case number and code
- Offender status (sentenced, detained, on probation or parole)
- Description of charges on the offender
- Warrant number
- Bond type and amount

It is important to use a reputable third-party platform to prevent fraud and improve the accuracy of the information collected.
