How to Search for a Current Idaho Offender

What is the Idaho Department of Corrections Offender Search Database?

The Department of Correction manages approximately 18,000 offenders in the state of Idaho. The Idaho Department of Corrections Offender Search database provides information about offenders currently under Idaho Department of Correction jurisdiction: those incarcerated, on probation, or on parole. The database includes an offender’s location within the Idaho Department of Corrections and a listing of felonies for which an offender is serving time.

The database search engine allows you to search by name and/or offender number. Be aware that an individual may have more than one offender number. Names of individuals who have served time and satisfied their sentence will appear, their convictions will not.
