How can I find out where someone is incarcerated?

If an individual is incarcerated in Ventura County, you can check the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office’s website at http://www.vcsd.org/. Click on Inmate Information to search the Ventura County jail inmate list. To locate an inmate within the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR), please call (916) 445-6713, which is accessible 24 hours a day. You must have either the inmate’s CDCR number or the inmate’s full name and date of birth to receive information. You can also find this information on the CDCR website at: http://inmatelocator.cdcr.ca.gov/.
