VINELink

VINELink is a third-party website used to search for inmates in Alaska. In addition, you can access VINELink by calling toll-free 1-800-247-9763.

VINELink is the online portal to VINE, America’s leading victim notification network. Accessible 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and 365 days a year, VINELink provides the most reliable information regarding custody status changes and criminal case information.

On the website, searchers can create an account or conduct an inmate lookup as a guest. The inmate’s ID number or full name must be provided to find him or her.

Once you find the inmate you are looking for, you will see his or her full name, his or her charges or convictions, and the jail where he or she is serving time.

Find an Inmate Search Engine

Another resource you can use for an Alaska inmate search is the Federal Bureau of Prison’s Find an Inmate search engine. This website contains records on inmates that are currently incarcerated or were released from 1982 to present.

You can either search by the inmate’s name or the inmate’s number (DCDC number, FBI number, INS number, or BOP register number).

Just like VINELink, you will be able to find out where the inmate is serving time and his or her charges or convictions.

InstantCheckMate

This website, InstantCheckMate, also helps you find inmates in any state.

Simply search for the jail or prison where the inmate is serving time, and search for his or her name. If the inmate is in custody in the specific jail that you searched, his or her name, mugshot, and charges will appear.

If you are looking for an inmate in Alaska, you have plenty of options to find him or her. If you cannot find the inmate on one search, try another one. You will soon find who you are looking for.

Search Facilities by Types

When searching for an inmate, you can also search for the inmate in the type of prison that he is she is in. Here are four types of jails in Alaska:

  1. City Jails

City jails are jails in a larger city where inmates serve time awaiting a court date or for shorter sentences (usually less than a year)

  1. County Jails

County jails are jails in a larger city where inmates serve time awaiting a court date or for shorter sentences (usually less than a year)

  1. State Prisons

State prisons are prisons where inmates go after they have been convicted of a crime. Inmates spend longer than a year (usually) in state prisons.

  1. Military Prisons

Military prison is a prison operated by the military.

When you are looking at a specific jail or prison, go to the inmate search page and search for the inmate, using the first and last name. You will usually see the inmate’s name, mugshot, birthdate, charges, and other information.

Search Specific Jails in Alaska

You can also search for inmates by searching the specific jails in Alaska. Each jail website has an inmate search link so you can find out who’s in jail. You can either search the jail roster, or you can search for a specific person. Go here to search specific jails in Alaska.

Once you find the jail where the inmate is serving time, search for him or her on the inmate search roster. When you find who you are looking for and click on his or name you will see his or her mugshot, charges, and the date of booking.
