Inmate Search

On this page, you will find two ways to search the inmate’s list. You can search the roster by the date they were arrested, or you can search for an inmate by their last name.

The "Ross County Jail Currently Confined Inmates" list is operated by the Ross County Sheriff's Office for the benefit of the citizens of Ross County.

The intended use is to provide citizens with the opportunity to identify current jail inmates, and determine their bail amount and associated booking information.

While every effort is made to ensure that the posted information is accurate, it may contain factual or other errors. Inmate information changes quickly and the posted data may not reflect the current information. The inmate data is scheduled to be automatically updated four times per day.

This information does not reflect the criminal history or criminal status of any inmate currently or previously in custody.
