The West Virginia Division of Corrections and Rehabilitation seeks to enhance public safety by providing a safe, secure and humane correctional system, including an effective community supervision program, opportunities to prepare offenders for successful re-entry, and sensitivity and responsiveness to victims of crime.

The West Virginia DCR website provides two inmate locator search engines – one for inmates in prisons and one for jails. For both, an inmate can be located by searching their last name (at least three letters).

Prison inmates can also be located by searching their offender ID (or at least the first four numbers). Only those who are incarcerated or on parole/probation are contained in the database.

A disclaimer is given that while the information yielded is believed to be accurate, the department does not assume liability for inaccurate information.

This site is not owned or operated by any state government agency, read more.
