More about corrections in California

County jails in the state of California are plentiful. Not every one has an inmate search or detainee roster, but most do and even those that don't may be contacted by phone for inmate information with good cause. Public records information and access to who's in custody in particular is governed by standards set for jail operation in Title 15 of the California Penal Code. For more information read Corrections Standards Authority. The current directory of California state prisons includes a link to the official inmate locator.
