What Are Missouri Inmate Records?

These records are maintained by the Missouri Department of Corrections at the state level, and the county sheriff’s offices or police departments at a local level. Interested members of the public may access inmate records under Chapter 610 of the Revised Statutes of Missouri, also known as the Missouri Sunshine Law. 

Inmate records created in the state of Missouri typically contain the following information:

  • The inmate’s full name and known aliases.

  • The inmate’s date of birth, race, and sex
  • The inmate’s physical description. This includes height, weight, hair, and eye color

Records that are considered public may be accessible from some third-party websites. These websites often make searching simpler, as they are not limited by geographic location, and search engines on these sites may help when starting a search for a specific or multiple record(s). To begin using such a search engine on a third-party or government website, interested parties usually must provide:

  • The name of the person involved in the record, unless said person is a juvenile
  • The location or assumed location of the record or person involved. This includes information such as the city, county, or state that the person resides in or was accused in

Third-party sites are independent of government sources and are not sponsored by these government agencies. Because of this, record availability on third-party sites may vary.

How To Put Money On Jail Inmates Book In Missouri?

Individuals incarcerated in a Missouri Department of Corrections facility are provided with a personal account to be used by the inmate to make certain purchases, as permitted by the facility. Family, friends, and other interested parties that wish to fund an inmate’s account may do so through any of the following methods:

  • Depositing a money order or cashier’s check made payable to the “Missouri Department of Corrections” into the inmate’s account. Parties that wish to utilize this method of funding an inmate’s account will be required to properly fill a Department of Corrections deposit slip using either blue or black ink and forward the completed slip along with the money order or cashier’s check via mail to:

Offender Finance Office
Missouri Department of Corrections
P. O. Box 1609
Jefferson City, MO 65102

Deposits slips may be obtained at any time from the inmate. Inmates may also use a kiosk located in the correctional facility to check their account balance and confirm that the transaction has been completed. It should be noted that deposits typically take at least 1—3 days before they reflect on the inmate’s account. In addition to this, interested parties should note that the mailing address is strictly for processing money transactions. Queries related to funding an inmate’s account via this method should be directed to (573) 526–6445.

Parties should use “2349” as the receive code, and the inmate’s DOC ID number and last name (with no spaces in-between them) as the account number when filling this form. After making a payment, a reference number will be generated and issued to the payer. It is advised that this number is saved for future reference. Payments are usually posted to the correctional facility by the next business day.

Parties that wish to fund a Missouri Department of Corrections inmate’s account are advised not to deposit funds into multiple accounts, as this may be construed as a way to circumvent established deposit procedures, and may result in disciplinary sanctions.
