What are Inmate Records?

South Carolina inmate records contain official data on offenders booked, detained, or incarcerated in correctional centers, state penitentiaries, and county jails across the state. Public records may include general information such as the name, registration number, and date of birth of the inmate. Inmate records may also include details of the inmate’s offense and status as well as the location of the housing correctional facility. Most inmate records are open records and therefore can be accessed by members of the public in compliance with the state’s FOIA laws.

South Carolina Prison Structure

The South Carolina Department of Corrections is tasked with the oversight of the state’s correctional facilities and prison system. It oversees over 21,000 inmates and 21 institutions. Correctional facilities in the state are divided into four security levels

  1. Level 1 A (Community-based pre-release/work centers)
  2. Level 1B (Minimum security)
  3. Level 2 (Medium Security)
  4. Level 3 (High Security)

Members of the public can contact the department headquarters at:

P. O. Box 21787
4444 Broad River Road
Columbia, SC 29210
(803) 896-8500
corrections.info@doc.sc.gov

How Do I Visit an Inmate?

To be added to the list, members of the public will need to send a completed application form to the Division of Visitation and Inmate Drug Testing located at:

Division of Visitation and I/M DT
P. O. Box 212969
Columbia, South Carolina, 29221-2969

A maximum of 15 approved visitors is allowed per inmate. Applications submitted on behalf of a minor must include a signed consent from a parent or legal guardian. Friends and family members are advised to familiarize themselves with the general rules and guidelines before their visit. The total number of visits permitted each week for offenders varies depending on the inmate’s custody and security level. However, because inmates are only allowed to have one visit each day, multiple visitors must be together during a visit.

Facilities also have the right to restrict the number of visitors for safety reasons or because of the size of the room. Visitors are not permitted to wear any clothing that exposes an undue amount of flesh, such as the midsection, thighs, chest or back.

Can Anyone Visit an Inmate?

Visiting privileges are only permitted for individuals named on the approved list. Visits may be denied to former inmates or any former employee of the South Carolina Department of Corrections. In addition, individuals who provide false information during their application may be denied visiting privileges.

How to Find Information in South Carolina County Jails

Most of the counties in South Carolina provide public access to inmate information via the city police or county sheriff website. Greenville County provides an online inmate search platform that members of the public can use to search for incarcerated offenders, while Richland County provides an identical tool for its detention center. The Charleston County Sheriff’s Office allows residents to search through recent arrests while Horry County publishes daily bookings and releases in addition to its online inmate locator.

How to Find Records from South Carolina Prison

The South Carolina Department of Corrections maintains an online search platform that provides public information on offenders incarcerated in correctional facilities managed by the state. Members of the public can search for inmate information using a known SCDC number or the inmate’s State Identification (SID). In cases where neither the SID nor SCDC number is available, searches can be done using a first and last name. Search results provide general information such as the inmate’s name, sex, and physical description. Results may also provide details of the inmate’s status, including the name of the housing facility.
