Tips for a Hawaii Inmate Search
You can help vastly reduce the time spent locating an offender by relying on the services of an online search website like CheckPeople.com. However, if you prefer to look up the results on your own, here are a few tips to help get you started:
- Determine if you want to do a search of an inmate in Hawaii that is located in a state or federal correctional facility. There is a stark difference, and most databases only check for one or the other. CheckPeople.com references both institutions types, as well as can search county jail records.
- Obtain as much information as possible. Assuming you do not know the prison ID of the individual, gather as much personal data as possible like name, age, race, gender, and previously known address.
- State supervised correction facilities are confusing. For example, an institution that is located in Hawaii may actually be owned by a private entity or actually operated by another state. This is incredibly confusing and does not make finding an inmate any easier.
- Check to see if the database only searched for current inmates, or also ones that are out on probation or parole. In many circumstances, you are not checking to see if the offender is still in prison, but rather if he or she ever committed any crimes. Most free databases will not check for the latter, but we do at CheckPeople.com.
- Department of Correction databases are rarely completely up to date. Given the high volume, it is impossible to expect these overworked departments to stay on top of every sentence. Therefore, the information you receive from them about the status of an offender may be outdated and therefore no longer correct.
