Federal Penitentiary Inmate Locator

By Texas Magnum

Use the search tool below to find people incarcerated in the Federal Bureau of Prisons Penitentiaries.
To find an inmate that is in a federal penitentiary, visit www.bop.gov/Locate.

You will need their first and last name at least, but other information such as date of birth and race is helpful to narrow down the results. The difference between the Federal Inmate Search tool and the TDC Inmate Locator is that the results will show you not only the current inmates in Federal Penitentiaries but also the former ones. So, if someone did time in a Federal facility at any time in their life, it will show up in this search. That is not the case in the TDC tool, once someone is released from TDC they do not show in the locator tool.

There are 22 Federal Penitentiaries in Texas. Here they are:
Bastrop FCI
Beaumont FCC
Big Spring CI

Bryan FPC
Carswell FMC

      If he is in prison in Texas, in the TDC system, she can put in his last name and first name and then narrow it down by birthdate if there are a couple. Then she can look at his record of what he is incarcerated for. If this is something that happened in the past, it’s really a matter of using Google to track it down. If you know the county or city where something happened, its easier. A lot of counties keep court records and information will come up in a search. It takes some digging, but a lot of times you can find it. Good luck to you.
