Texas Inmate LocatorBy Texas Magnum
Use the TDC Texas Inmate Locator to find family members or friends within the Texas Prison system. This is a really great tool that is part of the Texas Department of Corrections’ website. When your loved one or friend has first gone off for intake to TDC, it can be a very stressful time, not only for the incarcerated, but for the people left on the outside. Not knowing where your loved one or friend is, and if they are OK can be scary. Intake is usually completed and the inmate is sent to a transfer unit or an ID unit within 2 to 3 weeks from when they leave. Once they are at their destination, the Texas Inmate Locator will find them in the database.
You can learn the Texas inmate’s location as well as their estimated release date with this tool. Enter the Last Name, First Name, race and gender and hit search. It can take a minute to search the entire database of Texas Inmates, so be patient. But, after just a bit, the inmates information will come up, including the date of their projected release.
