People arrested in the City of St. Louis are usually held at one of three locations: the City Justice Center, the Medium Security Institution, or police custody. You can use the inmate locator to determined where a person is being held.

Reasons why a person may not be found via the locator:

  • the person may be held on the 1st floor in the Police Department
  • the person may be held at a substation waiting to be transported to the Justice Center
  • the person may have been released
  • the name searched does not match the name entered in the arresting paperwork.


To locate an inmate, you will need to have the person's exact first and last name. The system will only return exact matches, similar names are not returned.



Use the Begin Online button to search the Inmate Locator.
