Jail and inmate records may be requested from the Arizona Department of Corrections online (via searchable database) or by phone. Requests for records are available for a small fee (0.50 per page). If you are a family member or a friend of an inmate, looking for information, you should contact the DOC directly by phone. If you are a victim, you can request to automatically be notified in case of an inmate status change. For non-victim notifications, you will need to file a request with the DOC, stating your reason for application.
The state of Arizona also has a sex offender registry covering the entire state.
