All inmate information, including mugshots, are handled by the Indiana Department of Corrections, as well as the County Sheriff’s offices across the state. The DOC offers an online searchable database, where you can find information on inmates if you know at least some details about them. If not, you can contact the County Sheriff’s offices by phone or in person, and request the data from there.
The online registry of sex offenders is also readily available online.
Vinelink, a system that notifies victims and witnesses of inmate status change, is also available in this state.
