Many people refer to people in jail or who are incarcerated as “convicts” or “prisoners.” Prisons are the home of people who are convicted of crimes. Generally speaking, convict or prisoner is considered politically incorrect and the preferred name for someone incarcerated is “inmate.”
Do Process Server care if there a difference between a prisoner and an inmate?
Yes, the difference between a prison and a jail is the length of time for inmates. Jail inmates are short-term hold over’s and Prison inmates are long-term residents of the institution where they are incarcerated. Jails are usually run by local law enforcement or local government agencies and exist to hold inmates awaiting trial or serving a short sentence. Prisons are usually run by state and federal agencies, private contractors who over see inmates serving longer term sentences.
Because prisons are designed for long-term incarceration, they are better developed for the living needs of their populations. Jails, on the other hand, tend to have more transient populations and less well-developed facilities. As a result, many inmates prefer their stays in prison given the more regular life, the greater availability of programs, and better facilities. Indeed, many repeat offenders will ask for prison time rather than time in jail followed by probation if given the option. Some inmates complain that jail, given its constant flow of people that can often interfere with an inmate's ability to sleep, eat on a regular schedule, or participate in exercise. Some jails also suffer from budget shortages that lead to lower quality or inadequate food. these issues often lead to claims of violations of the inmate's right against cruel and unusual punishment. However, such claims are rarely, if ever, successful.
How do we identify an inmate/defendant who is incarcerated?
A Department Identification Number is an Internal number assigned to an inmate upon reception into a correctional facility and used throughout an inmate's term of commitment no matter which facility he or she may be housed in.

Do Process Servers call inmates / defendants in jail or prison?
Inmates are allowed to make outgoing calls only, and under no circumstances are we allowed to call someone who is incarcerated are incoming calls allowed. The normal method of calling is by collect call (cell phones cannot receive collect calls)..

Where you or Process Server's can find the inmate / defendant?
If the person is in a county jail, you can call a county sheriff to find the address & phone number of the facility. However, if the person is in a state prison, then you can search online. Alternatively, if the person is in a federal prison, you can search online for the ‘Federal Bureau of Prison’s Inmate Locator’. Please visit our resource page for free links that will assist you. Once you find the correct facility you will want to get the address and phone number as well as the name of the person assigned to serve documents on an inmate.
Serving Process upon an Inmate
Our Process Servers deliver and service legal documents to inmates all the time. Since the whereabouts of inmate / defendant is known, serving process is not difficult. The main issue with service of process upon an inmate is the amount of time it takes to meet with the inmate. As you may know, each correctional facility has its own rules and regulations which we are subject to. If we are granted permission to serve the inmate we must be patient, understanding and compliant. Most correctional facilities allow process servers to serve inmates, but some do not. When we are not granted access or denied for unknown reasons, you will have to contact the local sheriff to assist you.
Before you hire us, you must contact the facility where the inmate is located, make sure the inmate is there and verify the facility rules and regulations for delivering and serving court documents. Click on the state where you need services and navigate to the location where the inmate is located.
