Searching for Offenders

June 21, 2013
On a bright day, the walkway to the entrance of an old prison stretches ahead.

If you're looking for an offender, visit the Georgia Department of Corrections (GDC). You can search records by either case number or name. The advanced search feature will also let you scan records by age, gender and physical description.

After you type in your search keywords, browse all relevant records to review inmate offenses and locate prisons.

To look specifically for sexual offenders, visit the Georgia Bureau of Investigation, and filter records by name, address and gender.

For a broader view of the justice system, you can study GDC's research and reports and review demographics of inmate populations by prison.
