Finding a prisoner

July 26, 2020

Use the Prisoner Location Service to find people in prison when you do not know which prison they are in.

The prisoner must give their permission for their information to be shared, unless you belong to certain organisations such as the police or a solicitors’ firm.

You can only use this service to find someone in an English or Welsh prison.
