Cook County Jail Inmate Search Online

Cook County inmate search engines are readily available online and provide a simple way to locate an inmate. All you need is the name of the person in question and the state they are incarcerated. The search engine will return a results list with the offender’s name, race, age, and sex.
You can also use the search engine to find inmates by their booking or case numbers. If you know the specific county where an inmate is being held, you can narrow your search to only that county’s records. Finally, some states allow you to search for inmates by their mugshots. This can be useful if you only have a physical description of the person you are looking for.

Illinois State Prison VS Cook County Jail

Most people aren’t familiar with the difference between state prison and county jails. Essentially, it boils down to the length of stay and type of offense. State prisons are reserved for those convicted of serious crimes and sentenced to serve more than a year. On the other hand, county jails are designed to hold inmates for shorter periods—usually no more than a year—and typically house those convicted of less serious offenses. There are also federal prisons, which are run by the federal government and usually house inmates who have been convicted of federal crimes.
