Having a loved one in jail is difficult enough, but sometimes prisoners are transferred to another facility with little or no warning. Unless you know where to look, it might easily take months or even years before you’re reunited with your family member. can help you locate virtually any prisoner in any prison facility worldwide.

The website’s creator was once a prisoner himself. He launched to help families monitor the whereabouts of family members no matter where they’re incarcerated. The comprehensive site provides information on jails and prisons around the world.

The site’s database far surpasses that of the Department of Corrections and the Federal Board of Prisons. The listings include federal, state and county jails, work camps, honor camps and boot camps. The site is a one-stop resource for facilities in the U.S., Canada, Mexico, Europe, Africa, Australia, Asia and the Caribbean.

The search term “locater” is often spelled correctly, but it’s searched far more than the correct spelling of locator.

The inmate locator can also be used by crime victims to discover how long a prisoner will be incarcerated. Knowing where a prisoner is held, and for how long can offer a much-needed sense of security, especially for victims of violent crimes.

Jail listings include visiting hours, in addition to rules and regulations governing visitation at various facilities. You won’t have to worry about being turned away for not meeting facility guidelines. The locator also has a built in calculator that displays how much good time credit a prisoner has for the time served.

After experiencing the twists and turns of the penal system first hand, the site’s creator has written a book for prisoners and their families. The book, “How to Survive in Jail or Prison: How not to be a Victim,” details events and what to expect during one of the most traumatic life events for you and your family.

The publication is available for download from the JailGuide website and chronicles the entire process from the initial arrest to actually going to jail. There’s also advice on how to survive jail time and how to proceed when you’re released, paroled or on probation. It’s important to understand the legal system. Knowing what not to do is vital and can keep you from becoming a victim.

The prospect of facing jail time is one of the most frightening events that can transpire in your lifetime.
