On-Line Jail Inquiry/Search Option Reinstated on PCSO Web Site

The on-line jail information inquiry/search option previously available on the Polk County Sheriff's Office web site has been reinstated. Due to overwhelming responses from the public supporting the return of the on-line jail information inquiry, the Sheriff's Office has decided to reinstate the popular search option. 

Visitors to the PCSO web site http://www.polksheriff.org can once again search for jail information on-line. The jail information search option allows visitors to search for the current inmate population count, and search for past and present inmates by name.

The search will offer the inmate's name, booking number and booking date, personal descriptive information, location of incarceration, arresting agency and charges filed against inmate with bond amounts.  Booking photos temporarily are being offered on a test basis (offering photos previously had caused problems in the PCSO computer system). 

Visitors can easily reach the jail information search option from the front page of http://www.polksheriff.org by scrolling down to the left and selecting on-line inquiries under the "reference" section.
