Inmate Search in Putnam County Jail

The Putnam County Jail maintains an online roster of inmates currently booked at the facility. The list is arranged alphabetically according to the inmate’s last name. Each inmate’s record includes his full name, intake date and time, race, sex, height, weight, arrest location, bond amount, charges, and booking photo.

Important Jail Policies and Procedures:

Inmates at the Putnam County Jail are allowed to visitation with family and friends. Each inmate is responsible for filling out a visitor list. Only those on an inmate’s visitor list will be allowed to schedule a visit. Visiting hours are on Saturday and Sunday from 8am to 4pm. Visits must be scheduled during those times, a week prior to the visit.

To deposit money into an inmate’s commissary account, you can use the kiosk in the lobby of the Sheriff’s Department. You can also go online at www.vendengine.com.

Sex Offender Search and Lookup:

Federal law stipulates that all sex offenders must register their information with local law enforcement for recording in the state and national sex offender databases. A sex offender is an individual who has been convicted of a crime involving sexual conduct such as rape, sexual assault, and child pornography. You can go here to find out if any sex offenders are living near you in Putnam County. Bear in mind that there may be times you may encounter entries showing last known addresses of offenders rather than current ones. Some offenders may fail to update their registration.

Bail and Bondsman

Bail is the money or property you pledge to the court in exchange for your release from custody or jail while your trial is still pending. Part of the condition of your release is your appearance at all your court dates. Failure to appear as promised will mean that your bail will be revoked and forfeited.

A bondsman can act as a surety – the person taking responsibility for paying the bail that the defendant owes to secure the defendant’s release. If a defendant lacks money for posting bail, he can hire a bondsman for 10% of the bail amount. This fee is non-refundable.
