Hartford County Inmate Search

Law enforcement agencies in Hartford county generally follow an incarceration process and pattern in the following manner

  • Arrest: In Connecticut, an arrest typically entails the following steps:
    • Police are notified that a crime has been committed.
    • Police officers attend to the crime
    • The crime is subject to charges
    • A probe is launched
    • A probable reason is identified
    • A person is taken into custody or an arrest warrant is requested.
  • Arraignment: No matter how serious the offense, anybody who is detained after being arrested for it is required to appear in court the following working day. This is known as the arraignment. A person must choose whether to enter a guilty or not-guilty plea to the accusations brought against them at their arraignment. A bond will also be established by the judge.
  • Trial: An individual may have a bench trial or a jury trial if the case proceeds to trial. Both sides will have the opportunity to deliver opening arguments, evidence, call witnesses to testify, cross-examine witnesses, and closing arguments during the trial. After some deliberation, the jury will try to reach a consensus. After then, a decision regarding whether to clear or imprison the offender is taken.
  • Incarceration: The offender is then taken to a prison for a period of time depending on the severity of the crime committed. The Connecticut Penal Code states the list of crimes and their punishment. A felony is often a crime that carries a sentence of one year or longer in jail. Misdemeanors are offenses that only carry fines or brief jail sentences as punishment.

In Connecticut, the Department of Correction is responsible for both the pre-trial detention facilities and the prisons used to house sentenced convicts in all counties. There are 13 jails and prisons in Hartford county.

Inmate records are considered public in the United States and therefore are made available by both traditional governmental agencies as well as third-party websites and organizations. Third-party websites may offer an easier means to search, as these services do not face geographical limitations. However, because third-party sites are not government-sponsored, the information obtained through them may vary from official channels. To find inmate records using third-party aggregate sites, requesting parties must provide:

  • The location of the sought-after record, including state, county, and city where the inmate resides.
  • The name of the person listed in the record, unless it is a juvenile.

Where to Find a Hartford County Inmate Locator

For those seeking information about inmates in Hartford County, Connecticut, the Connecticut Department of Correction website provides a Hartford County Inmate Locator.
