Q: I NEED HELP ON PROVIDING IMPORTANT INFO ON AN INMATE CURRENTLY IN JAIL, ARE THERE ANY SOURCES OR RECOMMENDATIONS
A: What kind of information are you trying to provide? The answer to that question will lead you to the people you should speak with. For example:
If you have information that might help the person with their court case, then you should try to contact their lawyer. When you look up jail information on the person, usually their lawyer is listed right there on the jail information page.
If you are trying to get information to the authorities which might help them prosecute this person, you'd want to contact the police or sheriff's department that is investigating the case or was the arresting agency.
If you have health information or are keeping medications the person needs, you should contact the jail's nurse who you can probably get just by calling the main phone number for the jail.
If you would re-submit your question and indicate what kind of information you're trying to convey, we could lead you to whomever it is you might consider talking to. Good luck.
