My son is doing state time right now at Talledega Co. Jail Al. which was just set up since the tornados hit Limestone Prison. I am using his AIS 278489 number but cannot come up with any information concerning his placement or release date. Ive checked out another person there and with their AIS number it came right up .
State/Country relating to question: Alabama
every inmate search I can find
Hi and thanks for your question. Have you tried calling the jail directly, and asking for his status? You will need his full name and date of birth. The sheriff's office at the jail should be able to provide you with the information you need. I would just call the jail directly. Sometimes you may be on hold a long time, but eventually you will get through. Let me know if I have answered your questions. And good luck to you and your son.
why would his info with his AIS # XXX come up automatically like the other inmate had asked for me to check on for him and it popped right up with the release date , etc.
does this mean that the state of Alabama has my son's records screwed up?
It could be especially since there was the tornado - sometimes things get lost in the shuffle. The only people that will really be able to answer that question is the jail or prison itself... If you want to contact him or know where he is, you can call as I suggested, or write him a letter and ask him. Also, if you have the ability, you might actually just go over there. Really there is no way to know what is wrong with his number on this end; the jail may be able to tell you. I am glad he is OK and you know where he is. Good luck and I hope this helps ease your concerns.
