Inmate Access to Information from ADC’s Inmate Datasearch
Pursuant to A.R.S. section 31-221(E), an inmate "shall not have access to any prisoner records other than viewing the prisoner's own automated summary record file." This means that, other than the AIMS report that inmates are allowed to receive once a year, they may not have any other information about their own or any other inmate’s prison record. This includes information regarding inmates downloaded and copied from the Arizona Department of Corrections website. If this information is sent to an inmate, it shall be treated as contraband. The sender will be liable to prosecution under A.R.S. section 13-2505 "Promoting Prison Contraband". This is a Class 5 felony subject to two and a half years in the Department of Corrections.
Database Extract Requests: In order to ensure the accuracy of all data, information, and documents provided in response to requests for records, the Arizona Department of Corrections no longer maintains or provides a database extract. If you wish to obtain specific records from ADC, please submit a Public Records Request for those specific records pursuant to Arizona Revised Statutes § 39-121, et seq.
Release dates and types have not been verified or audited by the Department and are subject to change.
