Step 1: Gather the General Information of Your Loved One

You need to know all the necessary information on the person you are looking for. Information like the name, middle name, surname, and birthday will be asked, so be sure to prepare all these.

Step 2: Go to the Website

Click here to go to the official website of Williamson County Records Inquiry.

Step 3: Select Jail Records

Once you’re already on the website, you will see the words that say “Jail Records” at the bottom of the page. This will lead you directly to a page where you can search for information about inmates jailed in Williamson County Jail.

Step 4: Choose Your Search Method

At the top of the page, you will see a heading that says “search by.” On this page, you will be given two options depending on what information you have available. You can search for the defendant’s name or its booking number.

If you have the defendant’s booking number, then so much the better. Searching for the defendant’s name can give you multiple results, especially if the person you are searching for has a common name.

Moreover, you have to be accurate when putting the information of the defendant you’re looking for. One mistake, and you will have incorrect results. The more information you place, the more precise your results will be.

Step 5: Review the Results

After providing the necessary information needed by the website, it will direct you to the results page. Whether by name or the booking number of the defendant, the results will come back with the following information:

  • Booking Number
  • Defendant Name
  • Date Booked
  • Date Released
  • Arresting Agency
  • Charge(s)

Step 6: Check the Location Information

On the right upper part of the page, you will see a small heading that says, “Location.” For most of the listed records, you are more likely to find “Main Jail” as the location. If you see something else, call the Booking Desk for more information.

Step 7: Verify the Defendant’s Information

If the defendant you are looking for has a common name, you will need to verify if all the details on the result are correct. Check if the information such as the first, middle, and surname, if it matches with birth date.

Step 8: Check The Booking and the Release Dates

After you have verified the name of the person you are searching, check if the columns of booking and released dates are filled in. These columns will let you know if the person you are seeking is still in custody.

For example, if both booking and release dates are filled in, then the person you are searching for is no longer under the care of Williamson County Jail. But if the column of the booking date has filled in and the released date column is empty, the chances are high that the defendant is still in custody.

Step 9: Getting More Information

Finally, to be more certain if you have the correct person of the result, you can click on the booking number shown on the page. This will direct you to a page where you can see the information about the charge. It’s also possible to see the defendant’s mug shot photo if available to help you verify identity.

Did Not Get The Information That You Need?

As you can see, finding out if an inmate is in Williamson County Jail is not rocket science. However, if you are unsuccessful searching the defendant on the record, or if you don’t have all the personal identification of the defendant, you can call the Booking Desk at 512-943-1365. The Booking Desk is available at all times to answer your queries.
