Retrieving Records

Public information about offenders who are currently on active status is available through the West Virginia Division of Corrections’ (WVDOC) online Offender Search database. Even though the records in this database are updated regularly, the WVDOC cautions that the information may change rapidly, and accuracy is not guaranteed. Inmate records may be found by DOC number or offender name. Victims and other interested parties may register for notification of changes in custody status by calling 866-WV4-VINE or by registering online at VINElink.


The West Virginia Division of Corrections makes offender information available to interested parties free of charge as a public service. No fee is assessed for victim notification services through VINElink.

Years Available

The WVDOC’s online database includes only offenders who are in prison, on parole, or under active supervision. Offenders who have been discharged or transferred out of the department’s custody are not included.
