Find an Offender
Offender Locator
Information regarding offenders with the DOC is made available as a public service and in the interest of public safety. The DOC updates this information periodically to ensure that it is complete and accurate; however, this information can change quickly. Therefore, the information on this site may not reflect the true current location, status, release date or other information regarding an offender.

This database provides public record information of convicted offenders who were sentenced to incarceration, supervision, or both with the DOC. The database, however, does not provide all possible offender information on all possible offenders. For example, it does not provide information on offenders sentenced to county jail, nor does it provide information on adjudicated (juvenile) offenders or those of interest to the Wisconsin Department of Justice.

The DOC makes no guarantee as to the accuracy of completeness of the information provided. Neither the DOC nor any of its employees shall be held liable for any improper or incorrect use of the information presented here. The DOC assumes no responsibility for anyone's use or misuse of the information.

It is not the intent of the DOC that this information be used to injure, harass, or commit a criminal act against persons named in the database. Anyone who takes any criminal or tortuous action against these offenders, including, but not limited to, vandalism of property, verbal or written threats of harm, or physical assault, is subject to criminal prosecution and criminal penalties including fines, restitution, imprisonment, and is likewise subject to civil proceedings and the penalties that may be imposed by a civil court of law, including, but not limited to, liability for attorneys fees and treble damages.

The Wisconsin Statewide Victim Notification (WI-VINE) service is a free and anonymous service that provides victims and the general public with information and notification about offenders who are under the custody of a Wisconsin county jail. WI-VINE monitors the custody status of offenders in Wisconsin’s county jails and offers access to offender custody status by telephone or online.

Offender information can also be found through the Interstate Compact Offender Tracking System. The site provides information about the transfer of supervision for probationers and parolees from one state to another.
