How do I locate or find a prisoner? Task

Use the Prisoner Location Service to find which prison someone is in. 

The prisoner must [have previously given] their permission for their information to be shared, unless you belong to certain organisations such as the police or a solicitors’ firm. 

You can only use this service to find someone in a prison in England or Wales. 

The email address to use is:
[email protected] 

and the postal address is: 

Prisoner Location Service
PO Box 17594
Birmingham
B2 2QP 

Include as much information as you can from this list: 

  • your name, or the organisation you represent 
  • your date of birth 
  • your address including postcode 
  • name of the person you want to find 
  • the reason you want to find them – for example you’re their solicitor, or a family member 
  • any other names they may have used 
  • their date of birth
