This database from the NC Department of Public Safety and the former NC Department of Correction dates back to 1972. It does not include information about county jails.

Automated System Query (ASQ) – This search tool queries the same NCDPS database as the public offender search above, but it also allows you to create customized reports based on the criteria you specify. Returns offender counts and demographic information but not specific offender identities.

NC SAVAN Search – As part of North Carolina’s commitment to supporting victims of crime, NC SAVAN (North Carolina Statewide Automated Victim Assistance and Notification) provides victims, their families, and their circles of support with free, confidential notifications about an offender’s custody status. This service is available to county jail inmates, state prisoners, probationers, parolees, and registered sex offenders. Notifications can be received by phone, email, text message, or TTY for the deaf.

NC Sex Offender Registry – This database contains information on the residences of registered sex offenders in North Carolina. The State Bureau of Investigation is in charge of this.

Interstate Compact Offender Tracking – The Interstate Commission on Adult Offender Supervision’s Offender Tracking tool provides information on probationers and parolees whose supervision has been transferred to another state.

Law Enforcement Search – For up-to-date information on North Carolina inmates, probationers, and parolees, search the NCDPS Adult Correction database by last name or ID. Create photo lineups of offenders and gain access to offender information for law enforcement investigators.
