The Federal Bureau of Prisons is responsible for the custody and care of federal inmates. It maintains a database of incarcerated inmates from 1982 to present. Inmates who were incarcerated in federal prison prior to 1982 may still be located in the database, but the full population was not present until 1982. This database simplifies locating a federal prisoner.
