Located in Boston, Massachusetts, this is a temporary holding facility and processing center. It is designed for subjects who have been arrested and are awaiting an initial court appearance by a judge. Typically, prisoners are held in the Boston Jail for less than 24 hours. Nearly 18,500 prisoners are processed at the Boston Jail every year. Since it is a temporary holding facility, it does not have much of the same amenities as other jails and prisons. You cannot send inmates mail, or visit them, since they are not on-site for very long.
The best way for the general public to find out if an inmate has been booked at the Boston Jail is to call the Suffolk County Jail Information line at 617-343-4200. You will need to provide the full legal name and date of birth of the prisoner, as well as when you think the person was originally booked on charges.
