Inmate Proof of Incarceration

Proof of Incarceration

There is no fee to obtain a proof of incarceration.

Proofs of Incarceration are generated by the Jail Administration Office, at the Clayton County Jail.  A valid government issued identification is required. If the request is coming from out of the state a written request for a proof of incarceration can be mailed. Information required for the proof of incarcerations include the inmate’s name, date of birth, and the time period of incarceration.

If a court, social security office, bonding company, attorney, or other law enforcement agency is requesting a proof of incarceration they will need to fax a typed request on company letterhead, stating the individuals name, date of birth, and time of incarceration needed for the proof of incarceration. The proof of incarceration will be faxed back within 24 – 48 hours.
