Our Mission

Our mission at JailNation is to create the largest and most accurate source of information about local jails in the United States.


We are completely privately funded and have no ties with any US government agency. We have not received any grants for this website or project. We rely on criminal defense attorneys and bail bonds agents to advertise on our system so we can use the funds to further enhance our service to you, the visitor.


As a group of past New York State employees, we know the websites and internet resources on local government is simply awful. We hope to change that start by creating JailNation as the resource to come to when trying to find out up-to-date jail information. Since our launch, we have made a great accomplishments just by supplying visitors accurate phone numbers, addresses, and descriptions of jail information. We have many more quality resources for visitors in the works!


We manage our database everyday with new and fresh content for our visitors. Our goals are the same as a common visitor searching for jail information: display functional (updated) jail phone numbers and addresses, display local criminal defense attorneys and bail bonds agents to help if needed, and supply jail reviews/comments about jail systems.


Thank you for reading our mission statement. The quality of information supplied on our website is our focus, we aim to supply and exceed your expectaions.
