About Minnesota State

Minnesota is known as the Land of 10,000 Lakes, but its motto is actually in French: L’Étoile du Nord, which means Star of the North. During the immigration wave of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, Scandinavians chose to settle in Minnesota, and to this day their descendants remain in the state. This large infusion of immigrants from those countries gives people who live there a very distinct accent and interesting culinary traditions. It is one of the best educated states in America, and its residents enjoy one of the highest standards of living.

Minnesota DOC Inmate Search

Step 1: When you start your search, you’ll want to go to the Minnesota Department of Corrections home page. Here, your first step is to choose whether you want to search by name or by the person’s Minnesota Department of Corrections Offender ID number.

Step 2: Both types of searches are simple to do. If searching by name, you can just use the last name if you are unsure of how to spell the offender’s first name.

Step 3: This will bring you to a list of inmates that match your search. While at this stage you will not see mugshots, you will be able to check the person’s full name, date of birth, MNDOC ID number, and their current status in the state’s correctional system.

Step 4: When you click on the relevant name, you will then be given more information, including their mugshot, their sentencing and release dates, and the name of the state agent who is in charge of their post-incarceration supervision. You’ll also be able to learn about the crime they committed and the court file number.

Minnesota does not have a traditional sex offender list. Instead, they have a list of anyone convicted of a violent crime who has been released, but is still considered a threat to the community. The people on the list are called Minnesota “Registrants” or “Predatory Offenders.” Their crimes may not be sexually related.

Your search will yield a list of names. To see more about the offender, simply click on the “Go” icon, and you’ll find an astonishing amount of information about them, including a detailed accounting of how they committed their offense(s).
