Jail Records

The Yakima County Jail Roster contains inmate information that is available for public release.

Most other inmate jail records (including booking photos) are confidential and are exempt from public disclosure (RCW 70.48.100).

Inmate records may only be provided directly to the inmate, to a third-party with a signed release from the inmate, or by a court order.  To obtain (non-medical) inmate records please complete and submit an Authorization for Release of Inmate Records.

The release of medical records (even to an inmate) requires a signed Authorization for Use and Disclosure of Health Care Information form.  No medical information will be released without this completed form or a court order signed by a judge. 

If you would like to make a records request, please use our online Public Records Request Portal.
