If you or a loved one has been arrested, here is the information you need about arrests and pending cases in Charleston and Berkeley County:
Inmate records are managed by the South Carolina Department of Corrections (SCDC) and by the County Detention Center or Sheriff’s Office in each county. The South Carolina Department of Corrections provides an online “Inmate Search” tool for people currently incarcerated in a state prison. The inmate must presently be in a state facility; fugitives are not included in the search. This search provides only the full name, age, sex, race, height, weight and SCDC ID of the inmate. Any member of the general public can access this information.
In the state of South Carolina, you can perform a statewide inmate jail search at the following website:

County jail information must be obtained from the County Detention Center or Sheriff’s Office of each individual county. These searches provide the same information offered at the state level along with a booking mugshot, the nature of the charges, bail amount, arresting agency and the projected release date where applicable.
Each jurisdiction also has its own database where you can find information about pending cases. Search these public indexes for information on warrants, charges, the attorney and assigned prosecutor to the case.
