The following inmate list, at the time of posting,  is an accurate listing of inmates currently in the custody of the Penobscot County Jail and may be housed here or boarded to other facilities. This list is updated ONCE daily between the hours of 8 am and 9 am on a Monday through Friday basis,  excluding Holidays and Storm Closings. Any inmate admitted or released from the Penobscot County Jail, after the list is posted, will not be represented on this inmate list, until the next business day, if still incarcerated. This being said, a continuously updated list is available through our automated system 207-922-3898.

The Penobscot County Jail uses Securus to service and maintain the inmate phone system.  You can contact Securus for more information on setting up an account.  Friends and family need to dial 207-922-3898 to access the AIS from the outside.
