New inmate locator tool released to public

The San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office on Friday announced a new inmate locator tool available to the public.

The tool will give the public the ability to get real-time information on people who are in custody, according to the sheriff’s office.

The tool will provide information such as facility location, pending charges, custody status, next court date and bail amount and will be available at www.smcsheriff.com.

For those who do not have online access, inmate information can still be obtained by calling the Maguire Correctional Facility at (650) 363-4000.
