    Why is there no way to enter name birthdate to see if person or persons are incarcerated in your facility. Use Harris country jail as example. Then you don’t have to disrupt correction officers real duties. Just saying no offense intended. Thank you and if there is a way to check sorry I didn’t find it.please include the search sites name if there is one thank you.

    I had my brother’s actual birth date, but could not confirm he was in Nueces County jail. He knew his birth date was entered incorrectly and was told it didn’t make any difference! The difference was that we could not confirm he was there until he was allowed to contact us, could not deposit commissary funds until we got his SIDPERS number.

    I was verbally threatened with sexual assault, then physically I was sexually assaulted at the Nueces County Jail on leopard on September 4, 2008 by a female nueces county sheriffs officer/jailer named Shelly Amaya. She was subsequently fired but this facility is a place u never want to be.
