Default BOP Inmate Register Number

I am now on the inmate locater on the BOP's website. I am curious if the "register Number" has any special significane (i.e., do the numbers represent anything). Thank you.

Mark

The last three numbers stand for a city. Whichever city you committed your crime in! I think!! Or maybe it is the city you are from...?? one or the other. Someone will know for sure because I have seen a list on here before with numbers and cities they represent..

I think that the last three numbers represent the federal judicial district that you were convicted in. In my case, I was convicted in a district far from home, so the last three digits of my number were far different from those of people who were from my city.

Thanks

I showed up on the locator exactly one week post sentencing. Seeing your name on the inmate locator is an ugly reminder.

And of course long after you are released you stay in the computer. As for the numbers, yes the last 3 is what Tx listed, the 5 before is just in the order you are sentenced in that district. The exception is the "old timers" who have a different set of numbers for the last 3, they were issued according to the prison you were going to, i.e. Atlanta was 124(I think)

My son has not been sentenced but is being held in a federal detention center. He got a number day one and appeared immediately on the locator. 077 is North TX district where he was arrested, but he uses the last three numbers of 177. Wonder if that's because he's only in a detention status?

Was he sentenced in a metro area there? For instance, ppl from the city of Chicago get 424 as their last 3.

It's where you are charged, not where you are sentenced. And how long it takes to get updated is quite variable.

For example, my daughter was arrested in WY. Before being charged, she skipped and went to MN where she was rearrested and arraigned (but waived extratdition) and remanded to custody. She was listed on the BOP locater two days later with a number nnnnn-041 (Minnesota). She was transported a week later to Cheyenne, but until after her trial the BOP locator showed only "NOT IN BOP CUSTODY". A day after her trial, she was transferred to Washington Cty jail in Akron, CO, for six weeks. From there she was sent to Oklahoma City for about a week (we don't know how long) then to FMC Carswell. About a week or two after that the BOP locator showed her correct location, and they finally updated the Projected Release Date about six weeks later.

Last 3 digits are the Federal District you were in and the first ones are the order you were sentenced in.

Lets you kind of keep track

There was a co-defendant in my son's case who got probation only, but failed many drug tests. He served time in a county jail approved by the Feds. Then ended up finishing up his probation at one and the whole time he was listed under the BOP as being released.
