What is the Politically Correct Term for a Person Convicted of a Crime and is Incarcerated?

Many people refer to individuals in jail or who are incarcerated as “convicts” or “prisoners.” However, the preferred name for someone incarcerated is “inmate.”

Do Process Servers Care if There is a Difference Between a Prisoner and an Inmate?

Yes, the difference between a prison and a jail is the length of time for inmates. Jail inmates are short-term holdovers, and Prison inmates are long-term residents of the institution where they are incarcerated. Jails are usually run by local law enforcement or local government agencies and exist to hold inmates awaiting trial or serving a short sentence. Prisons are usually run by state and federal agencies, private contractors who oversee inmates serving longer-term sentences.

Because prisons are designed for long-term incarceration, they are better developed for the living needs of their populations. Jails, on the other hand, tend to have more transient populations and less well-developed facilities. As a result, many inmates prefer their stays in prison given the more regular life, the greater availability of programs, and better facilities. Indeed, many repeat offenders will ask for prison time rather than time in jail followed by probation if given the option. Some inmates complain that jail, given its constant flow of people that can often interfere with an inmate's ability to sleep, eat on a regular schedule, or participate in exercise. Some jails also suffer from budget shortages that lead to lower quality or inadequate food. These issues often lead to claims of violations of the inmate's right against cruel and unusual punishment. However, such claims are rarely, if ever, successful.

How does a Process Server Identify an Inmate/Defendant/Witness Who is Incarcerated?

A Department Identification Number is an internal number assigned to an inmate upon reception into a correctional facility and used throughout an inmate's term of incarceration. If the Department Identification Number of an incarcerated inmate, defendant, or witness for process serving is not available prior to arrival, an artful journey marked by legal acumen, meticulous research, and a deep respect for confidentiality will take place. It's a process that demands both patience and precision as process servers navigate the complex world of correctional facilities to fulfill their vital role in the legal system.
