    An individual can obtain a Letter of Incarceration from the Tarrant County Sheriff’s Office Records Division to prove when the individual was in the Tarrant County Jail.  Anyone wanting a Letter of Incarceration must come to the Tarrant County Sheriff’s Records Division on the 6th floor of 200 Taylor Street in Fort Worth between 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. and show a valid state photo identification.  A friend or family member cannot request a Letter of Incarceration on another individual, unless the individual is still in the Tarrant County Jail.

    Government agencies can request in writing by fax, e-mail, mail or in-person to receive a Letter of Incarceration on an individual.  In addition, attorneys can follow this same process to obtain Letter of Incarceration on their clients.
