A sid number is the unique identifying number that the jail assigns to an inmate. This number is used on ALL of his paperwork, booking paperwork, bonds, medical information, court paperwork, everything . It is also the easiest way for Central Records to find someone’s information. The sid number stays the same regardless of how many times an inmate gets arrested so once you get it, save it. You never know when you may need it again.
If you don’t have the inmate’s sid number call Central Records at 210-335-6201. You will need to have the inmate’s name and date of birth ready to give to them so they can look up the information.
