SC Dept of Corrections

The server hardware running the SWORD web site suffered a catastrophic failure on October 26, 2017 and will not be replaced.


Booking Searches

The SWORD booking search will no longer be supported, but the JusticeXchange® system from Appriss offers most of the same features with free licenses for SC Sheriffs and other sworn law enforcement officers.

To register for free JusticeXchange and NPLEx licenses, please complete the brief form linked below, press its SEND button, then send the resulting email. Questions may be addressed to justiceXchange@doc.sc.gov

Custodian of Evidence Registrations

The custodian of evidence notifications are generated on a separate server and have continued to be delivered. A service to accept new custodian of evidence registrations has been developed to replace the SWORD registration process and is currently available on the SCDC public web site. It is integrated into the public inmate search at http://www.doc.sc.gov/InmateSearchDisclaimer.html.
