What does the disposition code "SP4" mean on the inmate information search on the lasd.org website (Los Angeles Sheriff's Department)? I read that it could mean state prison four years or supervised probation, but I am not sure which one it could be.

Inmate Information Codes

Well in the sites FAQ it says ( for sp3 not sp4 ):

Q: What does the code SP3 mean next to a case?

A: SP3 means that there was a sentence to State Prison and all the inmate's paperwork has been processed and he/she waiting for transportation to the Department of Corrections. Once the inmate has left County jail, the release information section will show the date and time they were sent.

So, I assume SP4 is just another level of documentation. I'd be willing to bet that since SP3 means they are in transportation stage that SP4 means they are transferred and set where they are going. (07/21/2009)

The best way to get an accurate answer is to telephone the Los Angeles Sheriff's Department and ask them. (07/18/2009)

It generally means sexual predator 4 which is pretty bad here in Oregon. But yes, do ask or see if there is a legend you can look up. Good luck. (07/18/2009)

SP4 means on his way to State Prison. Sorry. I googled it. I put in the google.com line. "SP4 in Los Angeles County Jail system" and that is what it told me.

Mostly likely just State Prison. Does that sound fitting to your inmate?

It is possible that codes can have a different meaning in different state/counties but in general their meaning should be very close everywhere.

CITE Cited and released

Most likely the person has is waiting to be released and this could mean several hours waiting.

You must be in California as these are the acronyms for credits in the CA prison system.
This is pretty new to law enforcement and in CA it's called Proposition 57 and was enacted in 2016-2018 so credits must have been earned after 2017.

MCC - Milestone Completion Credits
RAC - Rehabilitative Achievement Credits
EMC - Educational Merit Credits
ECC - ?? (This I have never seen - I'm in Florida so our system will not be the same).

If someone is going up for release from prison the judge will have a record of all credits earned toward an early release.
There may not be credits earned in every category but someone in charge should be able to tell you if there are credits earned and how many points.

It appears that you have a list of all the codes except Ecc. I have tried to find this and I do not see it on the documents you can find online. I would suggest contacting the prison to find out what this code means. There are some prisons that have a different code system they use.

What does "released from jail on a 911 call" mean? I received this message from Vinelink about an offender that was arrested for stalking my family member.

Best Answer

I would actually call the jail to find out what it means. If you had placed a 911 call about this person who was stocking you it appears that someone posted his bail and he has been realeased.

Just to be on the safe side call the jail to make sure.

My friend is in jail waiting for trial. The last I heard he was going to trial last Monday, but I haven't heard anything. I went to look his name up on my county's jail roster and saw the code by his name changed from "CH" to "SE" with a P after it that has always been there.

I have looked up and have not seen these charges. You could call the jail and ask them or a lawyer in your county. This is a general question. You are not asking for personal information

Most likely the first is "charged" and the second is "sentenced". But yes, look it up or call them to be sure.

I believe Sandi is right about the charged and sentenced but you should be able to call the courthouse and find out for sure.

Also, all of this is usually public record so you should be able to find what the sentence is but it may take several days before it is posted on their site.

If you know the facility where he is/was located, you may be able to go there and request permission to see him. They should be able to tell you if he is there and if he is eligible for having visitors. You may have to complete a form and he may have to agree to see you. But maybe you will find out where he is or where he is going to be placed.

Your sheriff's office, jail main number or courthouse main number should be able to help you.

If you Google your town's name and roster codes, some even have that info in their FAQs.

Prayers for you and your friend!
