All criminals have gone through a process of either a trial or plea deal which is all public record and the public should have access to see when a criminal is being released back into society and the public should be able to view what crimes the criminal has been convicted on and what their sentence/prison term is for the crimes they have committed. The prison should list the convicts data such as the crime for which they are currently in prison, previous prison sentences and time served, last known residence or declared domicile, residency or nationality (if they are a foreign national, US resident, illegal alien, etc) and if they are not a US resident it should list under what legal grounds they are in the country ie green card, H1B visa, tourist visa, or if they are in the country illegally.

The prison should also list any parol hearing dates which should be publicly available so that those who oppose the early release for people convicted of a certain crime, can attend the hearing and state their case to the board for their opposition to granting parole.

The prison should have a daily intake log, with all the convicts data and they should also list upcoming prisoner release at least a week before the prisoner is released. Each prisoner page should have their release date but there should be a separate page where each date has a list of prisoners scheduled to be released on that date and on the same page, it should list their crime, sentence length & date they entered prison, city/township & state of residency, nationality and current residency status (green card, visa, illegal alien, natural born citizen, immigrant & nation or origin, etc).

How about not forcing someone to pay to remove their arrest record when they got it thrown out due to a technicality?

That’s the states fault, not theirs.

This is already the standard. All of this info is public record.

well from what I have seen, it is quite lacking in functionality for the prisons & jails I looked at. The only way to find inmates or anything about convicts inside is to search their name. This is inadequate IMO.

There needs to be a calendar list and the names of the convicts to be released on that date, if any. Next to the inmate's name, all the information should be listed, including crime, sentence, previous convictions, nationality or immigration status.

If anyone has seen a prison that has a site like this, please link to it because I haven't found any yet

Why?

Much of what you request is already available.

Why does the OP think we (taxpayers) should pay to satisfy his curiosity? There were 2,220,300 people incarcerated in the US in 2013. And the task and cost would be astronomical. Release dates change constantly. You earn good time toward early release as you spend time. And you can earn extra good time for all manner of things, like getting a GED/degree, donating blood, participating in certain programs (drug rehab, anger management, etc). And parole hearings can change release dates as can resentencings resulting from appeals.
He also ignores the fact that with a little research effort all the info is already available.
There are 1,719 state prisons, 102 federal prisons, 942 juvenile correctional facilities, 3,283 local jails, and 79 Indian Country jails as well as military prisons, immigration detention facilities, and civil commitment centers in the US. If each facility only hired 2 people to perform the jobs the OP wants, you're talking about over 12,000 new full time employees. The average prison employee in the US is paid $42,550/year. Add another 30% for benefits like insurance, pensions, etc., and you're talking about a bill to taxpayers of roughly $700 million per year to satisfy the OP's curiosity. No thanks.
