Alabama Jail logs and mugshots are public records! "The sheriff must keep, in his office and subject to the inspection of the public during office hours, a well-bound book, to be procured at the expense of the county, in which he must enter a description of each prisoner received into the county jail, showing the name, age, sex, color and any other distinguishing marks, together with the charge for which such prisoner is held, the order and date of commitment and the order and date of release."
