Know Where To Perform Public Records Search

By David Marshall

It is estimated that 30% of Americans will have criminal records of some kind in their lifetime. That means there are easily millions of us who are technically criminals at some point in our life. Seriously, the dangerous ones are the ones we are concerned about. Those behind bars will get out in due course and they are the ones we should watch out for. So how can we tell them apart?

We can indeed quite readily find out the truth about people on many things, past and present, not least their criminal history or current standing from their Public Criminal Records. There are several other related supportive-type record categories such as Arrest, Inmates, Jail, Sex Offender and Police Records but Free Criminal Records Check is the most widely used as far as Criminal Violation Checks are concerned.

Being Public Records, they are accessible by anyone so long as it’s done legitimately. As little as just a full name and state of residence is enough to initiate a search on Public Criminal Records. This can be done at the local police department if the exact residence of the subject is known. Otherwise, it can be done at the state level agency tasked with the function. The request can be submitted by mail, fax, telephone or walk in. Online option over the internet is also increasingly available. In the case of requesting them from the FBI, it must be done in writing. Then again, the no-fuss way is by purchasing them from commercial record providers.

The standard information found in Public Criminal Records are the personal particulars of the subject, the details of the crime like date and place where it’s committed, the case type and number, photographs, conviction or sentence, arresting agency and so forth. If there were multiple criminal violations, they will all be shown except for those which were committed outside of the state.

Free Public Criminal Records come under state jurisdiction. There are thus variations from state to state in the laws governing their access and the permissible treatment and use of information derived from them. The record databases throughout the different states are also not linked so search results on them are only up to state level. If you wish to investigate someone regardless of the state, a search would have to be conducted on each of the states that the person has resided in.

Free Criminal Records Search come in free-of-charge (FOC) and fee-based versions. FOC records are predominantly derived from government agencies and hence entail some degree of formality and procedures. The fee-based ones are expectedly much friendlier. In addition to government sources, their information records are also tapped from private and proprietary database networks.
