Jail Records – Are You Able To View These Information Publicly?

Jail Records in Twin Falls County Idaho

Searching for Twin Falls County Jail Records? The best place to do this is the right place. Now there is an online service that can help you find jail records for any of the counties in Idaho including Twin Falls County. However, some county and state governments only publish their records online if they are in compliance with privacy legislation.

The vital information provided by jail records can include arrests, charges, disposition dates, names, and dates of birth. It may also provide information about criminal convictions such as prison, jail, military, or probation/ parole. Some states also offer access to inmate records and sexual offender records. The information provided in jail records is considered public domain. However, some states such as Idaho require prior permission from the individual in question for any public access to this information.

There is currently a pending bill in Congress that would make available public access to much more of the information previously available only to licensed attorneys and law enforcement officials. Currently, only federal agencies and courts are able to require the disclosure of these records under the Freedom of Information Act. This bill would lift that restriction. Proponents of the legislation claim that it will help people make informed decisions on legal matters.

The opposite side has warned that if the bill becomes law, legitimate concerns about abuse will arise. They argue that jail records should be made available to protect the safety of individuals. Those who are concerned about protecting their safety could use public records to check up on neighbors, nannies, and employees. Also, sex offenders are not necessarily restricted by state law to keep their background information private. And criminals could use jail records to find out about people they feel are inappropriate to associate with.

Those who support releasing information regarding criminal activity point out that Twin Falls County, which is located in Idaho, is one of the most congested court houses in the nation. That could mean that jail records could be a matter of public record for many years to come. There’s also little impetus for law enforcement to keep information on jail records confidential. With a large number of repeat offenders, law enforcement officers are probably already having enough trouble keeping track of people with severe criminal activity.

Disclosing jail records does have some advantages. If you believe someone might be violating the law, you can look them up using an online database. If you’re hiring a driver, or a handyman, you could look up their background information.
