Jail Records – Get the Information You Need!
When it comes to free public jail records searches you can turn to the Hancock County State Record Department to get access to their database. This is one of the most organized criminal history records databases in the entire state. The problem is there are a few problems with it. There is no way to search for jail records by a state or federal database. You have to know which county the person was arrested and convicted in, and then you need to visit the county record department in that county.
These records are maintained by individual municipalities. In some municipalities they may share the information but that is only in some cases. The courts will order municipalities to provide access to their jail records. They do this because releasing the information would affect their credibility with the community. If the information were to be made public then everyone would know that these records are available.
Fortunately, the courts usually won’t make these records available to the general public. This means that you have to either go to the courthouse in which the crime happened or you have to get the records from the jail records themselves. Unfortunately, many states make the information available on their own website. But since it is state records they have to be compatible with the ones provided by the jail records. This means that information from different websites can’t be cross-referenced.
It is also important to remember that the records aren’t always up to date. Sometimes certain charges are sealed by the courts. This means that the charges against the person weren’t disclosed when the record was created. That means that their criminal record may not reflect the truth. It could be an error.
There are some situations where the jail records won’t be accurate. If a crime was committed and the person has been convicted of it, then that person’s jail record won’t reflect that fact. In other circumstances, the date of the crime can be over a decade old. This can mean that there really wasn’t a conviction at all. So if you want to check up on someone’s past, you will need to find a new database.
There are several services available online that can help you find jail records. The databases they offer are much bigger than most counties will allow. And they can search across state lines, too. This means that you can search for any criminal record that someone might have committed in more than one state. With this kind of service you can be assured that you are getting accurate information and that it is accurate, too.
