Jail Records Lookup – Conduct a Jail Records Search to Get the Facts

When searching for jail records you will most likely find the city and county in which the person was convicted is listed first. For example, if you were arrested in Shelby County for theft then you would be searching for: Shelby County Records of Last Certificate of Deposition, Court Record of Appointment or Prison Record of Foreclosure. These are just a few example of the many different classifications of jail records that can be searched. There may be additional records available depending on the crime you were convicted of and there may also be information available concerning prior offenses. These data bases can be very useful sources of information in your personal investigations, background checks and other purposes.

There are two main options for accessing these records. They are: free public records searches and fees charged by agencies offering these services. There are benefits to either method. Free Searches are generally fairly easy to conduct, but may not provide accurate results.

Paying for records service is much more efficient. Agencies providing this service have access to millions of public records and can compile and maintain these databases quickly and efficiently. In some cases, you may have to pay a small fee, but it is worth the price when compared to the potential time investment. You also don’t have to worry about being scammed or wasting time searching for outdated or wrong information.

Some records are not available as public record. If the offense occurred prior to the passage of a new federal civil rights act, then these records cannot be searched. The guidelines are fairly loose, so almost any information on jail or prison records can be researched with minimal effort.

If you are interested in conducting a jail records lookup but do not know where to start, try an online agency. A number of websites have sprung up over the last decade, all of which offer fairly comprehensive jail records and inmate information. All require a membership fee, which is often nominal compared to the value you may receive. Once you have access to the database, you can begin your search by entering the name of the person of interest. Jail records will reveal exactly where they were convicted and for how long they were held.

It is important to note that information found on jail records does not always reflect current information. Some of it may be out of date, or simply inaccurate. However, the vast majority of the data is accurate and will give you everything you need to know. Even if you don’t intend to use the information for any purpose, having access to such information can be useful. For instance, you may want to check up on a neighborhood before making a decision.
