Jail Records – A Quick Reference

Public information in Kentucky is controlled by various laws that ensure access to vital records for investigation purposes. For example, the Freedom of Information Act grants the freedom of people to obtain records from state and local agencies. Under the law, public records are available to the public and can be searched for free. However, under certain circumstances and as per individual requirements, some information is required to be paid for.

The right to access public jail records is granted to the individual on a voluntary basis, provided the person does not reveal confidential or private information about himself. He also has the right to view all the records at no additional cost. Apart from these two basic rights, there are some other important ones that are protected by law. One may be arrested for breaking the law, while another may be accused of a crime but may not be able to afford the lawyer to defend him.

Jail records reveal many things about an individual. Jail records of sex offenders, for instance, are made accessible to the public when they register with the local courthouse. Similarly, records of arrest for various violations like grand theft auto, burglary, assault and other criminal activities are accessible through a public records search.

Criminal records are basically where the government has to state the complete particulars of a person who has been accused of a crime and then is being tried or penalized. Jail records include personal particulars of a person, his past and present occupation, court records, arrest warrants, jail history, rehabilitation records, driving records, etc. Searching through these records ensures that you are not wasting your time by conducting the search without having proper directions.

There are different types of jail records that are available in the public domain; hence the information can be broadly classified into public and private jail records. Government public jail records are generally more accurate than the records maintained by the county and state governments. These are made accessible to the general public through the courthouses. These also come in handy when you need to conduct a background check on someone.

Private jail records are mostly kept behind the walls of the jail itself. You will have to contact the jail directly to obtain this information. You can also obtain it from the state criminal records office. Another option is to hire a private detective to do the search for you. However, most people feel that paying money is not a very bad thing especially if it means that you will not have to waste your precious time and effort going through public record databases. If you want to get the information faster, then you can just log on to the internet and use one of the public record search engines such as Google, Yahoo, and MSN.
