Jail Records – Accessibility and Accuracy

Jail records are a public record that is used to determine if a person is a repeat offender or has served time for a crime. These criminal records are also used by employers to ensure that they are hiring an honest person. For example, if you want to know if the person you want to babysit your children is free of charges then you will perform a jail records search to find out.

Jail records are available from many of the county libraries throughout Hancock County. There is a charge for the information; however, it is minimal. The cost of the information is more than worth the cost of the record because you are getting the information you need fast and the information is current. If there is not a library in your area then the easiest and most efficient way to get the information you want is through the internet.

Most counties have a website access to perform a jail records check on someone. This is easy to do as all you will need to do is visit the website of the county courthouse to conduct your search. Once there you will be able to see if the person you are searching for has been in jail and if so, how long and when. In some cases, you can even perform the search from your own home. For those who do not have a computer at home, the best option would be to hire a website to do all the hard work for you.

There are many reasons you may want to perform a jail records check. Perhaps you are moving to a new neighborhood and are worried about living next door to a sex offender or a thief. This is an extreme precaution but it is still important to make sure the neighborhood is safe. Another reason to look up these records is to verify the information provided to you by a prospective employee or job applicant. You want to make sure that this person is who they say they are and does not have a criminal background.

There are many websites that are available to perform a jail lookup but you must be careful. Since these companies pay to access the jail databases, they are able to gather much more detailed information than you can. One way to minimize the amount of inaccurate information you are given is to choose a reputable company to do your search for you. Also, you may want to enlist the help of a friend or family member who has knowledge of jail activities in their community.

Regardless of your reasons for performing a jail records lookup, you are better safe than sorry. The accuracy of these records are well worth the small fee you pay. If you are looking to hire someone to work in your home keep in mind that most background checks require at least a signature and sometimes several. Jail time can wreak havoc on anyone’s record and keeping yourself and your family safe is of utmost importance.
