How to Do a Jail Records Search

Jail Records in Mercer County Kentucky

Searching for jail records in Mercer County, Kentucky is one of the easiest things to do if you are searching for information about a particular person. All you have to do is go online and visit the county’s Record Office of Licensing and Information Processing (ROIP). This office provides you with access to various public information, including criminal records. However, it is vital that you be prepared before going through this information. Below are the steps you need to take when requesting for these records:

Know the person or persons you wish to search for records of. The name of the person will be helpful when you are doing a background check on them. If you are not sure who this individual is, search using their first or last name only. A lot of information can be obtained from the social security number because it contains information regarding birth date, marital status and other vital records.

Choose the website where you wish to conduct your search. There are sites available that will let you do an online jail records lookup in minutes for a small fee. However, if you want to search for information on more than one person, then you should consider paying a subscription fee. Most websites will let you do unlimited jail records searches for one time only.

Type in all the necessary information. Some of the information include the person’s full name, present address, date of birth and date of arrests. You will also need to know the crime the person was convicted of and when. The last thing you want is to give out vital information to someone and later have them arrested for something they did not do! If you are checking up on an employee then also include their date of birth along with their social security number.

Look for any variations in spelling and/or names. Sometimes people change their names to escape legal trouble or sometimes they get a new last name just to escape jail. When doing an online search, make sure you look at all spelling variations. Sometimes you will get information that is wrong. But most of the time, the information provided will be correct.

Now that you know how to perform jail records search, you can start to conduct your own investigation. Start with a name and a state that you believe the person lived in. Cross reference that with the jail records and see if anything comes up. If nothing comes back, then you know the person was indeed in jail and had to serve time. If there is any information at all, then you know you can move forward with your life.
