Jail Records Search – How to Locate Them Online

Jail Records in Pulaski County Kentucky

In Kentucky, as in the rest of the United States, public access to criminal justice information is a right protected by law. Although the Fourth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution gives freedom of speech and Press from the ill-informed or unprofessional enforcement of laws, the right of any individual to obtain information about someone else is considered a reasonable search for which there must be tangible and reasonable evidence of wrongdoing on the part of the subject of the investigation. Criminal justice information is classified in two forms: Criminal Justice Information and Public Access to Criminal Justice Information. These categories are often confused for one another but have distinctive differences in how the information is classified. In Pulaski County, criminal justice information is available without restriction except as specifically provided by statute.

Criminal justice information is all matters that are considered to be factual by the courts, including: arrest records, convictions, time served in jail, crimes with jail terms, and records of sex offenses. However, it does not include all matters that are considered public domain. Criminal justice information may be withheld from the public in many circumstances, including matters not related to safety or security. Sometimes, records are withheld from the public when there is reason to believe that the release of information will harm the image of certain individuals, organizations, or governments. Certain laws also allow for withholding of records if they contain any information that was considered private at one time and is now considered a matter of public record. A number of states also prohibit the showing of jail records to anyone other than the people involved in the crime or their attorneys.

By a legal interpretation, jail records cannot be freely accessed because it is a sensitive category of data. Under this interpretation, access to such records is only allowed when there is a valid reason. This reason is determined by each state’s regulations. These records can be searched online, through agencies like those that maintain public court records, or through specialized search companies. The cost of searching through these channels depends largely on the nature of the records you want.

Many records can be searched online. A number of websites have sprung up to help people locate their jail records. At a minimum, these companies will charge you a fee for access to their extensive databases. However, some companies allow you to search their databases for free, and there are even some who provide completely free background checks.

Before you choose a company to perform your jail records search, make sure it is not a scam. There are a lot of fly-by-night sites that exist solely to swindle people looking for jail records. These sites commonly offer to give you unlimited searches or to provide you with a completely free report. If you’re lucky, you’ll find one or two that have decent information. However, if you choose poorly, you’ll likely end up with a lousy report or none at all.

One option that’s growing increasingly popular among people who are interested in searching for jail records is to use an online criminal records background search. These services have databases that are extremely large and constantly updated. They have literally tens of thousands of different categories of criminal activity, including arrests and convictions. Because they are entirely electronic, you can perform an online search in a matter of minutes and receive a comprehensive report on someone’s past.
