Jail Records Search – How to Locate Jail Records

Jail records in Cumberland County are considered public record, and are open to the public. Anyone can access information on a person’s jail records including his booking photos, criminal charges, disposition dates, names, date of birth, SSN, or any other pertinent information pertaining to an individual’s arrest. These are considered public records. However, the laws in different states differ on whether these records are available for free or with a price tag. Some states allow you to access free-of-charge information on jail records.

If you live in Maine, which is one of the fifty U.S. states that do not maintain a national database of arrest warrants, you can retrieve your jail records by going to the county sheriff or local courthouse. However, this information is not considered public record. In jail records, the person’s name and any other pertinent details about his arrest are not included along with his personal particulars. In other words, you will not be able to obtain this information through the jail records.

There are several reasons why a person would want to have his or her jail records. Employers often run criminal background checks on job applicants. They want to know if a person had ever been arrested, or even put behind bars. Law enforcement authorities perform checks on people applying for certain positions. And civil courts, which handle disputes and family issues such as custody and child support, also require people to disclose their jail records if they want to receive the assistance of that particular court.

On the other hand, if you are looking for information regarding your loved one’s jail past, then you may be able to find it out. There are websites online that contain complete databases of arrest warrants and other public information. You can check arrest records for free. And the level of detail that you will obtain is actually pretty impressive. This is because the state of Maine requires that the jail in question provide the state with one hundred and twenty-two hundred files relating to their inmates. If there are any discrepancies, then the jail will have to issue a correction to the article.

The good news is that if the person was convicted of a felony and served time in jail, then those pieces of information are kept in their file. While it is true that most people who were once in jail are not repeat offenders, you still need to be wary when conducting a search of this nature. Jail records are not the same as a person’s civil record.

For example, if a person has been convicted of domestic violence, then he or she will not have his or her jail records listed in the local newspaper. Instead, you will have to contact the local sheriff’s department or the circuit court. This can be done through an online form or by contacting the clerk’s office directly.
