Jail Records Are Public Information

In Scott County, the most popular county in northwestern Mississippi, the Freedom of Information Act makes public any public records that are in the custody of the state or federal government. Among these are all jail records. While it was long believed that Mississippi was one of the few states in the US that did not allow public access to jail records, the new sheriff’s department has reversed this position and is providing all jail records to the public. This means that people living in Scott County can now look up public jail records and learn if someone they know has been in jail.

This information has been useful to law enforcement agencies for years. In the past, they would have to go to court to get access to the jail docket. By searching publicly, they could at least get a glimpse into the jail activities of their subjects, but they never had a complete picture of who they were looking at. However, the new electronic databases make it possible to find out the complete background of anyone. If you are interested in accessing these records, you will need to register with an online agency which provides this kind of search.

The online sites that provide this service operate in similar ways. They first have to determine if you are a person or a company who needs the records. Once registered, you will be provided with a comprehensive list of records that you can search through. You can get information such as the personal particulars of the person in jail, criminal activity, arrest warrants, inmate records, parole records, jail time records and more.

In addition, you can also get information about the person’s employer, family members and other people whom the subject may have involved in contact with. Searching through the jail records makes it much easier to obtain public records from various locations within a state. If there are multiple public records of someone, you can select the one you want and copy it to another file. This will make your search much easier.

If you plan on using an online search, you should take some precautions before you begin the process. Although you may be able to gain access to records quickly and easily, this does not mean that you should give out your personal information such as your social security number. There are many sites that are reputable but are fraudulent.

Before starting your search for jail records, make sure you are going through a reputable site. It is important that the site that you choose has a proven history and is well-known for providing quality information. You can look through the internet for reputable agencies. Some websites offer free searches while others charge nominal fees. Some offer a yearlong membership which allows you unlimited searches for a whole year.
