Jail Records in Edgecombe County North Carolina

The question is do jail records stay online? The answer to that question depends on whether the person has a criminal past, if the records are public and available to the general public. If so then they stay online for good as there is no point in having them sealed or destroyed. You see, when you go about doing background checks on people you can get very wide ranging information such as arrest records, driving records, marriage records and so on. It is important to know this information before you employ someone or before you decide to let them move into your home.

However, there are situations where the information is actually private. In Edgecombe County for example the public information is available but it is not freely available to the general public. This is due to the fact that the information must be requested from the county sheriff’s office before it is made readily available to the public. This is a rather long process but it is still fairly easy to do.

So the question still remains, do jail records stay online? The answer to this is yes and no. Yes they do indeed stay online as long as the information is available and no they do not. This information is considered public domain and is available to the public and thus is freely available. However, certain state laws require that the records be retained by the county for up to seven years.

In other cases where the records have been expunged (removed) by the state, then yes they do remain available. However, there is a legal requirement that a formal notice of the expungement be posted to the jail and/or records are held in a retention unit for up to five years. It is important to remember that these are only temporary records and not retriever searches in the traditional sense as you would with a free public records search.

Therefore, although it is possible to obtain jail records in Edgecombe County through public access, you may have to pay a small fee in order to access the information you need. This information is considered public domain, but there is some information that is considered private and not available to the general public. These types of records include marriage records and criminal convictions. If you need any information regarding any one of these types of records, you will likely have to contact the respective county ( Edgecombe County is not different than others) in order to obtain the information you need.

In summary, although it is possible to access jail records for free through public access, you will need to pay for the information you are searching for (on top of the administrative fees). This does not mean that the public record is not available. There are many different database sites online that allow you to search public records at no cost. These databases allow you access to public records that are stored by various government agencies across the country. These databases can help you find what you are looking for, but they can also provide you with additional information if you know what you are looking for. This can be an excellent way to locate public records that you may not be able to find public.
