How to Search For Jail Records Online

Access to public jail records in McDowell County, North Carolina can now be accessed easily online. The availability of these types of records is becoming more common because of the nature of electronic information storage. There are many reasons a person may want to search for and/or review these types of records. It may be as simple as a job application or it could be an individual who is involved in a criminal investigation and wants to gather other information about the suspect.

Jail records are considered public information and anyone can access them. If you are an employer in the area, you can find out if a potential employee has any jail time on their record. By conducting a standard search of that person’s name in a major search engine such as Google or Yahoo, you will be able to see if anything comes up. If it doesn’t, then you can move onto other options for checking jail records.

In order to obtain jail records, there are specific steps that must be taken first. These steps are outlined in the Access to Court Electronic Records (ACR) act of 1994. This act requires that all states meet certain minimum standards when it comes to maintaining these types of public information. Before any results are displayed from an online search, the person being searched for must provide the person’s name and current address, which should match the information that was originally entered into the system. Failure to do so can result in inaccurate data being given to the person requesting the information.

Because of this requirement for accuracy, it is a good idea to find a website that will perform the searches for free. These services can give you the person’s current address, any jail time they have served in the past, any civil cases filed against them, and other information that may be helpful when making a decision. You will need to enter as much information as possible, including the person’s name, date of birth, social security number, work history, educational background and marital status.

When searching for jail records using this method, you will probably find that you need to pay to read all of the results. This is due to the fact that jail records are maintained in different places. Some of them are kept in state and local departments while others are kept within the federal government. If you are trying to access records for the first time, it is recommended that you use an online site that charges a small fee to access all of the records at once. This way, you will only be required to pay one time and then be able to access all of the records as many times as you want at your convenience. If you are trying to perform multiple searches, paying the small fee may be well worth it to save time in the future.

If you cannot find information for jail records by using the above methods, you can always contact the local sheriff’s office or state police department. They will have archived copies of jail records stored in their database. If the person in question has been convicted of a crime, they will be required to provide this information upon your request. You will need to fill out an application for information about the person and then the records will be mailed to you.
