Jail Records – Obtaining Criminal Records Information From Jail

Access to Texas jail records is a matter of public record and can be obtained through different means. However, there are many reasons why you would need to look at these records before proceeding with any particular search. In order to be legally represented in court, it is mandatory that a person give their real name and current address when applying for a job or before they can rent a house or before they can board a plane to another county. By using the services of an agency specializing in jail records, you will be able to gather all of this information so that you will know who is who when you need to take legal action.

Jail records are available for anyone to see. In Texas, state and local laws regarding criminal activity is pretty specific and only police and other law enforcement officials are allowed to view them. If you want to search for someone’s arrest record, you will first have to fill out a formal request for information. Most requests go through the sheriff of the court where the offense occurred so that all of the necessary paperwork can be filled out correctly. It may be necessary to appear personally in court if you wish to view the documents.

When searching for jail records, it is necessary to understand that they are not the same as public records. Jail records are not supposed to be publicly accessible so anyone requesting them has to go through a lot of red tape. Although people have gotten access to some types of this information over the past decade, it is still difficult to get any details from certain counties in Texas. In some counties it is simply impossible to get jail records without paying a lot of money or going through a lot of hassle. Even then, there are often loopholes in the system that make it seem as though the information is free but in reality it is not.

For instance, one type of criminal background check does not require the person to actually show up in court. Instead, an agency has to gather information from various government databases. If the person being investigated happens to be a resident of that county, then it can be done even without them knowing. However, if the person has never lived in the area or is a non-residents of that county, it is still considered as “fishing” for information and the information cannot be accessed without paying a fee.

Jail records, on the other hand, are public information. Anyone can obtain them by simply requesting it from the courts. Some courts in Texas require that one present proof of identification before requesting the criminal history, while others don’t. Of course, proof of identification isn’t enough – one must provide some other information as well. One example is a SSN, which could mean Social Security Number or a Tax ID number.

In any case, jail records are helpful for when you need some basic information about someone’s history. They are especially useful if you are about to hire a new nanny or gardener. But of course, the information provided by any of these services should be treated with caution as not all criminal records are available. The records are usually obtained for a nominal fee and they are considered a sensitive and personal matter.
