Jail Records – How to Search and Browse Jail Records Online

The first step in conducting a background check on an individual is to find out if the person has ever been arrested or convicted of a crime. This can be done by searching the county where the person lives or by going online and doing a general search on criminal records. Jail records are not automatically available as part of these searches. You must apply for information relating to someone’s arrest or conviction by way of requesting this information from the various criminal justice departments or courts in your area. You should understand that most people who have been convicted of a felony will have had their jail records sealed and will no longer be able to obtain them.

To get a record of a person’s arrest, you will have to apply to the court or jurisdiction which issued the warrant for their arrest. Some jurisdictions will grant an application for an automatic stay, which means that the individual has to stay away from the person that they were arrested for a certain amount of time after their arrest. Others will not grant an application for a stay. If the applicant does not have an immediate need to view the records, they may be able to view them at any future time.

In cases where the person has been arrested for a crime, the clerk of the court may require that a formal written statement be given to them by the person stating that they have never been arrested for that crime and that the person will not commit the crime again. jail records are available after the person has served their jail sentence. You will also find that state criminal records are available to people who apply for a concealed weapons permit. There are some states that have a twenty-four hour rule so that a person can apply for this type of license immediately after their sentence has ended. Records are also available when one is applying for employment with the Military; although most employers are bound by military rules.

Searching for these types of records can be done in many different ways. You can contact the local sheriff’s department to see if the person’s record is available, or you can perform a criminal record search online. The first method is to visit the local sheriff’s department and request the report; usually this requires that a formal written statement be given, however, if the person has an active arrest warrant, then they will have to provide verification of the warrant before a record can be found.

If you prefer to do the search online, there are many places that have made this very easy. First you can look through the large public records databases to find the information you are looking for. Next you can perform a paid search from one of the reputable background check companies; these companies will charge a small fee but you will get comprehensive records and will know the exact person that you are searching for. Then you can use a state records lookup to find if the person has a criminal record within that state. Finally, you can use a inmate locator to find inmate records or death records.

Although jail records can be considered public domain, they are still a good idea to have handy. Many people end up getting into legal trouble or facing legal action because they did not know that their background information was available. Jail records can help to protect you and your family from such individuals. So the next time you consider doing a background check, consider jail records.
