County Criminal Search

A criminal search is performed at the county level from the designated central criminal courts, which includes available public felony and misdemeanor records within the requested search scope. The Central Court is considered the court or courts in which felonies and most misdemeanors are adjudicated. The Central Court is also referred to as the “County Seat” Court. The Central Court index may not include all cases that can be found in smaller, local, lower level, outlying or remote municipal courts.

Statewide Criminal Search

A criminal search is performed through available statewide criminal databases. Statewide criminal databases typically contain arrest records that may lack a final disposition; therefore, a county criminal search is often run in concurrence to ensure maximum possible accuracy.

National Federal Criminal Search

A criminal search that is performed at a federal court level from designated federal district courts that includes district access to 94 jurisdictions, including national, state, and district courts. This is a name match only service that includes available public felony and misdemeanor records within a 7-year search scope. Additionally, to enhance search results, we will not return cases that were filed before the subjects submitted date of birth and within fifteen years post the subjects submitted date of birth, to comply with the federal age restrictions.

National Criminal Index Plus

A nationwide, multi-jurisdictional database comprised of thousands of sources, including criminal data, state-level sexual offender registries, and national and international security sources. A county criminal search is run on any possible records to ensure maximum possible accuracy.
