County Criminal Search
A criminal search 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 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.
Federal Criminal Search
A criminal search performed at the federal level from the designated Federal District Courts, which includes available public felony and misdemeanor records within the requested search scope.
National Criminal Index Plus
A nationwide, multi-jurisdictional database comprised of hundreds of sources including criminal data (Department of Corrections, county and state), state level sexual offender registries, national and international security sources. A county criminal search is run on any possible records to ensure maximum possible accuracy.
