About Criminal Records Search

What Are Criminal Records?

Criminal Records are documents that list an individual's criminal history. A criminal record may include an individual's arrests, warrants, criminal charges filed, and convictions and sentences for criminal offenses. These records may be kept by local law enforcement agencies or criminal courts.

Criminal Records contain a range of information relating to an individual's criminal history. They can include records on city, county, state, or federal criminal violations and convictions. Criminal Records often include both court and police records, including search warrants, arrest warrants, criminal charges, and trial transcripts. They may also list appeals from criminal convictions.

A Criminal Record contains personal information about the accused individual, including his or her full name and birth date, known aliases, and specific details about the individual's criminal charges and convictions. These records include criminal misdemeanors and felonies, as well as moving violations from the unsafe operation of a motor vehicle. They may also include prior convictions, pending or dropped charges, and, in some cases, information about charges where the individual was found not guilty.

A Criminal Record search is typically part of a background check. Many companies and individuals use background checks to screen for someone's criminal history, and Criminal Records are a valuable resource for learning about an individual's charges, convictions, and sentences. Employers, landlords, and law enforcement officers all use Criminal Records to learn about an individual's criminal history.

Criminal Records are useful tools for tracking criminal activity and monitoring an individual's criminal history. Criminal Records are meant to include information on infractions that are relevant in judging an individual's history. Some criminal convictions, such as traffic infractions that pose no risk to the public, are not included in Criminal Records.

Certain information is excluded from Criminal Records, including some juvenile records, non-moving traffic violations, and records that have been expunged or sealed by the courts.
