Countywide Criminal Search

This is a comprehensive search of seven or 10 years of criminal histories retrieved directly from the source.

Statewide Criminal Search

A statewide criminal records search is generally conducted through a central repository that includes information from the state’s participating jurisdictions. A state’s central repository primarily houses information provided by county courts and law enforcement. The quality and completeness of the statewide criminal records data relies entirely on what information is reported, how it is reported, and when it is reported by the local authority. County-level searches are also recommended in combination with the statewide search in order to compensate for any missing information.
