Anyone in your day to day life could have arrest records, sometimes even people you wouldn’t expect. Your neighbors, family, friends, co-workers, and yes even bosses can have arrest records and you might never be able to guess. Maybe you and your associates were gathered around the water cooler or out to lunch and got to wondering if your boss has been arrested, and now you want to find out how to get this information. Luckily, you have a couple different avenues you can try.
Finding Arrest Records Using Government Databases.
Many county sheriff’s departments and courthouses provide access to public arrest records on their websites, which is a free easy way to access arrest records assuming that you know what counties you need to check and that the counties you need to check have this information available. The positive aspects of this approach are that it can be easy if you don’t have many places you need to check, and most counties do have up-to-date accurate records easily available.
Unfortunately, this approach is not perfect. Not every county provides this information or keeps it up to date. It’s likely that if you need to search in a large county that is well funded and well staffed that they will update their records at least once a day and make the whole database super easy for the public to access. On the other hand, smaller counties with less resources are likely to either have outdated information, or don’t make this information easily accessible to the public at all because they need the resources for something else.
Another negative to this approach is that you need to know what counties to check in, which can be an issue if you don’t know where your boss has lived. It can also be very time consuming if you have to check through multiple government websites to pull up records from different parts of the country, and if you run into a smaller county that doesn’t have accurate information available you can miss out on a lot of valuable information.
Online Background Check Companies.
In the last couple decades, many companies have taken up the task of providing background checks for their customers. SpyFly is an excellent example of this kind of a company, and they strive to bring only the most accurate, up-to-date information available. In the majority of cases, they are able to bring you search results instantly, so the most time consuming part of your search is filling out the required fields to make a search through their website. These services are able to give information quickly because they have access to public records databases all across the country, saving you all of the footwork if you need to check in more than one county or you don’t know every county you need to check.
Oftentimes these services will also give you things like driving records, criminal history, court records, and even phone records if available. Most people find this to be the best path when they need to conduct a background check on someone in their personal lives.
