The Criminal records are the history records that describes any arrests and subsequent dispositions attributable to an individual. Complete, accurate, and immediately accessible records enable States to check backgrounds of persons responsible for child, elder and disabled care identify individuals who have a history of domestic violence or stalking make informed decisions relating to pretrial release and detention of offenders, prosecutions of career criminals and appropriate correctional confinement conduct background checks to protect public safety and national security

Criminal records are upheld by each individual State in a central repository. To facilitate the interstate exchange of criminal history records, the FBI maintains the Inter-state Identification Index (III) which is a unique system that maintains and manages the records of persons arrested for felonies or serious misdemeanors under State or Federal law.


Not all states allow public access to statewide criminal records information. Some allow online access, while others require written application forms. Fees vary, and access may require a specific authorization form and/or specific identifying information such as full name, address, date of birth, social security number, and county of residence.

Information provided by a statewide record system may be incomplete due to limited date ranges or the limited number of courts and offenses for which records are maintained. "Offender" or "inmate" searches are generally limited to individuals who were sentenced to state prison. Many states provide free online access to sex offender registries (SORs), but information provided through these registries is also limited. Check with the sources listed about such limitations.

Criminal records checks include convictions and sometimes arrests. Child abuse registry checks can reveal if a person was named in a report, but registry checks are not available in all states. Contact the state child protective services agency for information on access.
