Criminal Data Sources and Updates
Even though this search covers a greater area geographically than a county court search, criminal record information available at the state level is reliant upon updates provided by local law enforcement and county courts. There are some jurisdictions that may take longer to provide these updates due to lack of manpower or local privacy laws. This is why we recommend also running a manual county court search, which may reveal criminal records that have not yet been updated to the state database.
Keep in mind felonies and misdemeanors may be classified differently due to variances in state law. Criminal background checks for employment also vary from state to state due to local privacy laws and timeliness of updating.
