Statewide Criminal Records

A statewide criminal search is a search of the state's criminal records repository. This search reveals convictions noting date of charge, type, pleas, and disposition, including any time served, fines, and probation information. There are approximately 40 states that provide statewide criminal conviction information, records are either obtained via instant access to the state repository, some require a signed notarized release, and some states require a signed document mailed to them for the release of information.

Statewide criminal records are important documents for employers who are trying to attract quality employees to their company. As many employers know, one unruly employee can create an atmosphere of discontent in an entire company It's good business to know as much about one's employees as possible before signing those contracts.

Statewide criminal records are valuable due to the fact that they cover the entire state, not just a few counties. One must bear in mind that while statewide criminal searches are an invaluable tool when doing a criminal search, in some states the information is only as good as what is provided to it from the various county criminal record courthouses. In addition to accessing a state's criminal repository, it is always advisable to search the applicant's county of residence for criminal records, along with any other counties the applicant may have resided.
