Connecticut Public Records: Latest Questions and Answers
Q: Putnam, Arrest Records
by anonymous
A:Putnam is in Windham County, CT, there's also a Windham town. The township seems to have the better website. The county sheriffs doesn't seem to have a site and the Putnam Police Department's site is down. On the town's web page there's a drop down menu which shows Willimantic Police Department, on this page you can see how to get copies of reports and the contact number. If this is a recent arrest, try crime mapping, but you must know the location of the arrest since the names do not show, only the arresting department, incident, time and location.

Q: how do i find the owner of a business? Washington Depot, Connecticut
by wendy
A:Here’s the link to the state’s secretary of state’s corporation search http://www.sos.wa.gov/corps/corps_search.aspx. If you do not have the company’s name, you can do an address search first. A people locator search (a search that looks for names and addresses) will give you a list of addresses that is found under the person’s name. The addresses are not always residences, they can be of businesses also, you can tell since P.O. Boxes are listed and no one lives in their mail box. Once you have the address, you can do a reverse search. An address reverse search offered by many sources you can find online will list what is found under the address, including the business. Once the name of the business appears under a particular address, you can then conduct the secretary of state corporate search. You can try to search business directories using chamber of commerce websites. Begin with the one nearest to the person or where you believe the company would be as the chamber of commerce tends to be local.

Q: what is the homlessness population in the city
by Tammie
A:It would be interesting to see how this information would be gathered. Who is considered homeless? This can be persons displaced from the downturn staying with family or friends, which can be very high in some areas only in bad economies. Looking at how any organization/entity comes up with that statistic would be just as important as the number itself. Many areas have changed drastically since 2007 as the economy has affected various cities differently.

Q: What's a firearm background check?
by ellen
A:1968 President Lydon Johnson enacted the gun control act due to the assassinations of Robert F Kenedy, Martin Luther King and Malcom X. In 1993, President Clinton signed the Brady act into law after President Reagan’s near fatal assassination attempt. The National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) was implemented by the FBI on November, 30th 1998. The NICS is a national center that performs background checks for Federal Firearms Licensees or also referred to as FFLs. All FFLs must conduct a NICS search. This process begins with an applicant purchasing a firearm to complete and submit the Alcohol Tobacco and Firearm (ATF) form 4473. This form can be submitted by calling 1-877-FBI-NICS or by logging into the NICS E-Check website www.nicsezcheckfbi.gov. The applicant's identifying information will be processed and compared to millions of records stored in 3 nationally held databases. The Interstate Identification Index which holds criminal history records, National Crime Information Center NCIC hold warrants and protection orders, the NCIS records of individuals prohibited from purchasing or possessing firearms.

Q: Can an individual request police reports without having any personal involvement? General information purposes?
by betty
A:If you're looking for police reports for general information purposes, press releases from law enforcement agency sites can be viewed or downloaded freely. Instead of specific police reports about a particular event, incidents that are of interest to the general public can be found in updated press releases, here's one from the Bridgeport Police Department website http://www.bridgeportct.gov/content/89019/89755/90919/default.aspx. That still may not find everything. In the search of information surrounding the Sandy Hook incident, the city's site http://www.bridgeportct.gov/ itself has the lead in the providing the public with updates and news.
