Q: Do criminal checks include history of mental illness (South Bend, Indiana)
by abc
A:If the information you are looking for are in medical records the answer is no, they’re not public. If you’re looking for criminal records, they can be obtained by conducting a background check or looking up case filings. So, the answer is if the history of mental illness only appears in medical records, they will not be made public. However, mental illnesses can appear in civil and criminal cases which are public record and can be accessed in several ways. You can obtain court case records online or by going to the physical location of the court and conduct a search there. You will also be able to request copies and the fees are generally low. The time it takes to go to the court is usually the biggest draw back. You can try to get the record online and thereafter you can see if you still need to go to the courthouse.

Q: Is there an available data base that shows persons charged with gun crimes and the outcome of their trial?
by Bob
A:First I would try and think who would put this information together. Court files are found in the courthouse and an online subscriber service, similar to what an attorney firm would have. Those searches can be narrowed by keyword. I think that someone would have to put this data together since these type of cases aren't broken down at the courthouse, such as criminal and civil, family courts and so on. You can look at the news published reports, but specifics on how the conclusions are rarely found.

Q: how can i find out by address if anyone was murdered in my house? (Indianapolis IN)
by keeke
A:You can look up periodicals. A search by address, city or description of the location should be helpful when looking up if there's a story written about it in online news wires. Another viable way to approach this is by looking up the past owners of the property. If you do not have the names of previous owners, you can get it from the deed recorders. There after you can search under the name of the home owners in the periodicals. Chances are their names are included in a column that could have been written. If the online news wires do not go far back in time sufficiently, you can visit the library nearby the property and look up archived reports.

Q: Open record statutes generally pertain to the availability of information held by government entities. In some instances, companies that are contracted by officials or their agencies to perform certain tasks and responsibilities on behalf of the government can also fall into open records laws. These laws are in place to promote transparent governments and their functions, procedures, future plans, meetings, budgets, documents, recorded materials and more. This source aims to assist users with obtaining recorded documents that are sought by and open to the public. Statutes pertaining to open records, sometimes named sunshine laws, open meetings and records laws and so forth, generally guarantee the access to such records. Other guidelines within open records laws look at issues such as prohibitive costs associated with obtaining public information. However, many of these laws do not address the ease of access in which the public can obtain them. As many government entities do not strive to promote their services as private companies do, their sources and services are not easily found by persons not familiar with requesting public data and where to look. Questions such as 'where do I find marriage and divorce records?' arise before an individual begins the search. Would this be in the state's courts? County clerk, recorder? Or would I go to the the state's health department? Where would I find criminal records? Is this considered public information anyone can view? What is required to obtain this type of information and are the guidelines the same for employers as they are for private individuals or by the person themselves? These answers, although in some venues are similar in many ways, can also greatly vary from state to state, counties and by other local governments. Even when the same guidelines are shared by different agencies, their budgets and number of requests they received are also a factor in where their services are found. An example of this is with larger departments and/or a high volume of requests will have greater access through the web. A functional user friendly portal to public records is helpful where an individual is not certain where to look or begin the search. Where are the best places and easiest ways to obtain information are amongst the main focus and goal. Visitors are also provided a forum in which questions can be asked and answers can be viewed being helpful in specific challenges posed by other users.

by adam ater
A:The Harrison county sheriffs department has a corrections unit that offers information regarding their jail, but does not contain an online inmate search. If the inmate is now in the custody of the state department of corrections, a free inmate search is available, but photos are not included. Arrest reports are considered public information, but photos/mug-shots may not necessarily be also.

How do I find out if someone used my identity and now has charges on my background? (New Albany IN)
by Tiffany
A:By ordering a background check on yourself, you can see the erroneous information about you. Since the criminal record check is on yourself, there's no privacy issue to deal with, so you will be able to obtain the report with little difficulty. The Indiana State Police offers an online search service for public use. You can view only felonies and class A misdemeanor arrests within the state of Indiana according to their site. It costs $15 and there is a demo that shows you the process and report.

Q: Why does the Indiana State Police only limited criminal history searches, does the government provide background checks in different forms?
by calvin
A:A limited criminal history search is a far from a comprehensive background check that many private citizens look for. However this search may very well be worth requesting as it is from the state's law enforcement agency. The ISP's search only includes felonies and class A misdemeanor arrests, but when looking to obtain more information such as driving records, marriages, judgments and liens, accessing the individual departments sites can provide the data as well as official certificates. Here's an example if you're looking for driver's records http://www.in.gov/ai/appfiles/bmv-license-search/

by jodi
A:Depending on where the arrest occurred, the department that made the arrest can have a jail roster online within their website. It can have a different title such as inmate list, custody list and others. If the offender you'd like to find is in the state correctional system, you can try IDOC, which is Indiana Department of Corrections, this is a look up of their offenders that can be viewed online anytime http://www.in.gov/idoc/2837.htm The same goes for the federal system, if the person is in custody of a federal law enforcement agency, the search will have to be at that level. Here's a good place to look for what you need with the feds http://www.bop.gov/
