The free records are under sections where it is mentioned. There are both free searches as well as services that provide them for a fee if you can't find them on your own. To view free records, scroll down to the "Ohio Free Court Records Search" or click on "Court Records" using the tab on top of the page (also on a menu to the right), if you're on mobile, it is the first part of the page. Once you click or scroll to court records, you will see a search box where you enter party names and date range if you need to narrow the search (helpful for common party names). You can view bankruptcy case information to criminal court records and others. Under "Ohio Free Public Records Directory", there is a list of free databases available from various public agencies. Some, such as prison and inmate searches, are easy to find, the link takes you directly to the search page and all you need to do is type in the name. With others, such as court records, you will need to look and find where the databases are. The same goes with local searches, you will need to choose the county or city, then from there you can access the area's law enforcement and their recent arrests, crash reports and others.
