  • Can I request a copy of my Navy Criminal Investigative Service report before going in and purchasing a firearm in Colorado?
    Federal searches are the central depository of criminal history records, which depend on all law enforcement agencies participating. This includes state, county, and national level records altogether. You can request an FBI search on yourself before going. (Staff)
  • Where can I find in Colorado if the firearm background checks are the same as regular employment background checks?
    Although the service mainly relies on the firm requesting it, they're primarily statewide instead of nationwide. There are guidelines and a wait time for background checks, so some entities opt to use private sources. The expense is a little higher, but many companies feel it is worth it. The objectives are the same, but not all searches are the same. The background check report may not contain all the information from the criminal case. When deciding between a statewide or a national background check, a people finders search can initially tell you if the individual you're requesting a review on has lived in other places outside the state. A nationwide search does not necessarily cost more, but there are restrictions where some states have better open records laws. The National Instant Criminal Background Check System, NICS, is the search performed for firearm purchases. The FBI offers more than one background check. The pre-employment check is based on fingerprints, while the firearms check is based on an individual's identification information. The person can only request the pre-employment check on the report is based. Simply put, you can only perform a check on yourself. (Staff)
  • Where can I find, in Colorado, access to a list of convicted felons?
    You can see a list of inmates across Colorado by going to the state's department of corrections. You will be able to see a photo of the inmate, where the condition they're being held, sentence information, county, and case number. There's also parole information on eligibility and hearing, mandatory release, and estimated discharge dates. The case number does not provide additional specifics other than the number itself! You can use the case number for a criminal case and other information to search the courthouse. The case file can have more data than what the DOC is showing. Depending on the court's venue, the services you need to get the data can be accessed online. (Staff)
  • Where do I find, in Colorado, access to arrest records online?
    Specifically, which records or types of records? Information can be found in many different places on the net, not all in the same place. Also, the specific area where the information is being held can make it easier or more challenging to find and obtain. All records are not available; only data deemed under the law is to be public. (Staff)
  • Where can I find in Colorado who owns a residential property?
    Which county is the property in? If it's in one of the larger counties, take Denver, for example, you're in luck since the property search is free, showing the name and value of the property online. For this county, it's called the "Property Taxation and Assessment System." In El Paso, it's different; it just says "Public Record Real Estate Property Search." Look for the assessor's office services if you're not having any luck finding it with a general search. (Staff)
  • How do I check in Colorado for bankruptcy records?
    There is a free search above under Colorado Free Court Records Search. That can check bankruptcy information by keyword. You can look up the bankruptcy by name/keyword or date and location. Use the keyword to look up party names, filing type case numbers, and others (you can see the fields searched if you click on any of the cases below the boxes). The keyword search shouldn't be relied on for more than the party names and maybe case numbers, as the other information can be entered inadequately by the courts or any origin. The dates are the time of publishing, not the filing or recording. If you need more, you can see where to get them; the source is at the bottom of the results with a link. (Staff)
