    Depends on where the arrest took place, some departments allow the individual in the report to obtain them without having to pay the regular fee. Most departments have a webpage with instructions on how to get them and if it costs a fee.

    There's a records division in that police department, their webpage says "The staff greets visitors and processes requests for information, such as record checks and copies of reports, and directs inquiries to the appropriate office." There's contact information where people start the process of requesting it.

    How can my sister and I look at her own record for free in Kentucky? She got arrested in Henderson
    By Workhard

    The city of Henderson has their own police department and website which shows you how to get reports. Getting your own reports and someone else’s is different in procedures and accessibility. Some police departments allow a free copy if the arrest report is of your own. The division of records and statistics under court services in Kentucky Court of Justice's website claims that it provides criminal records and reports collected by the state's court system. This can be done online, costs a twenty dollar fee, but, will save you time and work. To look up free records, you can start with the court clerk's site, under services, looking up public records is listed. They can be contacted and see if simply looking up records without copies would cost.

    Try one of the many crime mapping, even with simple serps you’ll be able to find it as Union county is covered, depending where. There are two crimes which show up when you first pull it up, you can change the date and drag the view from one area to another. If it is in Louisville, you’re in luck as their crime data by address and date is reely open to the public. Go to Louisville’s official site, and go to the police webpage, click on the crime information tab on the left and you will see a menu, then click on crime mapping, thereafter click on 'Open Data Portal Crime Data.'. There's also a link to crime mapping which can save you from looking for it online.

    There are three factors to consider: Is it the requestor's own divorce or of someone else? Was the divorce prior to June 1958? It would be archived if before this date. The county/city location is not important as the certificate can be requested from the Kentucky's Vital Statistics office. However, if you need to get court record in one of the state's 71 counties, you will need to know location of the filing.

    Local libraries offer public access to periodicals which contain newsworthy events. Since the incident may not be a widely noteworthy event, smaller papers/publications may still carry that story. Where in Kentucky the incident occurred is important as different libraries have more or less services.

    Background checks when conducted by a service (private company) charge as do any other services. You can conduct your own search by looking for as many free databases as possible. This site helps with a list of the most frequently used sites for free searches. These links are mostly to government sites, which is the originator of a majority of records requested. There’s background information all over the net, you will have to look into them individually. You look up inmate searches, court record searches and property information. Begin with an address search, you will only need the city to start, so there will be plenty of sources which offer this for free.

  • Q: How do I find info on criminal background for free

    By wondering
    Mar 31, 2015

    You need to do a lot of the work on your own. A person’s background information can be found in many different places online or by going to the record keepers’ physical location. Several factors determine how your search is conducted and will result. Public records can come in many bits and pieces of information. With that in mind, you will need to fish out some of the records in parts. Begin with what you already know of the person. A good tip to begin with is to look up all the addresses and notice where traces can be of older records can be found also. It is recommended that you look up all free information first regardless. The county courthouse is a place where many records from bankruptcies, criminal cases and divorces can be found. Some court venues will offer online services, however, these services often carry a fee. A way to get around paying the fees can be by going to the location in person to view files. Once the files are checked out, you can either make copies or just view them and move on to the next record. Public record sites list as many useful free databases as possible, including sites that may not readily appear online, facilitating a more expansive search. Similar to casting a net, the larger the scope of your search is, the more results you will catch. It is normal to start with a small amount of profile information, as the search will pick up more data and expand the scope. An example are maiden names found, which would expand the search to include maiden names. Property records reveal if a spouse is named on the deed. As more information surfaces, the more expansive your search will become. Free databanks can be found scattered over the net. Few examples are inmate searches, which can be of local and state institutions, business filings with the secretary of state, land or real estate ownership searches from Property Valuation Administrator and more.

    Government agencies and its departments will generally have a public information officer. This is a problem that reporters/journalists ten to run into from time to time. A freedom of information act request is filed with the state since it trumps county and cities after other avenues have been exhausted.

  • Q: Where can I go online for FREE background information?

    By doodle
    May 08, 2013

    That is a search in itself, but there are easy ways of doing it. The term 'nothing's free' is also true with public records. Since it costs to record, maintain and provide, fess are imposed to cover those costs. Who else is going to pay for it? However, some records are free by coincidence. Court records are a good example. In some venues, it is easier for the department to put the information/cases online rather than to provide it to each individual requestor and charge, such as court calendars, case information and so forth. The department of corrections has free searches of their inmates in custody, released or awaiting release. Some counties will provide property information with a public access to their recorded documents databases. With enough research, free records can be found. It can be made easier by using a public record site that will list as many free sources found. Once again, not all the records are going to be free.

    If you're looking into county jails, many of the sheriff's department websites include an inmate search. If this occurred in Boone county, the sheriffs website provides a list of current and released inmates. Information of the person in custody includes booking number, arrest date, arresting agency, scheduled release date if any, description of the offender, cases, charges, case number and more.
