  • What is a Capias?
    A "Capias" is issued by a judge, similar to a warrant when a defendant fails to comply with a court order, and law enforcement is tasked with taking the person into custody. However, a capias does not always require the individual to be taken into custody; many results in the law enforcement officer having to re-cite with a new court date. Capias warrants, also called bench warrants, can originate from civil courts, family cases, failure to pay a fine, or an appearance before the judge or magistrate. Capias generally contains the name or physical description of the defendant, states the offense the perpetrator is accused of, provides information about when the accused committed the crime, and includes the signature of the individual making the affidavit.

  • How do I find the Owner/Manager of the Boost Mobile Business at 6236 Michigan Ave?
    The state of Michigan's corporation's division has a free public business entity search. I was able to pull up companies by name, not by address. However, you can view a list of companies, LLCs, and others. You can see the details about the entities, including the address. The entities can be searched by name, keyword, or identification number. Since the search is free, you can try different keywords to check that database thoroughly. You will need to get all names associated with the business as possible. Use the SERPs to view the underlying name of the business; you can do that with the parent company's site. The parent company search will show the business's full name, for example, when the owner's name is included in the business name. Once you have the full name, the keyword search can show more results to find the owner's name. (Staff)
  • Where can I find the meaning of "clearance rate", in the criminal justice system?
    The "Clearance Rate" or more precisely, "Homicide Clearance Rate" in criminal justice terms, means the rate or percentage of charges brought in homicide cases. Police make reports of incidents; these reports, in turn, are used for statistics. The number of charges filed is compared to the reports (of homicide in this instance), and the percentage is calculated. Police reports are the source of many crime statistics. (Staff)
  • Where can I find out what is a public information officer?
    A public information officer generally represents a particular government agency in releasing events, data, records, and so forth deemed open to the public. You can sometimes see them on television releasing information to news reporters on behalf of a police department regarding specific events. It can also be a staff member in charge of government data records and documentation. Many types of information are deemed government data open to the public. The latest back-and-forth battles have been around government employee emails. Other issues, such as what should be released, are also a matter of debate; an example is companies that deal with government entities and even act on their behalf. If ATT and the government have a deal, does the public have a right to have the details released under the freedom information act? (Staff)
  • Where can I find access to local background checks and their advantages?
    A background check is a general description of looking into a person's history and records but is not specific enough to tell what is included. Some background checks can go as far as verifying education history, such as college degrees, certifications, and so on, in addition to criminal checks. Most records searched are generally statewide, whether a simple address searches for driving history or others provided by state agencies. Criminal records, however, can be found through various levels of government, which means they can be accessed locally. Criminal records on a local level can be sought from county sheriffs or police departments, providing various types of reports from incidents to arrests and persons in custody. (Staff)
