  • Q: What is a Capias? (Detroit, MI)
    By Tegan
    Mar 28, 2017

    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 that the individual be taken into custody, many result in the law enforcement officer to re-cite with a new court date. Capias warrants, also referred to as bench warrants can originate from civil courts, family cases, failure to pay a fine or an appearance before the judge or magistrate. Capias generally contain the name or physical description of the defendant, state the offense the perpetrator is accused of, information about when the accused committed the offense and include the signature of the individual making the affidavit.

  • Q: Who is the Owner/Manager of the Boost Mobile Business at 6236 Michigan Ave 48210 (Detroit, MI)
    By JD
    Jun 21, 2016

    The state of Michigan's corporations division has a free public business entity search. I was able to pull up companies by name, not by address, however, you will be able to view a list of companies, llc's and others. From the list 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 thoroughly check that database. You will need to get all names associated to 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 full name of the business, 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.

  • Q: What does “clearance rate” mean in the criminal justice system? (Detroit, MI)
    By julie
    May 01, 2015

    The “Clearance Rate” or more precisely “Homicide Clearance Rate” in the 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 are compared to the reports (of homicide in this instance) and the percentage is calculated. Police reports are the source of many crime statistics.

    A public information officer is generally a representative a particular government agency in releasing events, data, records and so forth that are deemed open to the public. You can sometimes see them on television releasing information to news reporters on the behalf of a police department in regard to certain events. It can also be a staff member in charge of records, documentation of government data. There are many types information deemed as 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 is also a matter of debate, an example of this are 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.

  • Q: What are local background checks in Michigan, their advantages and where to request them? (Detroit, MI)
    By patty
    Dec 06, 2012

    Background check is a general description of looking into a person's history and records but is not specific enough to tell what is actually included. Some background checks can go as far as looking to verify 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 search to driving history and others provided by state agencies. Criminal records however can be found through various levels of government which means it 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.
