    There's an inmate incarceration search worth checking if the individual was charged, convicted and sent to prison. Click on "Mississippi Prison and Jail Inmates" link above, and you will land on Mississippi Department of Corrections' search form. You do not need the entire name, just part of the last or first name. The inmate's profile for public view will show an inmates photo, entry date, sentence length/date, tentative release date, description of the inmate and other details.

    Open public record laws are mostly about what others can find out about you. What the public has a right to know, versus individual privacy protection. When a record has personal information, it would not be deemed public to protect the individual's right to privacy or stricken/kept from the record.

    Begin with an address search, also known as a "people finders" search. You'll get a list of addresses, from there you can conduct an address reverse search. You will also be able to see any spouses and relatives connected jointly to the same addresses. Let's take DeSoto County Tax Assessor's website for example, which is an open name search. You can also search under possible spouse's names which can turn up even more information.

    Depends on where the case is, some venues make theirs available to view online, while other do not. The case search above looks up Mississippi court cases, bankruptcies (federal), appellate, district courts... County and lower or Circuit courts have their own searches. Some will have it online making it easy access (such as Adams county), while others do not (such as Claiborne county).

    You can conduct a search of criminal cases filed in circuit courts. Depending on the county, you can conduct the search online freely, similar to the one in Lafayette county court's website. Go to the county webpage in Lafayette for example, you can click on http://lafayettems.com/us/elected-officials/circuit-clerk/ That will take you to the court's official page, you can see the link which will search cases on that page.

    Depends on the county, and how many you need to search. Bankruptcy records are not county, so they will be their own search. You can do a quick check of federal, appellate and bankruptcies dating back to 2014 from this page. Click on court records using the menu to the right and input the names/keywords.

    Arrest records and criminal records are not the same. Criminal records are generally post conviction, while arrests alone do not necessarily mean that the case will result in a conviction. Arrest reports are produced by the arresting department/officer. Arrest reports are requested by the arrestee, attorneys involved in the case such as the prosecutor, public defender or a private practice defense attorney. Law enforcement agencies can request arrest reports also, however, they will generally rely on a report that shows a compilation of arrests in the person’s history, commonly called “RAP sheets” (Record of Arrest and Prosecution). Arrest reports are not that different from incident reports. You can go to that department’s website and request reports online.

    You can look at some of the less traditional or un-official places for information. If you know which prison, you can then look at the local periodicals/papers, also, you can check the name of the institution on serps to see all the places where that particular prison shows up and offers inmate information, such as the periodicals, then you can look up the source closely. Prisons have information posted on their webpages for inmate information and visitation.

    Private and public institutions are not under the same FOIA rules. The same goes for universities, where public schools are more likely to openly provide their internal information. This does not mean that private schools can strictly follow their own rules. Check their administration for policies, most have separate records section.

    The process in which to request arrest reports depend on the department that made the arrest. Individual police departments will tell you how to request different types of police reports on their site or on the phone through their records department.

    Warrants are issued by courts and then given to law enforcement. Some law enforcement sites show a warrants/wanted list for public view. Mostly, it depends on where or in which county the warrant is issued. Both the courts and police/sheriff departments have records divisions with their services listed.

    Criminal record sources are scattered throughout the internet. Inmate searches to court filings, records can be found either on the local level or state. Arrest reports need to be requested from the police department which took the person into custody. Otherwise, the police department has their recent arrests showing with an offender search. For statistical research, crime mapping can give a current view of crimes occurring within a certain area.
