The department of public safety allows for criminal record checks. If the arrest is recent, there are police logs online which show their detainees. One place many don’t check which doesn’t cost anything is the state of Vermont’s department of corrections. If there was a conviction and sentenced in Vermont, this search can help, which also means there are court records with more information. The Vermont Judiciary offers a criminal record check for a fee, it can be requested with an online form, but it must be turned in at the court’s public service counter or by mail only.
