    You can check filings by using the search for underneath [West Virginia Free Court Records Search] for federal cases. For lower circuit courts, you'll need to check with that particular county or court of jurisdiction. The searches may not even be online and you may required to go to the physical location's records department.

    You can find arrests and police activity in various department logs as well as through periodicals such as news reports that are published regularly. Depending on the county or city, you can also view persons in custody. The West Virginia regional jail and correctional facility authority has a web page which provides pubic searches for inmates and daily incarcerations. These searches also include mug shots of people that are being held in custody.

    You can either check court records in the county (if you know the county), or run a background check and look up the state at once. Depending on how thorough you want to be, you can even go to the court house in person and look at the entire case file. Criminal case filings are public records and open for inspection by anyone other than a few exceptions such as if it was sealed by the courts.

    You can try the county clerk's office directly, if it is archived, they can tell you where their archives are sent and kept. The clerk's webpages only mention providing and recording documents, but didn't see it written anywhere how far back the records go.

    Check the department's arrest log, can't say without knowing the county. The WV regional jail and authority publishes arrests, some pretrial and others post conviction. You will not see charges, but you will be able to get the case number and location of the facility. The information includes whether the person in custody is a pretrial felon or misdemeanor.

    Begin with the bureau of labor statistics, they cover all state's non-farm payroll data detailed for all states. You can see earnings by industry, demographics, occupation and few other parameters. There is a webpage " Occupational Employment Statistics" it is an open view chart which you can sort by salary.

    You can begin by seeing which criminal records you can get on your own first before using the WV state police’s check, or other services that will do the search for you. For some criminal records, doing your own search can turn out to provide more information, such as getting an entire case file from criminal courts, requesting full police arrest reports and individuals still in custody or released from a facility. There are procedures and policies imposed by police departments and courts to provide even public records. Individual departments can also charge a fee, although relatively low, to provide public records. Is your search specific to a county? Few counties? Or the entire state of West Virginia? Many records are held by individual local departments, therefore an address search is a good starting point. However, that should not limit the search as people get arrested in various areas that would not appear in address searches. Records can either provide information that you are originally looking for, or lead to more. Remember that you are conducting your own search and there will be work going from one department/records office to another.
