Criminal Record Checks
Don't be Fooled! In today's World of instant communication and information at our fingertips, the claim that many websites assert is that they can provide instant Criminal Background Checks. This claim is false! It's not that they want to provide false and incomplete information, it's simply that not all criminal records are computerized. In fact, Federal Criminal cases are only available on-line since 2005. Anything prior to 2005 must be searched in person by a Licensed Private Investigator at the Federal Courthouse.
There are, however, numerous reliable databases that provide information about a person's Criminal History. These databases are not available to the general public. They are proprietary in nature and are utilized by Law Enforcement agencies, Insurance companies and Private Investigators to discover a person's true criminal history. But sometimes, even that is not enough. Some jurisdictions, such as the Las Vegas Municipal Court have not entered any of their Court Cases into an accessible computerized system. To get a complete picture of someone's criminal history requires an investigator to travel to the Courthouse and conduct research.
Another problem on simply relying on these inaccurate Instant Background sites is that the information provided does not reflect the true nature of the criminal offense. For example, in many instances a criminal charge of Prostitution may be Pled down to a Trespassing charge or a DUI case may be Pled down to a Reckless Driving case. A search of the databases will only reflect the criminal charge that a person was actually convicted of, not what they were originally charged with. Again, it takes a licensed Private Investigator to conduct on-site research at the Courthouse to glean a true picture of someone's criminal history.
Sin City Private Investigators has access to the databases which provide accurate information concerning a person's Criminal History. Additionally, we review the Search Results to ensure that the information is relative and pertains to the individual we are researching. However, oftentimes we also need to travel to the Courthouse to either verify this information or to conduct the research necessary to provide our clients with accurate and complete information. If you need to know the whole truth concerning someone's Criminal History, you need to hire Sin City Private Investigators. For a free consultation, Call 1-833-746-2874.
