Although the crime rate in the United States has steadily declined over the past few years, the presence of crime had made many people serious about who to trust. This is especially true in the field of business where business owners struggle everyday to make a living, but at the same time, could not afford to be at their place of business every waking hour of the day. This is necessary when you are running a check on another person. This is where Georgia Arrest Records come in.
Arrest records contain not only personal information, such as name and date of birth of the person to whom the records pertain to, but also arrest records, final judicial disposition of any case that involved the person to whom the records pertain to, and incarceration records, if there are any. These records are usually complete, unless for specific reasons, the person to whom these records pertain to had their records expunged.
Under Georgia law, these records are considered to belong to public records, and as such, is supposed to be available to the public. At the forefront of the fight of the county against crime is the Sheriff’s Office. As the frontline of law enforcement within Delkalb County, the Sheriff and his deputies have the responsibility of not only enforcing the law but also delivering warrants and taking people into custody. Their headquarters have records of every arrest they had ever made, but to start a search with the Sheriff would require the searcher to be actually there. This is not an efficient method given the distance and the fact that the records might not be readily available because it is buried underneath other records. Despite this, the sheriff’s office is the only one that could provide a certified copy of arrest records.
The more efficient method would be to take the search online using government websites that provide this information. Under Georgia law, electronic copies of a person’s arrest records are to be made available to the public even without the consent of the person to whom the records pertain to. The central repository of these records is the Georgia Crime Information Center, and in pursuit of this, the Center operates an online search database. It must be noted that this database, while instantaneous in their results and complete, do require a fee of fifteen dollars to use. This fee is to be paid for every search even if the search turns up empty.
Another website operated by the government is the online sex offenders registry. This database is almost the same as the one operated by the Crime Information Center with the difference that while this database is free to use, it is limited in scope to sex offenders only.
Perhaps the most efficient method of searching for online records would be to take the search online using specialized online database. These databases are everywhere in the World Wide Web and most of them are free to use. In addition to the fact that they are also easier to use, these databases often provide information limited not only to arrest records but also other vital records. In addition, these databases do not require the searcher to leave the comforts of their own home or even the comforts of the chair where they are seated.
