State Criminal Records Repository
State repositories include abbreviated conviction and/or arrest information that is obtained from state and county agencies. There are certain States that do not maintain a Repository. The benefits of this statewide search are: convenience, coverage and cost because it is not necessary to search every county in which an individual may have lived or worked or been associated.
However, frequently the data has not been uploaded or updated to the repository by the county thus an up-to-date situation is not available. Conduct a County Criminal Check is the only reliable solution.
