However, it is still possible to save time by searching for information on the Internet. The search box that was added to this page displays comprehensive reports containing a person’s criminal history including jail records and arrest warrants issued against him. You can be 100% sure that these reports are updated regularly and the details they contain are accurate. What is more, the search process does not reveal your identity to any third party whatsoever.
