Trick or Treating: Court Records and Your Community

Written by October 2, 2013

Good Neighbor Day has come and gone, but that doesn’t mean we should now forget about our community and those around us. With Halloween and the holiday season approaching, it’s important that we ensure that our children are safe and that our surroundings consist of superheroes rather than ghosts and goblins. With the power of information, especially when we’re able to access it at lightning fast speed, we can be two steps ahead of the game and guide our children in the right direction!

Our court record searches can be a very useful tool to help you in your quest for added peace of mind this Halloween. Though these searches are lesser known than our regular search types (name, phone, email, username, and address), we have a database of more than 600 million court records, from 1400 courthouses across the United States.

Court records include police reports, information on sex offenders, drug and alcohol charges, robberies, and other offenses.  Individual court reports may feature the description of an offense, the date of an offense, the disposition date, the sentencing information, filing date, case number, and more.

Be sure to look up any of the neighbors you feel uneasy about before you map out your trick or treating route this year. Continue to make your community a better place and get to know your surroundings all year long!
