Criminal Records are usually the criminal history records that are kept by law enforcement organizations or courts. There are criminal record databases in federal, state and county courts. Some criminal record databases are available online for certain dates. There are also other services who help you get criminal background checks either per state, per county or provide a nationwide criminal histroy. However, note that when these services provide you with nationwide criminal history report it could still be missing the states that either do no legally provide the information or do not have databases available for research. In most cases you can get a criminal record history that shows, convictions, arrests, with dates and judgements.
Conduct a thorough criminal background check by searching criminal records, court records, find criminal history, check prison, jail inmate records, and department of corrections records. Also check professional licenses and other credentials.
