How to Find Michigan Arrest Records and Warrants
Do you need to carry out a criminal records search? This article will assist you in finding Michigan arrest records, warrants and court dockets so that you can check the background of people close to you, for example an employee, a person you have recently started dating or even the nanny you plan to hire for your little kids.
The best sources to trace Michigan arrest records
Conviction and arrest records from all of MI law enforcement agencies are delivered to the Criminal Justice Information Center (CJIC) supervised by the State Police. This database is accessible to the public from any device connected to the Internet.
What you have to do to find Michigan criminal records is visit the ICHAT
(Internet Criminal History Access Tool), sign up, pay a $10 fee via credit card and then conduct your search based on a person's full name and birth date. You will be shown convictions and arrests longer than 93 days from all over the state.
The data does not include minor misdemeanor offenses, federal and juvenile records and cases that ended with no convictions. For more explanations on how to use this service, go here
Searching for Michigan warrants and running a background check on a local level
The best way to perform a warrant search is to rely on local sources. The county sheriff can tell you if the person you are checking is wanted for a crime. In some cases you will have to turn to the court. For example, information on Genesee County warrants can be obtained from the Criminal Division of the District Court
The sheriff is also the primary source for information on people incarcerated for minor offenses. You will be required to visit his office and conduct your investigation assisted by the deputies. Some sheriffs have a jail roster on their website. For example, you can find Wayne County arrest records here
How to find Michigan court records
MI court records should also be searched in the relevant county. Go to the District Court to look for misdemeanor cases and to the Circuit Court to find more serious felony cases. A FOIA request to view public documents may be required. Some courts will help you garner information online. For instance, Wayne County court records (criminal and civil) can be searched using the electronic inquiry tool
offered by the County Clerk.
