- The GBI's official inquiry tool allows you to perform a Georgia offender search. You need the name and date of birth of the person in question as well as a credit card to pay the $15 search fee.
- Alternatively, you can search the GA Department of Corrections online database. Complete the criminal record check by entering the name of the subject, his or her ID or case number.
