In the state of Colorado, public records are very accessible by the public. This is why the state is known as an open records state. Any documentation or information about Colorado arrest records, as well as any records regarding an individual’s criminal history is made available by the state to the general public. For you to acquire such records, you can either directly contact the Colorado Bureau of Investigation offices by phone, or you can go to their official website and download the online request form.
The details that are found in a standard background search are regarded as public domain, or public record; thus, making it accessible by anyone, according to state and federal laws. For a small processing fee, anyone can obtain copies or view documents pertaining to a particular individual’s criminal history from the Colorado Bureau of Investigation, or CBI, which is the agency responsible for storing and maintaining such public records.
When you think about the two methods in acquiring criminal records free to public, the better choice for anyone nowadays would be the online option, especially for those who may not have the luxury of time to wait several days for the processing to complete. Opting for the online method means you will have to visit the Colorado Bureau of Investigation’s official website, which has a Criminal History Check System that ensures a more efficient and more comprehensive research result.
Once you are on the Colorado arrest records Criminal History Check System page, you can click on the “Individual Search” link or if you wish to setup a user account, click on the “Account User” link, which will direct you to an account registration page. However, registering an account is only needed if you are planning on doing a background search on multiple individuals, but if you are only focusing on one subject, there is no need to create an account. You can go directly to the individual search page.
Once you are on the “Individual Search” page, click on the link that says “Conduct an individual inquiry without setting up an account”. This link will then take you to a page where you will have to input certain details about the individual you are doing a background check on. Take note of the fields that are marked with an asterisk. The first and last name of the subject, the date of birth, and your reason for conducting the search, these are required fields, which means that you have to fill them in order to get the results that you need. Once you are done, all you have to do is click “continue”, located at the bottom of the form.
