If you’re trying to find out if someone you know has been arrested, it may seem quite difficult. While you may be tempted to simply ask “Have you been arrested?” many people would try not to give an honest answer to that question. It can be embarrassing to be asked, and it’s often best not to create awkward situations if you can avoid it. So the question is; can you use the Internet to find out if someone has been arrested?
The answer? Very, very easily …
Seriously. Technically, all you need is the full name of the person you’re investigating, as well as the state in which you think they might have been arrested.
Use an online public records database
That … doesn’t sound very interesting. In fact, it sounds a bit boring. But I promise, this is the easiest and fastest way to find out if someone has been arrested.
What is an online public records database?
An online public records database is just a tool that allows you to access public records over the Internet. These public records include items like criminal records, active arrest warrants, and arrest records.
So how can I use an online public records database?
Actually it is very simple. Since we are looking for arrest records, we will use SpyFly. Navigate to their website and you will find a search bar. Enter the first and last name of the person you are investigating, and select the state in which you think they may have been arrested, and SpyFly will do its magic. In a few moments, the arrest records will begin to appear, and you can browse through them.
A great advantage of SpyFly is the intelligence in its design. If you’re trying to find someone with a common name (i.e. John Harper), you don’t have to worry. SpyFly attaches police photos to arrest records, letting you know at a glance if you’re looking at the correct arrest record.
Another fantastic feature of SpyFly is its confidentiality. Since this type of investigation is generally frowned upon, it is best to avoid alerting others to your investigation. Fortunately, SpyFly does not notify anyone that a search has been performed. Additionally, SpyFly does not disclose your personal information to anyone, allowing you to remain comfortably anonymous.
SpyFly provides consumers affordable, immediate access to public record information. Federal laws prohibit businesses from using SpyFly’s service to make decisions about employment, insurance, consumer credit, tenant screening, or for any other purpose subject to the Fair Credit Reporting Act, 15 USC 1681 et seq.
