Finding New Jersey Criminal Records
Are you thinking about checking into New Jersey criminal records? If so, you may find the process a little difficult. For example, there is no public information (like many states) so you need special authorization to request records, and it's a good thing to be aware of the information presented here.

What is a Criminal Background Check?

A criminal records check is used to determine if someone has been arrested for various offenses. For example, some background checks may reveal arrests for:
  • Burglary
  • Theft
  • Assault
  • Robbery drug possession
  • Shoplifting
  • DUI
  • Vandalism
  • Forgery
It's important to know about these things if you plan to hire someone for personal services.

What Info is Available?

Criminal histories are kept by the New Jersey State Police and this info is not made available to the public. For example, you can't check up on someone you know unless you have the proper authorization. Here are the reasons you can request a New Jersey criminal record:
  • Government agencies - includes state and federal agencies that need criminal histories to conduct business.
  • Employers - if you are thinking of hiring someone you may request a background check if it's part of a pre-screening process. This also includes background checks on volunteers.
  • Lawyers - if an attorney needs arrest records for court-related matters, he or she may request them. This includes lawyers in other states and ones working on Federal legal matters.
  • Private detectives - if they need the info to conduct investigations and have the proper license and authorization.
  • You can request your own New Jersey criminal records.
