1) Free searches - listed below. Michigan provides free access to a variety of criminal records. We suggest you start with the resources below for available county databases for criminal court records, court calendars, and inmates. 17 counties provide criminal court records online. You can also use the resources below to check Department of Corrections inmates, federal inmates, Court of Appeals dockets, statewide registered offenders, and federal criminal court records (through the inexpensive PACER system).
2) Michigan Department of State Police. Another option is to use the resource titled “Michigan Criminal Histories” below for information from the Michigan Department of State Police (MSP) on how to obtain a criminal history check. They require registration and a $10 fee. The database is updated daily with felony, misdemeanor and local ordinance violation information as reported to the state repository by law enforcement agencies, prosecutors, and courts in all 83 Michigan counties. This does not include federal records, so we recommend a PACER search, as well as a search of federal inmates.
