1) Free searches - listed below. Texas does not provide a database to search all criminal records statewide for free. However, you can select a county from the resources below and conduct one free search per day through the idocket.com service. Additional searches require a paid subscription. In the “Featured Public Records” area below, you may search Texas Department of Criminal Justice inmate & parolee databases, federal inmate databases, and statewide registered offenders. You can also search for federal criminal records with the PACER U.S. District Court system (requires registration and a small fee). Also on this page are county and local resources for inmates, criminal court records, dockets, and arrests. If your subject has resided in any of those regions, consider checking those databases.
2) Texas Department of Public Safety. Another option is to use the link below to the TX Dept of Public Safety and order a criminal history check, which includes arrests, prosecutions and the disposition of the case for persons arrested for Class B misdemeanor or greater violation of Texas criminal statutes. The DPS system requires registration and search fees. This does not include U.S. Federal Records, so we recommend a PACER search as well as a search of the federal Bureau of Prisons.
3) Search Systems State, National, and International Criminal Records. Criminals don't stop at state borders.
