Vermont Criminal Records

Here are two different ways to do your own criminal records search or do a background check in Vermont.  To find the free resources, scroll down the page.  If an entry says “Pay Site,” that means the agency asks that you pay for your search.

1) Free searches - listed below. Be advised: Vermont does not make District Court case records, which include all criminal court records, available online. You may use the free resource below to check criminal calendars for upcoming court dates of active criminal cases. Also below are databases for Vermont Department of Corrections inmates, federal inmates, statewide registered offenders, and federal criminal court records (through the inexpensive PACER system).

2) Vermont Criminal Information Center.  Another option is to use the “Criminal Histories” resource below to find information on how to order a criminal record check from the Vermont Criminal Information Center (VCIC). Searches are $30 each and can be ordered and received instantly online. If you need a background check with notary seals, or a fingerprint search, VCIC offers those options. The turnaround time is longer for those mailed requests (approximately 5-7 business days). This is the ONLY service that provides disposed criminal court case information in Vermont. As VCIC does not include federal records, we also recommend a search of federal inmates and federal court records (as described in option 1 above).


Beyond Vermont: Search Systems State, National, and International Criminal Records. Criminals don't stop at state borders.  Expand your search with our Search Systems Premium criminal record database - the largest available to the public online containing over 450 million criminal records in all states.  Includes over 70 national and international terrorist, debarred persons, and most wanted databases.  The cost per search is $14.95 and results are immediate. See Inside Edition's report on YouTube.

BE ADVISED - A nationwide Premium search will only include two databases from Vermont - their Department of Corrections current inmate records; and registered offender records.
