1) Wisconsin Warrants and Most Wanted Directory. Search for criminal wants and warrants in Wisconsin.
2) Free searches - listed below. Wisconsin provides free access to a number of good criminal record databases. We recommend starting with the resource below titled “Circuit Court Criminal Case Search” to check statewide or by county for criminal court cases. Also available below are Department of Corrections inmates; statewide registered offenders; federal inmates; federal criminal court records (through the inexpensive PACER system); and arrest, inmate, police report, and criminal court record databases from available cities and counties.
3) Wisconsin Crime Information Bureau. Click on the resource below titled “Criminal Histories – CIB” and order a criminal record search of arrests and convictions from 1971 to present from the Wisconsin Crime Information Bureau. This system is designed to allow customers to check their own records, or check the records of applicants (if you are an employer). Searches can be ordered online or by mail. Results are not immediate in either case. Cost is $7 per general search ordered online, or $10 for a daycare or caregiver background check. For mail or fax requests, the cost is $12. The CIB search does not include federal records, so we recommend also doing a federal inmate search and a PACER federal court record search. Both types are outlined in option 1 above.
4) 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 400 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.
Our Wisconsin records include statewide felony and misdemeanor convictions; Department of Corrections inmate records; statewide registered offenders; and Menominee Indian Tribe registered offenders. A search of Wisconsin records only is $9.95, immediate results.
