Arrest Records

Learn legal outcomes – discover if someone you trust has been in the system.

Whether or not they actually faced charges—or perhaps had those charges dropped at some point—you can still find out if someone was ever placed under arrest. We have access to the arrest records for most adults in the U.S., so you can get a clear and quick verdict on a person’s criminal history.


Get the full story – find out if someone you know has a history with the law.

Even smaller crimes like petty theft, vandalism, or drug possession can be major red flags. The PeopleFinders database gives you detailed info about anyone's trouble with the law, no matter how minor. A little extra knowledge now could save you big-time headaches in the future.


Find the details – see if a person has a background they didn't tell you about.

Felonies are our most serious crimes, and often felons are not honest about their pasts. With PeopleFinders, you can find felony records for any adult in the U.S. With our detailed criminal history records, you'll know for sure who's in your life and who you can really trust.

Sex Offenders

Know who's out there – look up the people around you for your family's safety.

Sex offenders must register with various national and state registries. But it's not always clear when you or a loved one come into contact with an offender. With our sex offender database, you can make sure you, your family, and your friends are safe no matter where you go.
