When it comes to accessing Mississippi arrest records, be prepared for much red tape and a real challenge in finding the record(s) you’re searching for. The arrest records for Mississippi are currently kept at the Criminal Information Center, a subsidiary of the Bureau of Investigation of the Mississippi DPS. The main function of the department is to provide background checks to other government agencies – but, if you’re an individual looking for an arrest record, it may become a challenge. If you’re a third party searching for a record, you must have a consent form releasing the record. You can check on ways to obtain Mississippi arrest records by contacting the following department:
Mississippi State Department of Health
Criminal History Record Checks and Depository
P.O. Box 1700

Phone: (601) 364-1101
Although you may be able to access the Mississippi database for criminal background checks, you’ll likely receive a minimal amount of information on the person you’re searching for. Also, Mississippi databases can only search the state’s criminal records – not a cross-state reference. You’ll need to enter as much data as you have about the person in question. For example, full name, address, sex, date of birth and social security number, if available. Any and all information you can provide helps the search go smoother and faster and you’ll be more assured of getting the correct information for that person.
Online, fee-based search sites are also available on the Internet. This type of search gives you a broader search base than going through the state and you’ll receive a full report containing information that may not be available through a state-based search. All you have to do is choose a reputable, online search service that charges a reasonable fee to look up information on the person in question. You’ll receive a concise and accurate report sent directly to your computer and you can read it in the privacy of your home or office. Professionals will provide easy to read information, whereas the report you may get from the state could be inaccurate or not up to date.
Crime is rampant in today’s world, and background checks are a necessity if you want to protect your home, loved ones, business – and yourself from predators. You may have a prospective employee, new love interest, renter or neighbor who appears to be honest and trustworthy, but you can never know for sure until you check that person’s background. It’s better to pay a small fee and be sure than to have a mountain of regrets later. Professionals use online, fee-based services on a regular basis for background checks to help them with a law case or other information that will help determine a person’s trustworthiness. All you have to do is enter a minimal amount of information and the search service will take over from there. Their vast databases and powerful search engines do their jobs and they have the information you requested usually in a matter of minutes.
