Records on approximately 10 million persons. Results generally include the defendant's name, date-of-birth, race, sex, case number, county of disposition, offense date, offense description, disposition, disposition date, and sentence. Records are updated monthly.

NOTE: Some records in the Virginia criminal background check database do NOT contain the date-of-birth of the defendant, so some records (mostly traffic offenses and low level misdemeanor records) may be matched by name only. Because the Virginia database contains records on more than 10 MILLION persons, name-only matches can not be returned. To help us narrow down the number of possible matching records, it is highly recommended that you provide the subject's verified middle name or initial when ordering if at all possible.
