Need to do a background check? The Missouri State Highway Patrol is making it a lot easier on you.
The state police last week launched a new criminal history information website, the Missouri Automated Criminal History Site.
The new site allows online access to name-based background checks involving all Missouri open records, records of convictions and sex offender registry data. (That doesn’t include warrant information, closed records, or criminal information from other state or federal agencies.) It appears to be similar to Case.net, but more comprehensive.
Private individuals, public and private businesses, state agencies and other entities can access the site for a fee of $10 per name-based inquiry, which requires a first and last name and either a date of birth or a social security number. You must create an account with the site for billing purposes; the account will allow you multiple searches and 30-day online storage of the results.
Go here to access the site. There’s also plenty of helpful information there about how it works.
