Rhode Island Criminal Records

Unlike other US States, Rhode Island criminal records are available from the Rhode Island Judiciary, which maintains a database of all criminal reports, documents and records from courts and law enforcement agencies in the State. Background checks or criminal records are also available for those who wish to get hold of such reports from the Court although one is restricted to name-based search only. The State restricts full access to criminal reports to authorized entities and law enforcement agencies.

To conduct a criminal check or access adult criminal records, requesters should visit the Judiciary website and conduct a search of the offender of which they want to obtain records. Do note that the records or information available are for informational purposes only and should not be used as a legal document or for any other purposes.
