General Information On New Jersey Criminal Records
In the state of New Jersey, criminal records are maintained as a way of helping law enforcement to know what actions individuals have taken in the past of an illegal nature. These records are created at the time of an individual's arrest. The information contained in them is detailed, often including details about a person's criminal actions, the charges filed, the level of charge and the outcome of the conviction. The type of sentencing as well as any other important information is contained here. A criminal record like this follows the individual through life for any actions committed within the state.
Gathering information from New Jersey criminal records can prove to be difficult in some situations. However, since the state is an open records state, this means that most criminal records are available to the general public or private businesses for gathering and use. However, it is possible individuals will need to show reason for gathering this information. Moreover, in some cases, a waiver is necessary. For example, if an employer wishes to conduct a full background check on an individual, the employer must request that the prospective employee sign a waiver providing permission for this. This information is then submitted to the reporting agency.
In the state of New Jersey, the State Bureau of Identification manages and overseas access to the database containing criminal records. This is a division of the New Jersey State Policy Department, or NJSP. The agency receives these records from a local level, usually a city or county office or local law enforcement agency.

Any agency within the state authorized to access this information (including law enforcement) can use the computerized system to gather it.
