Even though some information contained in police records are now available to the public, all of the data may not be released. The Freedom of Information Act made it possible to search for a person’s background and other vital records, but every state has its own privacy laws which prevent certain information from being released to the public. For example, for obvious reasons, the states won’t release some juvenile crime information because of the ages of the perpetrators. Maine police records can be searched if you provide some basic information such as the full name and date of birth of the person in question. If the record is found, you’ll see a copy of the record that reveals conviction and charges if less than one year old. The accuracy of the report depends on the accuracy of the data you submit. For example, if you don’t know the person’s true birth date, you may see a record for someone with the same name but isn’t the person’s record you needed. You may need to wait up to two weeks for a response if the state has to resort to a manual search. Fees for a Maine police record search vary from $21 to $31, and if you want the document notarized, add another $10 to the fee.
