Like many other states in the US, Michigan allows public access to arrests, warrants, and criminal records. These records can also be used to search for active warrants issued in one?s name. It is vital for citizens to understand this, and allowing them access to this information enables them to set their records straight.

Also, it helps them in identifying such criminals hiding around them that are wanted by the law. A particular help this does for citizens is that it allows them to check records of any work colleagues or neighbors. They can use this information to know if there are any wanted law offenders around.
According to the Michigan State Police, the criminal history database can be seen by anybody. However, that comes at a cost. Using a Master or Visa card, one can make any search they like for $10.00 per search. This is done on the ICHAT or Internet Criminal History Tool. It is an application that contains the main repository. This is provided by the Crime Justice Information Center of Michigan State.
To search any record on ICHAT, one needs to enter full name and date of birth of the person they are looking for. The results will show the bio and criminal details of the searched entity. This is the bare minimum. Other details like aliases, nicknames and maiden names are of great help and yield results with more accuracy.
It is a daily updated database. All information about law breaking, misdemeanors and felony are uploaded to it. It is provided records from all the 83 courts of the state. Not just those, all agencies and prosecutors furnish their daily records to the ICHAT. This allows for a central collection of all records. Records of all cases initiated, warrants issued, or closed are available. The data is also fairly updated and helps generate accurate search results.
Though there are charges for searching, some are exempted. There are no charges if you are searching on behalf of a nonprofit organization, or are one yourself. In those cases, the charges are waived off.
Each search is responded separately and includes physical description as well as a list of cases the offender is involved in.
Only the records of the state of Michigan will be displayed. Any records of the person searched that consist of criminal activity in other states will not be displayed. Any federal record of criminal activity or warrants issued will not be available. It must still concern you if you find no records against a person. It is likely that there is no record from a state court or agency about that person. Still, a federal offence may have been committed or any warrant from other state(s) may have been issued.
Overall, ICHAT is a great system and, due to accuracy of results, reliable to use.
For ease of use, third party warrant searches in Michigan are a good option, especially if you are unable to find the information that you are looking for on ICHAT. To search for Michigan warrants through a third party website, you will typically only need to choose a first name, last name, and a state.
