Criminal Records

While the Kaufman County Sheriff's Office serves as the county's main law enforcement agency, criminal records are primarily managed and disseminated by the Texas State Department of Public Safety which serves as the central repository of criminal history information.

How to Get Criminal Records

Criminal record requests can be processed by interested members of the public on the DPS Computerized Criminal History System (CCH). The records available on this system include details of arrests, convictions, and dispositions as well as misdemeanor and felony charges all within state limits. To access criminal records using the system, the requestor must sign up for an individual or company account in order to obtain the required login information.

With the login information, the requesting party may access the system and purchase credits for the search to be performed. Each record typically costs one search credit which in turn costs $3 each plus a convenience fee of $0.07 per credit if purchases are made via credit card.

To perform a search, the requestor must furnish the search tools with the parameters required - i.e. the first and last name of the subject and their complete or partial birth date (if known).

The system will then provide all the related matches to the data provided and requestors are advised to preview each result before opening a record. Each opened record will attract a fee of one search credit.
