File Finders Criminal Advantage

Unparalleled Accuracy and Transparency

When the San Diego Court removed DOBs from the criminal index, clerks quickly became inundated with search requests, resulting in backlogs, long turnaround times, and increased potential of missed records due to human error.

Our automated search tool, In-Quest, has alleviated these issues and more.  In-quest has removed the element of human error and time delays. Not only does In-Quest conduct a name and full DOB search, but it also has the ability to do a multi-configuration name and DOB search to help uncover cases often missed due to the literal search nature of the court’s index. Our results are accurate, comprehensive, and fast.
