File Finders Criminal Advantage

Unparalleled accuracy and transparency

When the San Diego Court removed DOBs from the criminal index, the court quickly became inundated with name and DOB search requests. The strain placed on the clerks inevitably resulted in backlogs, delays, and increased exposure to missed records.

Our automated search tool, In-Quest, has alleviated these issues by eliminating the need for clerk-assisted name and DOB searches.

In-Quest conducts standard, multi-configuration, and extended scope name and DOB searches. Our automated system is designed to account for specific nuances commonly found in the court’s index. Consequently, we regularly uncover and return records that would have otherwise been missed with a literal search. Our results are highly accurate, thorough, and fast.
