Hampshire County

Criminal Records

The Hampshire County Sheriff's Office is the main law enforcement agency of the county and is tasked with providing security-related services to county residents as well as maintaining records of criminal activity within county limits. However, the State Department of Criminal Justice Information Services serves as the central repository of criminal history information, and as such is better suited to process requests for criminal records and background checks. Thus, requests for these Hampshire county criminal records are directed to the Department.

How to Get Criminal Records

Criminal records provided by the State Department of Criminal Justice Information Services typically include information relating to the criminal history activities of the subject including records of traffic, misdemeanor and felony arrests, charges and all conviction information that apply. Records can be obtained by requesting name-based or fingerprint-based searches.

Name-based search requests can be made using the iCORI web application. The requesting party will be required to register for site access and obtain login information. Registered users must also furnish the query tool with necessary information regarding the subject, including their name, gender and date of birth if required.

On the other hand, fingerprinting record requests typically require that the requestor call and schedule an appointment with the approved fingerprinting vendor of the DCJIS. The subject of the search is typically required to provide a government-issued photo ID on the scheduled appointment date, and pay the stated fee before accessing the requested record.

How to Find Sex Offender Information

The State of Massachusetts Sex Offender Registry Board is tasked with publishing information relating to registered and convicted sex offenders residing in the state of Massachusetts. The Sex Offender Registry can be used to obtain information regarding registered offenders in Hampshire County including their locations, compliance status and proximity to specific addresses. Offenders can be searched by name, zip code or address or by their registration number. Interested persons may also opt to subscribe to the Email Alert System available on the site in order to stay updated regarding offenders within the county.

Where and How to Get Inmate and Jail information

The Hampshire County Sheriff's Office is charged with managing the Hampshire Jail and House of Correction and as such maintains relevant information regarding the county correctional facility as well as its housed inmates. Jail and inmate queries may be directed to the county sheriff's office or the county jail staff at (413) 584-5911. Information regarding inmate commissary, scheduling visits, and inmate welfare may also be retrieved from the Jail Information Page. Inmate location, primary charge, and bail/bond conditions can be tracked using the Find an Inmate Tool managed by the department of correction. Using the tool, inmates can be searched by first or last name, arresting agency or booking number.
