Houston, TX (PRWEB) October 24, 2013
ArrestRecords.us.org has completed a massive database update after the recent federal government shutdown.
“For the 16 days of the shutdown, we were not provided with any federal arrest records or other federal documents,” an ArrestRecords.us.org spokesman said. “The people who report them to us were not considered essential employees.”
Once the shutdown ended last week, all of the public documents that had been building up were released at once, the ArrestRecords.us.org spokesman said.
“We suddenly found ourselves having to deal with 16 times as many documents as we usually do,” he said. “It put quite a strain on our resources. We put on extra staff to try to deal with the issue, but it still took several days to catch up. Each and every day meant more new data was coming in while we were trying to upload the old data.”
ArrestRecords.us.org made the upload a priority for their company, he said.
“We want our customers to have the most up-to-date records, and for 16 days during the shutdown we were not updating our database at all,” he said. “That motivated us to make sure that our data was uploaded as quickly as possible.”
The database is now fully updated and customers have access to current federal data, he said.
“We just hope that this type of situation doesn't happen again,” he said.
