The guide will break down what the most common criminal charges mean as well as explain the probation and parole systems.

Police.us.org is about to release a comprehensive guide explaining how to process the information they receive when they purchase a public records criminal background check, the company announced yesterday.

“Obviously, we want our reports to be useful to our customers,” a Police.us.org spokesman said. “Part of that is making sure people understand the information they are reading. The average person can get confused about the jargon. Some people may even be shocked by what seems like a very damning charge that is really something very minor. We want to make sure that doesn't happen.”

The guide will be posted on the Police.us.org website and also released through their social media channels and blog, he said.

“There is a huge difference between someone who is a drug dealer and someone who just had an intent-to-distribute charge knocked back to simple possession because they had a few joints for personal use,” he said. “That's just one example of the type of information we hope to explain to consumers so they don't jump to the wrong conclusions.”

The guide will break down what the most common criminal charges mean as well as explain the probation and parole systems, he said.

“The goal here is to make sure our reports give people the information they need without causing them to jump to the wrong conclusions,” he said. “We think that is a very important part of our service.”
