Understanding a Criminal Felony Record:

  • Input Date: This is the date the record was typed into Record Information Services' database. Not to be confused with the date of transaction, or date of record.
  • Offense Date: The date the actual offense took place.
  • Case Number: The number that references the case.
  • Police Department: The police department that made the arrest.
  • Telephone: Usually available on around 40% of records. Scrubbed against the "Do-Not-Call List" bi-monthly.
  • Do Not Call: If there is a phone number on the record, and the individual is on the Do Not Call List, then you will see a Y here for Yes.
  • DNC Date: DNC is the National Do Not Call List. This is the date this phone number was last scrubbed against the Do-Not-Call List. We scrub our records twice monthly. You will only see a date here if there is a phone number on the record.
  • Appearance Date: The date, if any, that the offender is scheduled to appear in court.
  • Crime: The crime the offender is accused of committing. Does not mean that the offender has been convicted of this crime.
  • Race: This is subjective in nature - does not appear on the actual record.
  • District: This only affects Cook County.
  • Census Age and Income: When selecting an income range, those numbers will reflect a median household income, not an average of the census tract area. The median age is identified by using the census block as a benchmark which does reflect a more accurate picture of a geographic area.
