So weit kann Public Sector Information auch gehen: ", launching February 14th, offers New York residents online access to every criminal record in the state and throughout the country. 'Since we are launching on February 14th, we wanted to offer a special Valentine's gift', says Michelle Barto, spokeswoman. 'If you find out that your Valentine is a convicted felon we'll send you a bouquet of flowers and a box of chocolates, and even dump them for you'. The website instantly identifies a person's previous address history and then conducts a national and New York statewide criminal search. If the individual has lived outside New York, conducts criminal searches in the previous counties of residence. The Insta-Search address history is available instantly online. The results of the New York statewide and national criminal search are available in 1 - 6 business hours".
Es gibt auch einen "sexual offender index", den man beispielsweise vor dem Einstellen neuer MitarbeiterInnen durchsuchen kann: "A sexual offender index search reveals applicants convicted of sexual offenses. A sexual offender search is an integral part of the employment screening process and is essential for businesses whose employees deal with children, the elderly, or disabled individuals, or employees whose duties require them to enter a private residence".
