Local Arrest History Reports
Local arrest history reports are available at the Police Department. However, this type of history report shows only arrests made within the Town of Cornelius and are typically not broad enough to be considered a background check for the purposes of employment application requirements by a potential employer. To obtain a local arrest history, you must request these reports in person at the Police Department located at 21440 Catawba Avenue. These local reports are provided free of charge to Cornelius residents.
Criminal Background Check
To obtain a full criminal background check, you must visit the Mecklenburg County Clerk of Court at 832 East Fourth Street in Charlotte. The cost of these background checks is $10. You can reach the Clerk of Court by calling 704-686-0400.
