About CheckPeople

CheckPeople is a web-based platform enabling everyone to easily access public and criminal records. We compile public records into one simple and clear report that includes information such as full names, addresses, relatives, criminal records, and sex offender status. We believe everyone has the right to find public records so they can make informed decisions with confidence.

About the CheckPeople Scholarship

The CheckPeople team values education and transparency. We want to encourage curiosity and awareness in the next generation, which is why we've created the CheckPeople Scholarship.

If you share our belief that access to public records should be easy for everyone, we want you to submit a video or essay for a chance to win $3,000.
