Garbo cannot control the accuracy or completeness of government records.

We are only able to report what is on the public record itself - which may be missing birthdates, photo identification, or personal descriptions. Each county and source of information provides different information  - some counties may not provide photos on arrest records while others may not provide a full name. 

There are many problems with public records, and Garbo tries to be as transparent as possible with what information we do and do not have access to, including our coverage map feature which will let a user know if someone has lived in a county where we don’t have a specific type of record.
