The most basic way to find what you need in our database is to search our simple form: what are you looking for, from where?


  • Use generic search terms. We track places on the internet where data is found, not individual records. If you want to find a police record of a bike accident on Telegraph Avenue in Oakland, CA, you might want to start by searching for accidents in Pooler, not bicycle accident at 1234 Rogers St.
  • Expect missing data. Most of our data is passively collected based on the needs and interests of our users. If you're looking for a specific record from a small town, we probably don't have it. Make a request and we'll help you out!
  • Use "all" or state names to broaden your search. We might have what you're looking for by a different name, or in a different region.
  • Use the Record Types taxonomy to understand how we categorize things.
