1999 Cases from Dearborn courts restored.

They're back. That is all.

Monday, May 18, 2015

1999 Data for Dearborn Courts still missing. We're working on it!

We had hoped to restore the court data for 1999 from Dearborn County over the weekend, but found that the source file from the county was corrupted, so we are working with the vendor of the local case management system to figure out the problem. We'll try the restoration again tonight (Monday, May 18th.) No other data sources are affected, and all other years from Dearborn are OK as well.

There's a "hole" in the Dearborn County Court Data. Repairs underway.

An alert user just pointed out to us that cases from Dearborn County in 1999 were not showing up on Doxpop. Upon investigation, we confirmed that all cases from that year (for Dearborn only) are missing.

We have contacted Dearborn County's CMS vendor to get this resolved, and expect to load these cases over the weekend, so the information should be available by Monday, May 18th.

This notice is especially important to customers using our system to do background checks. If you decide that you need to re-run a report after Monday to check for any missed cases, please call Nick directly at 765-373-9245 and I'll make sure you aren't charged for the extra searches.

No other courts or years are affected by this problem

Our apologies for this oversight! We'll get it fixed shortly.

Doxpop's Fine Payment service now speaks Spanish!

Today Doxpop is releasing a fun new enhancement to our online fine payment system. If you go to http://payment.doxpop.com and click on EspaƱol in the upper right corner, the site's language will change. We hope this service will make life easier for the clerks we work with in counties that have a large Spanish-speaking population or a nearby interstate highway.

So far, nobody at our office speaks Spanish, so we can't provide phone support to users, but our support team has been practicing with the on-line translation services so we can provide both email support and live chat support to Spanish speakers. (Or more accurately, Spanish typers.)

If the fits of laughter are any indication, the translation services are at least amusing... We'll know soon if they are also accurate and useful.

Kudos to our programming staff for putting together this slick new service!

Doxpop Welcomes Steuben County Recorder!

We're happy to announce the newest member of our network, Steuben County Recorder! Linda Myers and her staff are adding Doxpop public access to the long list of services they provide to their citizens.

Linda is new to the elected position of Recorder, but a veteran of the office and was aided in the transition by her experienced staff. Along with public access through Doxpop, Linda is also adding our property watch service through which you may sign up to receive email alerts if your name or property is transferred or included in a document for any reason.

These new services have been added without cost to the citizens of Steuben County.

Both the index and images available for Steuben County are complete from 1994 forward.

Access to the document index is available for free at a low-volume rate for the typical person seeking information about his or her own records, and for professionals needing higher volumes, a fee-based subscription service is available. Copy fees vary from $2 to $1 per page, depending on search volume. Go to http://www.doxpop.com to try out the new service at no cost.

Also please check out the property watch service at http://watch.doxpop.com to help prevent identity theft and property fraud. This service costs nothing and allows Steuben County residents to set a "watch" for any documents filed at the Recorder's office that reference their name or real property. Sign yourself up, along with any older members of your family who wouldn't have an email address.

In addition to information from the Steuben County Recorder, the Doxpop web site  offers access to information from 34 other Indiana recorders and court case information from 88 Indiana counties.

Welcome aboard!

Randolph County Recorder takes us back to the '90s!

No, we don't mean they're all sporting crimped hair and wearing overalls with one strap in the office...

What they've done is much less entertaining, but a lot more useful. The Randolph County Recorder has scanned a massive batch of previously off-line images and attached them to their existing index.

That means you can now find on-line images for Randolph County back to January 1, 1998 and indexes back to January 1, 1993.

Congratulations to Debbie Preston & her staff for making a 17-years worth of document images available on her computer system & online through Doxpop!

Doxpop joins Indiana Association of Background Screeners

Although Doxpop does not do background screening in-house, many of the leading background screening firms in Indiana use Doxpop to gather public records as a part of their investigations.

These companies have recently formed an association to share information and promote best practices among Indiana background screening firms, and Doxpop has joined as an associate member.

The business of doing background screening is complex, and regulated by constantly evolving Federal and State laws. The IABS will be helping their members stay abreast of new legislation to ensure regulatory compliance. We look forward to working with this group as they build their professional membership!

Currently the following companies have joined IABS. We hope this post helps spread the word to other background screening firms using Doxpop who may have an interest:

  • Mike McCarty, Safe Hiring Solutions, Danville.
  • Will Barada- Barada & Associates, Rushville.
  • Daniel Christian- Indiana Search Technologies, Indianapolis.
  • Steve Neal- American Business Services, Indianapolis.
  • Don Johnson- Trace Investigations, Bloomington.
  • John Nolan- Nolan Security, Avon.
  • Clint Weber- Advanced Background Services, Indianapolis.
  • Larry Childress- LC Limited, Indianapolis.
  • Brandy Lord, Integrity Investigations, South Bend.
  • Dave Stinnett, Reference Services, Evansville.
  • Tim Wilcox, International Investigators, Indianapolis
  • ...And their newest member: Doxpop, Richmond.
