Asbury Park Press launches new Database of public records


If you ever wondered how much the governor is paid, how many math teachers are in your child's school, or what prices the homes on your block sold for, look no further.
You can find that information and more here on the DataUniverse section of app.com. This section places a host of powerful and searchable public databases at your fingertips. And the best news: It's free.

With the DataUniverse, you will find:

  • Local home sales data from 1999 to 2006, searchable by town or address.
  • Property ownership records throughout New Jersey, searchable by name or address.
  • Detailed town-by-town crime statistics since 1996.
  • A database of New Jersey state government employees, searchable by name, salary or department.
  • Campaign contribution records for state races and PACs, searchable by name, zip code or candidate.
  • Public school teacher and administrator salaries and job experience.
  • Links to New Jersey prison inmates, past and present, and the state's sex offender Internet registery.
  • Links to consumer information sites, such as a database of doctors who have been disciplined, and charity financial information.

But this is only the beginning. In the coming weeks and months, the site will grow as they add more databases and links.

Many people find themselves curious about Public Records . Sometimes, it is just idle curiosity. Sometimes, it is a potential employer or other interested party who wants more details concerning a court case which effects them. After all, even major court cases may be decided well after media attention dies down, and the resulting records are simply published and forgotten about. Additionally, many persons wish to know more about the legal history of a person, especially if the person may have been less than good.
