The North Carolina Administrative Office of the Courts (NCAOC) offers online remote access to both criminal and civil information from all 100 North Carolina counties. Individuals can conduct real-time, statewide criminal background checks in the Automated Criminal/Infractions System (ACIS) and civil searches in the Civil Case Processing System (VCAP). The information obtained is the same as that accessed from a public terminal at any North Carolina courthouse via a terminal emulator (green screen).
The NCAOC offers four criminal extracts and four civil extracts. The criminal and civil extracts contain selected fields from the Automated Criminal/Infractions System (ACIS) and the Civil Case Processing System (VCAP) respectively.
