Does the police station verify your date of birth when you

Does the police station verify your date of birth when you are arrested?

Good afternoon Jim,

I'm Doug, and I'm sorry to hear of the confusion. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today.

A basic background check is done following an arrest and booking to look for prior offenses, and when that "rap sheet" comes back, it will have the correct birth date---and so in that manner, any difference in date of birth provided, or recorder by the officer, in the most recent arrest can be seen if it is looked for. But date of birth is not something that is typically specifically looked at unless there is reason to not believe the person arrested.

I wish you the best in your future,

We are looking at arrest records that have similar looking mug shots, exact same name and alias's, same location but different birth date by two or three years. We were wondering if the guy can be messing around with his birth date.

Hi Jim,

It would appear that the different dates of birth are just additional aliases of this same individual.

While it is a possibility that the police are making an error in posting the information to his file, it is more likely that he is really just giving different birth dates to the arresting officer.
