Why cant you travel if you have criminal record?

You CAN travel if you have a criminal record - HOWEVER - if you are on parole or probation the court will probably place restrictions on your travel so that you don't leave the court's jurisdiction in an attempt to avoid the surveillance and control of either the court or your parole/probation officer. If you are referring to being prevented from entering other countries because of a criminal record - that is that nations privilege to do so. They have enough of their own homegrown criminals to dealwith without allowing anymore into their country.

The Interstate Identification Index (III or "triple-eye"), maintained by the FBI as a part of the National Crime Information Center (NCIC) contains criminal arrest and conviction data for all states and the federal system.
