Del Norte County Background Check

It is easy to see the reason why some people would want to conduct background checks. Often, past history reveals much about a person and for a business owner who wants to hire a new employee, for a parent who wants to know about a prospective baby sitter or even someone to watch over their home, for a bank who wants to know if they should allow the person applying for a loan, and even for the bride-to-be who wants to know the past about her groom, these are the people who are often in need of Del Norte County Background Checks. Background checks had flourished as people realized that often the people that they are speaking to would not provide them with the complete picture that is necessary in order to give trust.

Fortunately, background checks are relatively easy to conduct. This is because background checks are often conducted through the use of documents. It is true that there are people who would be conducting interviews in formal, and more expensive, background checks, but a simple background check need not cost upwards of hundreds of dollars as a formal background check would. Instead, background checks could be conducted by looking at records that the law classified as public non-vital records, records that contain information that would be used by anyone on conducting background checks. Often, the records that are most in use for these checks are arrest records, court records, and prison records, collectively known as criminal records.

Del Norte County Criminal Background Check


Just because there is a collective name for them, though, does not mean that their originals could be found under one roof. Court records are the province of the superior court of the county, while prison records are stored by the probation officer. Arrest records are the responsibility of the sheriff. Fortunately, the papers that are known as the criminal records are non-vital public records, and because of this, they are considered to be so important to the public that they are available to the public at all times. Copies of these records, therefore, may be found in the Office of the Clerk-Recorder.

To request a record that is part of the criminal records of a person, or any non-vital public record, for that matter, the person who is making the request should show up at the actual location of the office of the recorder and to make the request there as there is currently no online method that one could use to look at non-vital public records. Permission, therefore, to view the archives would first have to be sought, but note that permission is almost always given. Once the permission had been given, what is left is to actually locate the record. The record may be a copy, but it would be certified authentic if that was the case. The copy of a record could then be copied upon the searcher paying the necessary copying fee which is one dollar per regular sized page, plus two dollars for the certification of the same. Note that only the clerk-recorder could certify the authenticity of a public record.

There is a faster method of searching for public records, and this is by doing the searching online. There are a number of online databases that contain the same information as the archives of the offices mentioned above, but because these databases are online, searching through them is as easy as typing the specifics on prepared forms. As a result, not only are the returns faster, they are also more efficient, and because they are internet searches, they could be conducted from the home of the searcher without the need to fall in line or even to step out of the house. In addition, most of these databases provide their information for free.

The procedure below relates to the request for a copy of criminal records from the office of the clerk-recorder.

  • Visit the Office of the Clerk-Recorder.
  • At the records department, inform the on-duty staff of your intention to search for records.
  • Once permission is given, you are free to look into the archives. You may also wish to ask for assistance from a member of the staff.
  • The search may take some time, but once the records are located, you are free to look into them. Note that you cannot actually take them or write on them.
  • You may request for a copy of the records from the on-duty member of the staff.
  • The on-duty staff would note the number of pages in the document, then issue you a work order indicating therein the number of papers in the record, the number of copies that you are requesting for, and the required fee for the copying of the same.
  • At the cashier, pay the required fee. You may also want to pay the certification fee at this stage.
  • Return to the records department and show the receipt to the clerk who would then issue you your copy.
  • Should you require that the copies be certified, this may be done after you had paid the certification fee.
