Mendocino County Background Check

While it is undeniable that the best way to get to know a person would be to talk to the person and get him to disclose some of his own secrets, it is also undeniable that sometimes, people keep secrets, secrets related to their criminal past being the ones that most people keep. These secrets are sometimes facts and information that must be made known to the person on the other side of the desk. These tidbits of information are usually necessary in a number of everyday processes, and because they would not be revealed easily, Mendocino County Background Check became necessary so that the person on the other side of the desk could know more about the subject.

Fortunately, background checks are relatively easy to conduct and could also be conducted without the help of firms specializing in the same. There is nothing wrong with retaining such a firm, and sometimes, their experience in conducting these checks would prove to be a boon, but one must note that these firms typically charge upwards of hundreds of dollars for their services. It is far better and more efficient, not to mention cheaper, for the searcher to just do the background check himself through the use of public records and documents that are considered to be available to the public at all times because of public policy.

The public records that are most often helpful in conducting background checks are arrest records, court records, and prison records, but these records, or at least the original copies of them, are kept at different geographic locations because the law requires that originals of the records be kept at the place where they were originally filed, and these three records are filed at different offices. In addition, there are other types of public records that the searcher may find to be of some use when conducting background checks, but as with the three public records mentioned above, the originals of the same are also located at different locations.

Fortunately, there is a central repository of all non-vital public records as these three records are officially classed under, and this is the office of the recorder whose primary duty it is to keep, maintain and secure these records for reasons of posterity. It is also relatively easy to obtain records from this office, though note that the person who wishes to do so must make the request to look into the archives of the office personally. Permission is almost always given, and once it is given to the searcher, the searcher must search the archive for the record though he could request for the assistance of a member of the staff. Once the record had been located, he could then request that a copy of the same be made for him, and after he had paid the required copying fee which is one dollar per page, the copy would be made for him.

Searching for records could also be done online, though note that the databases that a user would use when doing online searches are not affiliated with the government because of California law. In any case, these online databases do provide the same information as the government offices mentioned above, but they do so faster and more efficiently. In addition, a great many of them do not charge anything for the use of their databases, and because these searches are done using the internet, there are no lines, and there is not even the requirement on the part of the user to leave his home in order to conduct the search.

Public records may be obtained from the office of the recorder by following the given procedure

  • Head over to the Office of the Recorder
  • Inform the staff member on duty at the records division of your intention to obtain copies of public records.
