Orange County Background Checks

Background checks refer to a procedure where as much information about the subject of the check is gathered in order to make a report regarding the subject. It had become a necessity over the past few years because of the changing nature of the world and because people have realized that a person would not always volunteer everything, despite the fact that just a few decades ago, background checks are actually frowned upon. Orange County Background Check, traditionally, have been the province of law enforcement and the occasional private detective agencies, but over the years, the primary customers of such checks have shifted from these traditional customers to more ordinary people, such as business owners and even parents who wants to be assured of the people around them for the sake of their children.

There are a number of specialized agencies that provide the service of conducting background checks, but these agencies typically charge upwards of hundreds of dollars for their services, and their searches and investigations takes time. In addition, they depend mostly on interviewing people, and it is possible that such a methodology may actually be inefficient because background checks are meant to uncover secrets that the subject would not reveal under normal circumstances. Fortunately, background checks could also be conducted from within the four walls of an office, and this is done using public records that are available to the public at all times.

The three most common public records that are used in the occasion of background checks are arrest records, court records, and prison records, though under no circumstances are they the only records that could be used when conducting background checks. Unfortunately, these originals of these records are kept at separate offices because they are filed at different offices. A searcher who wants to see the original copies would have to visit the separate offices where the originals are. Fortunately, there is a central repository of all records in the form of the office of the recorder whose primary mandate is to keep, maintain, and secure these records.

In order to request for a copy of public records from the Office of the Recorder, the searcher would have to personally travel to the office and make the request there. Permission must then be asked, but note that permission is almost always given as a matter of public policy. What is left next is to search for the record, and here, it is suggested that the searcher request for the assistance of a member of the staff. Once the records had been located, all that is left is to request for a copy of the same and after the searcher had paid the required fee, which is one dollar per page, plus two dollars for certification of the copies per copy, the copy would be made and issued to the searcher.

Another method of searching for public records necessary for background checks is through online databases. There are no online databases maintained by the government, but there are privately maintained databases that provide the same information as the government. These databases are easy to locate and even easier to use, providing the same information as the government offices for a fraction of the cost, sometimes, even for free. Searches using these databases are faster and more efficient, and because they are done online, they could be done from the home of the searcher without the need to fall in line.
