San Luis Obispo County Background Check

One of the most crucial resources available in the world of today is information. With information, people could make right and informed choices, choices that may very well be crucial. There are many ways in order to gain information, just as there are many ways that such information could be used, and San Luis Obispo County Background Checkis but one of those ways that information could be gathered, collated, and used. Background checks refer to the process of collecting information from the past of a person, the subject of the search, and compiling such information in a report that could then be used in a variety of ways. The most frequent people who practice this procedure used to be law enforcement, but now even ordinary people resort to this process.

The reason for this is the evolving way and method that such background checks are conducted. Traditionally, there are two methods of conducting background checks, the first would be through the use of records and the second would be through field interviews. Up until relatively recently, it was the latter, rather than the former, that is the most preferred method of conducting background checks. Technology and the new public policies, however, meant that now, the uses of records are becoming the more preferred method given that they are easier to do and this method does not require much manpower and time. After all, these records are generally available to the public at any given time and are located at specific locations.

San Luis Obispo County Criminal Background Check


Background checks typically depend upon a type of record known as criminal records. Criminal records are made up of three public documents, and these are arrest records, court records, and prison records. Note, however, that these are not the only records that one could use when conducting such background checks as practically any public record would yield information that may be of some value to the searcher.

The first office that a searcher who wants to request for public records should visit is the office of the recorder. The recorder is the official custodian of all public records in the county and as part of this mandate, the recorder maintains an archive where such records are kept. The procedure for requesting records from this office begins with the searcher arriving at the office to ask permission to look into the archives, and once that permission is given, the searcher may request for the assistance of a member of the staff in making the search. Once the records had been located, though this may take some time given the volume of records that must be examined, the searcher could request for a copy of the records that he finds most relevant. Copies costs one dollar per page, plus two dollars for certification for every document that is to be copied.

Of course, searchers could also be done online, and though there are no government databases containing public records that the public could use, there are a number of privately maintained databases that provide the same information as these government agencies and departments. These online databases are easy to find and use, with the added bonus of some not even requiring the user to pay. There are even some who provide for background reports already, though note that requesting for the same could take fees exceeding hundreds of dollars and may take some time.

The procedure to request for public records at the office of the recorder is given below

  • Visit the Office of the Recorder and ask permission to view the archives.
  • Once permission is given, and it is almost always given, request a member of the staff to assist you in your search.
  • Search the archives. This may be the longest part of the procedure given the volume of records that must be checked.
  • Once the records had been located, bring them to the desk of the records keeper and request for copies there.
  • The records keeper would send you to the cashier where you must pay the required fee as indicated by the recorder keeper in the work order that he will issue you. This would already include the certification fee.
  • Return to the records division and present the receipt as proof of payment before you claim your certified copy.
