Santa Barbara County Background Check

The gathering of information had always been important. Decision, some of them very important ones, are based upon information available at the time when the decision was made, therefore, it makes sense that before a decision could be made by a person, he or she should have the most information available relevant to the decision to be made. Santa Barbara County Background Check recognizes this, and thus, the procedure seeks to give the person making the decision as much information as possible. Background checks are nowadays used not only by law enforcement and private detective agencies, which are the traditional users of the procedure, but also by business owners and even by ordinary people who wants to know as much information as possible before making a decision.

Background checks nowadays are conducted by using public records. This meant that background checks are now easier to do, with the searcher not needing the services of a private detective agency or any agency that specialize in such background checks, though note that because of the experience of these firms, they may still be indispensable when conducting background checks. Traditionally, background checks are conducted on the field more than in the office, but field background checks depend upon interviewing people who may not even know the person that is the subject of the search, thus, making such field work inefficient.

Background checks depend mostly upon three types of public records, and these are arrest records, court records, and prison records, but note that these three are not the only type of records that a person could use when conducting background checks as any type of document is liable to yield some sort of information that could be used for background checks. Of course, these documents are generally available to the public at all times and they are afforded great respect when it comes to their authenticity.

The first office that a searcher must go to when searching for public records would be the office of the recorder, because they are the ones that have copies of all records filed within the county as part of their mandate. A search at this office requires the searcher to be physically present at the department because a search here would require the searcher to do the actual search. The first step in the procedure would be for the searcher to ask for permission to search the archives. Note that permission is almost always given, and once the searcher has permission, he could then request for the assistance of a member of the staff, which is highly recommended. Once the records had been located, the searcher could then request that copies of the same be made for him, and after he had paid the required fee, which is one dollar per page of the document, plus two dollars per document for the certification of said copies, the copies would be made.

A faster search for records that could be used for background checks could be conducted online using online databases. These databases are easy to locate and even easier to use, and despite the fact that they provide the same information as the government offices and departments, most of these websites provide their information for free in a faster and more efficient manner that require no lines to fall into. In fact, these searches could be done from the homes of the searcher. As an added feature, some of these online databases provide actual background reports already, but such request typically takes time and would require hundreds of dollars as a fee.

The procedure given below is for requesting copies of records at the office of the recorder

  • Proceed to the office of the recorder and their records division.
  • At this division, inform the records keeper that you wish to request for copies of records and ask for permission to view the archives.
  • Once permission is given, and it almost always is, request for the assistance of a member of the staff.
  • Search the archives for the record that you wish to view. This may take some time and may be the longest step in the procedure.
  • Once you have located the records, bring them to the desk of the records keeper and request for copies of the same.
  • The records keeper shall determine your fee and send you to the cashier where you must pay the fee. Note that this fee includes the actual copying fee and the certification fee.
  • Return to the records division with the receipt as proof of payment and present the same before claiming your certified copies.
