Shasta County Background Check

Traditionally, background checks are considered to be the province of law enforcement and some private detective agencies, because it is seen as an invasion of the privacy of others and a tool for gossipmongers. Background checks, however, present information, information that may be of some use to people or persons who had request for the background check in the first place. This is the reason why today, Shasta County Background Check is being conducted not only by law enforcement, but also by ordinary citizens and people who wishes to gain as much information as they could about the subject of their search. It is easy to see who could be the new primary practitioners of background check when one considers the changing nature of the world. Business owners, parents, even neighbors are now conducting background checks on the people around them, and today, this is seen as normal, whereas a few decades ago, this would be considered to be in bad form.

Increasingly, background checks are being conducted through the use of public records. these records are supposed to be available to the public at all times and are afforded great respect when it comes to their authenticity, so one could easily see how faster and more efficient background checks using public records are when compared to background checks conducted using the older interview method where the person doing the background check would have to interview people who may not even know the subject of the search.

Shasta County Criminal Background Check


The problem with background checks using public records is that the original of these records are usually located at separate locations, usually the offices where they were first filed. Copies of such records, however, are generally available at some offices and departments where these copies are of great help in the fulfillment of the mandate of the said office, and one of the offices where copies of records could be found is the sheriff department.

As the primary law enforcement agency in the county, the sheriff and his deputies require these records because they detail the criminal past of a person that they may be called to arrest. To request for a copy of a record that could be used in formulating background checks, the person making the request first has to go to the actual location of the sheriff department and locate their records division. The records division is the part of the sheriff department that has custody of records, and if there are records in the sheriff department, this would be where they would be located. The searcher has to inform the records keeper of the specific information or facts regarding the record that he or she wishes to see, or the name of the subject of the search, and if there are records relating to the person, the same would be produced by the records keeper for the perusal of the searcher. Note that the searcher can request for copies of the records, but copies costs one dollar per page of the document and the sheriff office could not actually certify the same as only the recorder could do that.

Another location of records that is worth checking would be the internet where there are a number of online databases that may be of use to the user. Providing the same information as the government offices and databases, some of these online databases do so in a faster and more efficient manner, not to mention the fact that most of them actually do not charge anything. As with all internet searches, searching using these databases do not require lines and could be conducted from the comforts of the home of the user.

The procedure to request for copies of records at the sheriff office is given below

  • Head over to the sheriff office and their records division.
  • Inform the records keeper of your intention to search for records.
  • The records keeper would ask you for some specifics of the record you wish to see. Try to answer as accurately as possible.
  • The records keeper would search for the record using their database.
  • If there are records, the records keeper would produce the same. if there are no records, the records keeper would inform you of the same, then you may ask for a certification reflecting the same
  • Once you have the records, request that copies be made for you
  • The records keeper will determine your required fee.
  • Pay the required fee at the cashier
  • Return to the records division and present the receipt before claiming your copy.
