Criminal records check is done not only for background checks for major corporations but they are also done in families to get some credible information about the “lucky” someone who is to become a part of that family. Immaterial of whom you are recruiting it is a must that you scan every single prospective candidate through a stringent background check. It does not matter whether you are recruiting a teacher, a nanny or even a house-keeper because you need to be certain that the person who is to enter your house and has free access to anything does not bundle everything and walk away when you aren’t around or do something that is absolutely unthinkable.
Such a check can be undertaken when you hire a company that deals with private investigation work. However, such a check can definitely prove to be quite expensive and definitely burn large, moon-sized holes in your pockets. Alternatively, you can go ahead and do the necessary background-check by logging on to websites that are run by the government that are completely free of cost or perhaps write a letter to the concerned authorities to give you the permission to take a look at such information.
First off, you need to make certain that you are not doing something against the laws of the states by checking into someone else’s criminal records without their consent. Hence, get the permission of the person on whom you are going to conduct the check upon. Next make certain that you have the person’s complete name along with the middle initials if any, his current and past addresses, his date of birth along with his social number for you to get access to the criminal records.
When it comes to the actual information that needs to be located, you have quite a bit of options out there. You would have to fill the forms that are given at the government offices, where you should have to mention about the kind of information that you are looking for and the reason for which you require such an information. Such information can either be gathered from the state’s records or even from the Centre for information on National Crime that belongs to the FBI. Just remember that you would have to mention your choice of the agency agencies on the same form that you used to ask for the information.
