Don't take chances - Background check the people around you
It's sad but true that you can never be too careful today. Whether you are looking for a handyman or a nanny for your children, or maybe you've just met your new neighbors, or you are about to go out on a date. Find out as much as you possibly can about the people you come in contact with. Searching through public arrest records can help to put your mind at ease.
Public arrest records are easier to get your hands on than you might think and they can provide you with a lot of very important information about people - including any criminal or other activity you might be interested in.
In general, there are no limits on the release of arrest records, and usually you can do whatever you want with them. Public arrest records are available to everyone.
In rare cases arrest records can be sealed in the name of the public interest or security, or when the alleged crime was committed when the subject was under the age of being considered a legal adult. This is the only time when an arrest warrant may not be available to you.
Arrest records are not proof that someone is guilty
You should note that public arrest records are just that - records of arrest. They are not conviction records so the person may be completely innocent. Arrest records just mean that the person was arrested. As always they're innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
Still, arrest records can be used in a lot of situations and they can provide information that might help you in making your decisions. Background checks that includes searching public arrest records is often performed on job applicants.
Arrest records can give you clues to someone's background
If you have any rental properties and you are vetting potential tenants, you'll want to search public arrest records to see if they've been involved in any unsavory activities. It's acceptable to check out people that could affect your life - your dates, your in-laws, your neighbors, people who work in and around your home, and any new friends.
You might feel a bit odd about checking the public arrest records of your friends and neighbors, not to mention your dates but remember that these people are most likely law-abiding citizens. Wouldn't you like to know if they weren't?
Depending on what the arrest was for, your association with them may change. You can also check how long ago the arrest happened. If this person is now 50 and had a minor arrest when he was 19 then it might be safe to say that he's no longer a risk because of it.
Where to get arrest record information
Information about arrest records can be obtained from local police departments, sheriff's departments and state police departments, or other law enforcement agencies.
You can also use private companies to supply you with public arrest records and any other information regarding a person. Usually for a fee. These companies can sometimes search many databases at one time, making the arrest record search quicker and more convenient.
It's always better to be safe than sorry. Think about searching public arrest records as a small price you pay to ensure the safety of yourself, your family, your property and your business.
