Many curious people just like yourself ask this same question every single day. The need to do a background check on someone can arise very, very quickly and with little warning. Finding this kind of information could save your life, or save you a lot of hassle from going on a date with a creeper. Services have popped up all around the web to make this easy, and there are also ways to get some of this information directly from government agencies. Let’s go over a couple of methods so that you can do your background checks with confidence.
Online Background Checking Services.
If you’re looking for ease, convenience, and a lot of information in one place this is the method for you. Services that specialize in collecting public records for their customers scan through all available public records from many, many sources all around the country and are able to give you a comprehensive report instantly. In most cases these services can provide you with all sorts of information including driving records, criminal records, arrest records, job history, financial history, and many more depending on what’s available on the public record.
This method is especially good if you need to cast a large net, or if you don’t know everywhere you need to look. Compiling information from every corner of the country allows you to make a search without precise information, in many cases all you need to do a search is a first name, last name, and current state that the person in question resides in.
Manually Getting Information Directly From the Government.
This method isn’t favorable for a lot of reasons, but it does exist for those that would prefer to go about it this way. Many courts and sheriff’s departments have databases available right on their website that the public can easily access. For the most part all you’ll be able to find here is arrest records and court records. To get a background check through this method, you have to manually compile all of the information yourself.
Not to mention, these databases are not linked. So if you need to search multiple counties or don’t know which counties you need to check, it can cause a lot of issues ranging from taking a lot of time to not getting all of the relevant information. On top of that, not every county can afford to have a robust database that’s easily accessible to the public. Counties with lots of funding and resources will almost always choose to have these databases easy to access, but counties with less funding either can’t keep up with a database so their databases are littered with inaccurate information, or they choose to spend their resources in other places.
Getting the Information you Need Easily.
It’s understandable that so many people want to do background checks on people. It’s hard to take someone at their word because you have no idea what they’re capable of, or what they have been capable of in the past just at a glance. By performing a personal background check, you can often find all of the information that you need on someone very quickly. Many people like to do this before dates or even before inviting new friends into their homes, but there are many more reasons than just the two that you may want to do a background check.
