What Are The Best Sources Of Criminal Records?
Criminal records are the main source of information to be used to assess a candidate before into entering into an employment or loan contract. The main reason that makes these records the most important of all other sources is the magnitude of losses that are likely to occur when a wrong assessment is done in terms of a customer’s criminal record. Both contracts of lending and employment are contracts of trust and for you to be able to trust the candidate you need to have accurate and complete information about them.
Being the most important records in assessment of a candidate, criminal records need to be from a reliable source. Wrong or inaccurate information might lead to more losses. Today, there are a number of sources that readily provide you with this crucial information. Most of them offer at a fee while others offer freely. Although cost of information is a factor, quality is superior factor that should supersede the others. The major sources of this information are court clerk’s offices, law firms and other specialized firms either online or physical.
Court clerks can be said to be the most reliable and accessible source of criminal records. All you need to visit the office and ask for the candidate’s records and in no time, you will be provided with the most accurate information about the candidate. This information is gotten from the court records. The best thing about this source is that an individual can go get the information before hand in preparation of the contract. If they find their name wrongly included in the list of criminals, they can apply for expungement by filling a form at the clerk’s office.
Laws firms are almost similar, in operation regarding criminal records, to court clerks. The information provided is reliable and can be used confidently. Another source is specialized firms, firms that provide this information to parties at a fee. Most of these firms have developed websites to make sure there services are easily accessible from any corner of the world. Reliability of the information they provide highly depends on that particular firm. There are firms that are out there to milk money out of ignorant citizens; they provide cooked or guessed information without caring about the consequences of reliance on the same. There are, however, firms that will provide you with accurate information; information that can be reliably used for decision making.
