Once they’ve grown, your kids would want to enjoy more freedom. They may hate your constant reminders, precautions, and everything that has to do with them; especially when they enter the adolescent period. We often hear them say with conviction, “I’m a big boy now” or “I’m no longer a little girl”. Although it’s true that children need a certain degree of independence, as a parent, you still have to ensure that they are far from lurking dangers. They would go out with some friends or on a date. Kids like to go to shows or get-togethers; they’d attend at events, sports and others that they’re interested in. In such situations, they would of course encounter varied people. Your child may stick with peers that are not necessarily familiar to you. It’s good if you’re aware of all of their activities and whereabouts. Ask who they’ll be going with etc. Or if you get people’s names, you can have a quick check on their California Police Records just to figure out if these people are indeed safe companions.
As one of the law enforcement teams, police departments have the task to compile criminal arrests and conviction data. These files then are being forwarded and held at the CA state main repository of Criminal History Record Information. Thus requests to view a person’s police criminal background record would mean obtaining it from the Department of Justice, the central criminal data archive in the California State.
Actually, these are background inspection reports that may be conducted and provided to you once the criteria for both process and release are met by a certain requester. Traditionally, rules are set in accessing and disseminating it that’s why it’s a greater challenge in stricter states like CA. Nonetheless, general safety can’t be taken lightly especially in positions dealing with the frail and vulnerable such as children and the elderly. Thus California law authorizes certain governmental and private companies to conduct background checks to help them determine a candidate’s suitability for licensing, job placement, and volunteerism.
Third parties don’t have access to CA criminal files secured at the state main archive. It’s either an individual submitting his own fingerprints in order to obtain a record check for review or an authorized party submitting applicants’ fingerprints to have the check conducted through the California DOJ.
There are instances when immediate needs come up; however typical restrictions may hamper us from completing it. That’s why commercial check sites online are great alternatives in gathering facts about someone’s history. Police Reports are vital public data records that can assure you of safety and informed decisions. It can help you find out if someone your child is associating with has been arrested or convicted of a sex offense, a misdemeanor or a felony.
We can’t tell by merely looking at people’s faces how safe or dangerous they are. Somebody whom your kid is hanging out with today may not be safe. You don’t have to put pressure on your children by meddling into their affairs. You can protect them even without taking away their deserved liberty. Even without them knowing, you can privately investigate in your own room and have a worry-free mind.
