Q: Is Sylacauga a nice place to live? Alabama Talladega Sylacauga
by roger jones
A:One easy way of searching for area data is by utilizing real estate websites that offer some information about the neighborhood. There are sites that check area schools, property values, income and economy of an area separately. Their credibility can be checked by looking up census quick facts. In addition, periodicals often write articles about how a certain city or state ranks against the national average. These articles will most likely not have this particular city, however, it will give you an idea of what is considered below average and by how much. This includes press releases from law enforcement agencies. Crime maps show an area’s crimes that have occurred street by street, however, it does not have all cities.
by jen

Q: property records location
by dk
A:In Alabama, county recorders provide various documents to the public. Deed information can be requested from the county’s official site. All counties however do not provide the same easy service in obtaining the property records and have yet to implement a viable public source to the documents. Recorder’s offices fall under the probate court, so when looking for deeds, the link to the probate court will probably mention how to obtain property records.

Q: arrest record for 2002
by alisa
A:Specific arrest records can be requested directly from the arresting police agency. Since the arrest is not recent, past newswires may have information with a location or name search. If the person has been convicted, some information can appear with a DOC search also. A simple state background check can have information for a low fee. If the physical location of the court is nearby, a visit may be worth it as some courthouses you can just walk in and conduct a search of their filings. Most courts have a site listing their services for the public to use.

Q: Where do I look for past criminal history that would not be in background checks?
by matoal
A:All background checks or even criminal history checks are not equal as to their coverage. This means that there are criminal history searches that are better and more comprehensive than others. Checking the coverage would tell you what they search. One example is that the more recent criminal records do not appear in background checks, so a criminal case search at the courthouse, whether online or in person needs to be conducted. There are several searches you can conduct on your own without requesting a full background check. Other than cases at the courthouse, the department of corrections offers a public viewing of inmates by name and will show the photo, description, offenses, release date, length of sentence and more. Periodicals that are online make it easier to look up offenders in a certain area. There are wanted lists as well as warrant searches that can be found online. Some of it has to do with luck as technology is still being implemented but has not fully caught up.

Q: how do I get background checks on myself and others in Robertsdale AL?
by jen
A:Requesting a background check for yourself is not the same as obtaining one of another's. The privacy issue makes the difference in what you can obtain and how. The purpose of the request also makes a difference in whether you are an employer, private or government and so forth. The Alabama Criminal Justice Information Center (ACJIC) http://www.acjic.alabama.gov/citizens.cfm has a service to request your own criminal search, this is not the same as a full background check you may expect from other sources. The term background check can mean solely a criminal past from records of arrest and prosecution (a'RAP' sheet) or with other services which can mean a check of other public records such as property, courts and from other agencies. If you are testing to see how well it works on yourself then order for future hires, consider this site http://background.alabama.gov/, the Alabama Background Check System (ABC) is geared toward servicing employers.

Q: Where can I find divorce filings in mobile county?
by Sam
A:An easier way to request and obtain divorce records other than going to the court is through the Alabama Department of Public Health's vital records system www.adph.org/vitalrecords/. This department has online ordering system for the entire state where you do not need to choose among 67 counties in Alabama. There is a private company that processes these orders online on behalf or in lieu of the state. The fees are minimal and you can obtain official certified copies. The state's courts offer an online case search that may work better. A search of civil cases which include dissolution of marriages is available through the state's court site https://pa.alacourt.com. Public records are not always free, actually in many cases they're not. Maintaining, collecting, storing and providing records imposes costs to the custodian agency. Therefore, the costs are passed onto individuals and companies requesting the recorded documents.

Q: How can an individual or sole proprietorship residing or operating a company obtain an official background check in the city of Birmingham or the state of Alabama?
by blgr
A:Criminal records are generally the most important part of pre employment screening or when hiring someone for personal purposes such as contractors, home health care and others not company involved. Driving record and professional license verifications are also important elements of a full background check, this mostly depends on the type of business. When looking for solely a criminal history check, there are several useful options that can be accessed from the state and the city governments. Major cities and some smaller municipalities' law enforcement agencies such as the police departments and their websites contain sources to order and request reports of local offenses, violations whether felony of misdemeanor and incidents here http://www.informationbirmingham.com/police/records-services.html. The state of Alabama also offers two options to conduct a statewide search. http://background.alabama.gov/ is a source for available for current and prospective employees that qualify to use the Alabama Background Check System (ABC), this is the official state records check. Another service to obtain criminal information better geared toward the general public's request is provided from the Alabama Criminal Justice Information Center here http://www.acjic.alabama.gov/citizens.cfm. The general public can see how to obtain someone else's criminal history or your own. These searches official background searches from the state, other entities or agencies may have a different interpretation of what an official search is.

A:Vital records such as birth, death, marriage and some consider divorces (although they’re court records) are generally offered by the state’s department of health, vital statistics offices. These records can also be offered by the county clerk or health departments of their own.
