The California Public Records Act, CPRA was a law passed by the California State Legislature in 1968 requiring inspection and or disclosure of governmental records to the public upon request, unless exempted by law. The CPRA is similar to the Freedom of Information Act, except for the fact that "the people have the right of access to information concerning the conduct of the people's business" is enshrined in Article 1 of the California Constitution due to California Proposition 59 known as the Sunshine Amendment. Exemptions to the CPRA are narrowly construed and the public agency bears the burden of proving that an exemption applies. Exemptions under the CPRA are set forth under Section 6254 and are specific as to certain records or types of records. California obtained statehood on September 9, 1850. California is divided into 58 counties which include 482 incorporated cities and towns, of which 460 are called cities and 22 are called towns. California is the third largest state in the country with the largest population. The California judicial branch offers online Self-Help that can help one find assistance and information, work better with an attorney, and represent oneself in some legal matters. Criminal history reports may be obtained from the California Department of Justice. Access to criminal history summary records maintained by the DOJ is restricted by law to legitimate law enforcement purposes and authorized applicant agencies. However, individuals have the right to request a copy of their own criminal history record from the DOJ to review for accuracy and completeness.

Q: Is anyone suing City of Palmdale
by Dan
A:If the case which you are searching for is newly filed and going to trial, you can look at court calendars online anytime. Palmdale is in Los Angeles county, which should help individuals since its public services are better than smaller, less populated cities. If the case is above $25,000, it will be filed in superior court and in limited jurisdiction courts when below that amount. If this is a past case, the court clerk offers a public search online through their website or you can go to the courthouse and request file and copies yourself. The courthouse can also allow for you to view without having to pay for copies, you may be able to simply photograph the file with your cell and save it. If you've just heard about it, try the court calendar first since its online and instant.

Q: Where can public records about Donald Sterling be found?
by lola may

Records for Donald Sterling in some ways should be easier to find than the average individual. A criminal background check can be a waste of money and useless or it would have most likely made the news by now, which means you no longer need to run that background check by simply reading articles. Most of his records seem to be in courts. Courthouses have clerks in which are given the responsibility to provide records to the public. There's no reason to foresee that the many court cases he has been involved in are sealed from public view due to special circumstances.

With a high profile individual such as Donald Sterling, a background check can be easier and cheaper. But one has to be weary that they don't fall into believing the wrong source. When dealing with politically charged stories such as the one with Sterling, there is plenty of misinformation going around. Stories are embellished with exaggerations to make them more interesting in efforts to draw in larger hoards of readers. The frenzy which ensues a "hot story with traction" specially when it comes to race relations, only adds to the misinformation.

Consider the source and their motives. People like to read about things that they support, believe in and coincides with their personal ideology. Writers are well aware of this and use it to their advantage. Why pander to people which disagree with the writer's position? The reader may not even go past the title. Therefore, some, maybe even a majority, pander to their audience which they know very well. Writers know their readers similar to business operators know their customers. Although readers aren't paying, the advertisers are based on the number of eyes looking at the content.

Try to substantiate the information through its source, specially when it is mentioned in the article. Many news sources copy each other, therefore, they do not prove each other wrong if the same source of information is being used. It can be fascinating when looking up records on your own, this includes going to the courthouse and retrieving them in person or by accessing online databases directly such as the county recorder's and the secretary of state's business filings search. His name may not appear on many things, but the dots can be connected from one bit of information to another.

Q: California public records act and the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA)
by open-public-records

Open public record and meeting statutes, sunshine laws, freedom of information act are just a few ways to describe the same thing, the right to request and obtain copies from the government. Although the federal government was not the first to face transparency issues, when the federal freedom of information act passed, many states modeled their laws after the federal government's.

As states pass their own public records and open meetings laws, some are more favorable toward transparency and others privacy. However, these statutes are amended to meet new technologies for methods of obtaining information. An example of this scenario is when there were debate regarding government employee emails and whether this type of information is subject to disclosure.

Statutes are now better in tune with technology. There have been many statutes passed in recent years to better serve the public’s need, specially when there’s an investigation into a government department. The California Public Records Act (CPRA) was passed 1968 by the state's voters and more recently proposition 59 in 2004. Groups, organizations and concerned citizens feel that open records promotes government accountability. These laws have many agencies appointing a public information officer in charge of requests.

When requestors believe that the agency is in violation of public record laws, they go to court. Many of these cases set a precedence for related upcoming issues. There are many gray areas, but the public information officers role is not to determine whether or not open records laws apply.

Here are a few organizations: National Freedom of Information Coalition, First Amendment Coalition in San Rafael, Californians Aware in Carmichael, CA, First Amendment Project.

Q: If an address is made public through various venues, why can't I get someone's residence from the California department of motor vehicles?
by ted slovic
A:Safety and liability are a major concern when dealing with personal information, whether is it private or public. One piece of information may be public, such as the address, but when the department of motor vehicles puts it with a person's name, it can become a problem of intrusion for the individual.

Different departments can enforce their own policies as long as they are not interfering with the freedom of information statutes. Another example are deeds that show a person's spouse or family trust, therefore, agencies need sometimes set their own policies. Electronic databases are not an exception. Many court records that are available online contain personal information that the agency would rather not be easily released. Although these records are deemed public, a requestor can be asked for a permissible purpose for the information. The data can be modified to have portions omitted from being released. Similar to how court records were blacked out.

Q: Are Public Records Used To Spy On Others?
by Questionnaire
A:If you consider others looking at your public information spying, the answer is obviously yes. How far can a member of the public that I don’t even know go into my records? How much can they find out? How do I know when some is looking at my information? The answers are no longer as obvious to most people, even when it comes to public records.

How much can be found out from public records? The most accurate answer will come from you conducting a search of your own records, or hiring a professional to do so. Conducting a search on ourselves gives us the advantage of not looking for records, such as a criminal history, when we’re well aware that they will come back blank, so no need to bother and waste money. However, don’t be easily fooled into getting too comfortable, this is a only minor set back, not to mention that the person searching may be better skilled in finding records than you are.

Do we know all the information out there about you? You will have few of your peers say “Well, you already know all the information about yourself out there, what are you looking for?”. Not necessarily! Self background checks are conducted for just that reason. Many conducting a check on themselves, whether on their own at home from a computer or a hired service, are surprised at the amount of information that’s out there. Even after tireless efforts being made fighting identity theft, a wealth of information is still readily available. On one side you have privacy protections and on other side the people’s right to access public records.

When does the right to public records interfere with individual privacy? Individual privacy excludes companies and public entities as they do not have the same protections. Privacy and the right to access public records do cross each other’s paths. Financial information is protected but bankruptcy filings can be requested from the courts, is everything within the record open to the public? Can the public see assets listed within a divorce case file? There are a multitude of questions in regard to privacy, and cases should be looked at individually. Adding to the problem is erroneous information about you that’s out there.

What are my options? Each individual’s case can be different and there is no single quick answer for everyone. The information available can vary greatly from one person to another. However, there are tips which can be helpful to the average person. Begin with conducting a fishing expedition of your own records of anything and everything which may possibly contain your name, tel. number, address, business/company, affiliations/association with others and social networks. Remember that information about you can be in places where you’d never imagine since companies sell public data to each other. Are you skilled in looking and finding records? If not, hire private services for a better thorough job. The more time and/or money you spend, the more likely you are to find additional information.

Q: Think About Requesting Local Arrest Records From Police or Sheriff
by OpenPublicRecordsStaff
A:A common request when looking into a person's criminal history are their arrests on record. A popular reason for trying to see someone's arrests, specifically if recent, is when people are looking for a loved one they suspect is in trouble. The major differences between these is the timeline of a particular arrest, is it in the past or was it recent, within hours, days or even still in custody. When looking for past arrests, the first thought is to run a background check. Whether private or through law enforcement agencies which can provide official reports. Do not to fall into the trap of thinking a background check will automatically include arrests. The reason for the arrest information not being included in so many background checks is that they're not convictions. Convictions show up in background checks, which can sometimes include criminal court records. However, arrests are viewed differently as the individual has not been convicted, and is still deemed innocent under the law. The result can be unintended incrimination toward the arrestee without being found guilty in the first place. If they're convicted, so be it, they should appear in a quality comprehensive criminal history search, sometimes called conviction databases from police and sheriffs agencies. As previously pointed out, in some areas law enforcement agencies at various levels provide background checks to the public, whether statewide (state police), countywide (county sheriffs) or citywide (police departments). The FBI also provides background checks (note that it doesn't mean everyone qualifies to obtain a background from the FBI).

An initial step in the right direction is to see which type or record you need and why. Employers tend to request background checks, so do individuals for various purposes to see a conviction history, of which there are many sources, either private or government. What if you're looking for a recent arrest? You're suspecting an individual you know may have been arrested. It is not similar to when a celebrity getting arrested and thereafter appearing all over the media. You need to find someone that you think may be in custody, and do it immediately.

Viewing recent arrests is simple and open to the public in many jurisdictions. This is specially true in densely populated areas with larger jail facilities. When an individual is arrested, they will then go through a booking process. The process provides a record of individuals that were arrested, which can include the incident report, evidence and more depending on policy and procedures of each individual facility. With ads all over the net from private entities which claim to provide arrest reports, a great number of the public is not aware that police and sheriff departments offer free public use of their online inmate databases. Los Angeles maintains one of the largest county facilities in the U.S., housing a highly populated jail, their website offers a name query inmate search.

Finally, when trying to get arrest reports, or sometimes called incident reports, why not go directly to the source of the information, the police and sheriffs stations? Their websites can show you how to make an arrest report request containing better detail than a simple inmate search. Bottom line is that criminal information comes from one government office/agency or another, and with the help of technology, many have public resources that can eliminate the need for a middle man, such as a private entity reselling the information.

Q: Names of people arrested in Newport bch
by shelly
A:Some city police departments do not have their own jail or list of inmates they’ve arrested, which may be the case for the Newport Beach police. The phone number to the Newport Beach jail division is (949) 644-3672 .

The Orange county jail has an inmate search which may include arrests in Newport Beach, it’s worth checking since the search is freely open to the public. You can check the crime map here where you'll be directly taken to crimes occurring from street to street www.open-public-records.com/california/newport_beach_data.htm. There are fields that can be used to select a time frame and types of crimes or all offenses. You can zoom out to see neighboring cities.

Q: Asking questions in open forums about how to obtain arrest records.
by johnallen
A:When we're faced with a problem which we have no answer to, we look to others for assistance. With the internet being a big part of making our lives easier, many turn to blog and forums looking for helpful tips. However, there are many that go unanswered. The tips below are from a full time blogger with over 6 years of experience in the field.

Be Concise

Provide the information clearly. Organize your thoughts before typing them in, organize it further once typed in. Make sure your message is getting across before posting it. Put yourself in a reader's place which has no background knowledge of you or your issue.

Check The Spelling
Spelling errors are an unnecessary hindrance to getting your question answered correctly. Remember, the person reading your post for the first time does not have any background information and may be easily confused. Additionally, there's no legitimate excuse other than lack of effort as spell check is automatically in place.

Be Specific Without Giving Too Much Information

There is a balance between posting too much information and being too vague. Being too vague presents a good possibility of not having your question answered, whether due to the answer being too broad in return or not helpful at all. On the other hand, making your question too detailed can effectively lose your readers. Keep a balance of making your point as easily as possible and as seemingly as you can with adequate information to respond.

Questions With Names Are Discouraged
Why is that? Why can't I ask if John Doe was convicted of this horrible crime which I just described? The answer is made clear in this sample question. When posting a question, many forums will look to filter posts that refer to an individual's name which can be incriminating.

Giving And Receiving Legal Advice
This one to most readers is a no brainer! But others, maybe due to desperation, will ask for advise regarding a legal matter. This is not recommended for obvious reasons. However, advise about legal procedures, where and how to find sources for the information is encouraged. Responses which cite the source and refers to answers found elsewhere are often posted with credit. Credible personal experiences that can be helpful are also passed on to readers.

There's nothing to say and guarantee that some unintended post don't get through from time to time. Some may have hidden messages or simply slipped through under the radar. The best efforts are made as an unpopular forum is ineffective. In other terms, there's great motivation to keep the blog and it posts within certain proper guidelines.

Q: who do I contact to notify the city of a hazardous house
by Denephew
A:Cities, counties and states maintain websites for public information and resources. In some municipalities, the fire department deals with handling hazardous waste materials. Also depends on what the hazard is, is the building’s structure unsafe? Or is it something else. Begin with the city website, each department has their own contact information. Since google geographically targets browsers, simply searching under a few keywords can list what is available in your area. There are generally 5 different categories of waste. (HHW)Household Hazardous Waste - Motor oils, chemicals/pools, pharmaceuticals, pesticides, anti-freeze, paint, household cleaners and polishers, batteries and so forth. E-waste (Electronic waste) - This are items such as: computers, printers and other peripherals, TVs and other electronic devices, toasters, blenders and so forth. Universal Waste - Items with mercury such as some electronic equipment, batteries, bulb, and others. Here's a link to examples of universal waste which should give you a good idea. The other 2 are bulbs (fluorescence) and home generated sharps according to 'Environmental Services Bureau' Simply google that bureau and you should see it listed in the SERPs. Providing the link to directly connect to the agency doesn't always work as they tend to change their urls from time to time.

Q: If I have the case number of a case that has gone through the Courts how do I access the case?
by anonymous
A:It can actually be easier to see a case once it has been through the court system, not to mention more complete. All court cases are not accessed with the same ease. It has to do with where the case was heard/tried/filed. Some venues allow the public open access to an online database which shows information about cases. Others may charge a fee that is relatively low, usually to cover their costs as these agencies aren't in it for profits. There are venues where a private court services company will facilitate the request, some can even be found on the court's webpages. Bankruptcy cases have PACER, which is a government records source resembling a private service where the public can pay and get the records they need quickly without hassle. If you know which courthouse has the case is, you can go yourself in person and ask to look at files and request the case right there on the premises. There are independent companies called 'attorney services' which deliver court filings. They can search and get copies for others since they're at the courthouse often. Attorneys use them to pick up files from anywhere which is housing them.

Q: Is Coyote CA still an occupied city or is it a ghost town?
by Dee
A:The city of Coyote, CA had lost much of its population once the 101 was built. The 101 diverted the traveling traffic past the town and thereafter many of its residents left as the town’s economy quickly dwindled. A historic website about the city of Coyote mentions some residents may have remained, but fails to state how many. During the dot.com boom, the city of San Jose bought a large amount of land. This was met with resistance as some residents wanted to maintain the town’s historical value. Residents stood against each other in efforts to stop the purchases and preserve the town or selling and being able to redeem any value from their land. Once the dot.com bubble burst, the city of San Jose suspended efforts to acquire more land until a recovery. The only population mentioned are few that work at saloons, gas station, convenience store and little else.

Q: who was arrested on 9/20/2013 (California San Bernardino Fontana)
by anonymous
A:Police departments for cities and sheriffs department for counties provide information about their recently arrestees. Go to the San Bernardino sheriff inmate locator (you can copy paste the same key-phrase and you will see it) page on their website and you will be able to search recent bookings by name. You will need to enter the last name, at least 2 letters of the first name and age or date of birth. On the same page you will be able to lookup 'out of custody' individuals for the past week, day by day as recent as yesterday. Once you enter the link you will see a list of names and a brief description which includes the arrestee's gender, age, height and weight. There after you can select the individual. You will then need to click on the disclaimer and enter the record. Once the selected record is accessed, you will be able to see the inmate's information, arrest details, current facility where the detainee is being held, bail eligibility, charges and other details. The entire search is free and can be viewed instantly, but you can only select a few records before being locked out, it is not unlimited. Once you've past the limit, approximately 5, the system will then prompt you to try again later. Using a different computer does not help as it may be recognizing the ISP and still block additional queries. This only pertains to looking up the full record, you can still see a list of persons arrested and their brief description as many times as you need.

If the information is available through media periodicals, it can be obtained by looking up their past issues, maybe at the local library if not available online, however, by looking up news papers/media periodicals you will get their version and may not be 100% factual.

This allows you to see crimes by location, including the street, crime committed, time and date. It does not show the name of the individual that has been booked or arrested. That area falls under the Los Angeles County Sheriffs Department’s jurisdiction. The LASD offers an online search of their recently arrested persons. This search can be found on their public pages for anyone to access freely. You can see the arrest date, time, bail amount set, case violations, the court hearing the case and so on.

A:An easy and simple way to look at recent arrests are to go to the law enforcement’s website. Depending on which department made the arrest, whether the police or sheriffs, many have online inmate search as well as arrest reports that can be requested. The inmate search is free and open to anyone and are not of convicted individuals, but of people that are being detained. Some other departments, mostly larger ones, will have a booking list. If there’s no luck with online access, some of the private sites that show arrestees may be helpful but not as current. I have noticed some comments regarding showing up in person and looking at booking logs or any type of “in custody“ lists, one of the law enforcement agencies said they provide warrant information, if you’re checking on yourself you run the chance of being arrested on the spot.

by anonymous
A:The current inmates are listed here http://inmatelocator.cdcr.ca.gov/default.aspx, however, if the inmate has been released, a people finders search can be conducted to look up residences. Depending on the type of information that is being sought, since the person has a record, a background check and/or criminal court case search would reveal certain details. The search of the DOC is statewide, but the court records are generally in county, so a people finder search may have to be conducted regardless.

Not all law enforcement agencies offer this type of search online, but finding out which agency and their website is a good place to start which can tell you how and where to obtain it. Some of the local publications may have a page containing arrests, most likely that not all arrests are there, but you can see a good number of them published. You can use the dates and the location as a search term and see what you can come up with.

Q: court case records (Pomona California)
by pam
A:When looking for case information, which court you’re looking in makes a big difference. Some courts have more online services offered to the public than others. Regardless of what is available, you can always go to the court’s physical location and search through their filings. But there are other methods that can be used with your computer at home. Even when cases are not readily available online, many if not most venues will have a calendar search on their site of upcoming trials and hearings. You can look online for an attorney service that goes to the court on a regular basis, usually everyday to the larger venues, and retrieve the copies on your behalf. These are public records but there may be restrictions imposed and some fees. That also depends mostly on where and how they manage public information versus privacy. If the case is bankruptcy for example, you can use the PACER system which covers all courts. If you're looking for criminal records to look up charges, offenses, sentencing and so forth while the person is still in custody or recently released, a department of corrections has a free online inmate search that can show the information and photos of the prisoner.

Q: Was ralph hilton arrested on 02/26/2013 in woodland ca.
by kelley
A:The law enforcement agency that would have made the arrest may have a booking list or in custody search. This greatly depends on where the individual was arrested, not all of the law enforcement agencies have such a public service online, but most of the larger ones do. Its worth checking as it is a free search to the public.

Q: Why was Bryan Jeffries arrested? California Santa Barbara Santa Maria
by Hbomb
A:If this is a recent arrest, you can use a jail list directly from the county sheriffs webpages. It’s a free online search anyone can access. If you need an official arrest report, you can see how to obtain one from the arresting agency by checking their website also. These are common requests and in many cases there is a standard protocol to follow, but it's routine for most departments. If there's no need for a detailed official report, local periodicals/papers often carry a page about recent arrests.

Q: why are some cases investigated and others just blown off , anyone have any info on tools etc.. stolen off Dry Creek rd
by tr
A:It may be based on the value of the items. However, budget cuts may still be claimed by law enforcement. Some high crime areas such as Chicago the police will no longer come to the crime scene unless someone is in a critical state or the suspect is still present. So I'm guessing in the case of a murder since the suspect is gone and the victim is already dead, you can go file the report online and they'll send someone to pick up the body, hopefully in time.
by debspur
A:That is a good point. If you know of other cases, not just yours, you can submit it to the local paper asking the same question. A generic all purpose answer is budget cuts, lack of staff or resources. Was there a report filed? Were there any clues as to the persons that may have been involved. The police is not going to go door to door or post wanted signs with photos of the tools saying 'Anyone with information regarding these tools, please contact the department immediately'. Budget cuts may not be the problem. You can do a little bit of looking around of where the tools may be sold. Rarely items are stolen and then used for their specific purpose, so they're sold for money. Where are the stolen goods usually sold? In free classifieds? Online? Swap meets nearby?

Q: History of first creation of Sacramento discoevry cemter. All information. (California Tehama Red Bluff)
by Monique
A:A good place to look up old historical articles are the libraries local to the place or event you're looking to obtain information about. Many of these files still remain on micro film, or any other method the library has chosen to use. Libraries that offer a website will list what they have as far as books online. But periodicals can be a different story. You may have to go the the library's physical location. It may be worth the time if it's close by since the librarian can direct you better than online web instructions.

by marisela
A:You can go to the county recorder's office or request the death certificate from the department of public health http://www.cdph.ca.gov/certlic/birthdeathmar/Pages/default.aspx and you won't have to worry about in which county the death occurred. There are fees associated with obtaining this certificate. Be sure to review the differences between official documents and un-official documents, authorized copies or informational only. The San Bernardino county assessor recorder clerk on this page http://www.sbcounty.gov/arc/Vitals.aspx offers public records of birth and death records. Their procedures and forms are listed for anyone to access.

If the arresting police agency does not have a jail to keep its offenders, the county sheriffs may have a central detention center housing the individual.

Q: How difficult is it to get an expungement? How would I know if I need an expungement?
by amy
A:You may not need to know which background checks the employer uses if you use the one from the state that requires fingerprints. Some individuals looking for work may think that the police department is a place where you order a background check, which can be true, but as good as this source may be, it probably only covers that area, not the entire state. The state of California's justice department offers fingerprint based background checks http://oag.ca.gov/fingerprints.
by stan
A:How does a person find out which service an employer orders criminal history check from?
by amy
A:Before thinking about the expungement of your record, it is recommended that you conduct a search of your own background to see what others, such as employers, can obtain about you. If you can find out about which service the employer uses, you can see exactly what they see. However, in most cases we don't know or they conduct they're own by taking your information and having you sign a release. Still in many cases the typical prospective applicant does not know which is background check service in being utilized.
by al
A:There are multiple firms that offer record expungement services. These are attorneys that go and petition the court to have your record removed from public view. Not sure if that covers high security clearances. You may be asked if you were ever convicted and I wouldn't think expunging your record changes that fact.

Q: How do I find out about my brothers homicide back in march of 1989? (Lynwood CA)
by cokie
A:Libraries carry old and archived stories from periodicals. You can conduct a search at the library for the newspaper or any other periodical that would have covered that story. These may be on micro-film or on some type of digital imaging database. Online libraries offer a list a directory of services where you can begin your search.
by gene
A:There may be several methods in which to obtain this information. One way can be to make a police report request, sometimes named incident reports. These types of records should still be available from the law enforcement department that created the report. Reporters/journalist make open record requests on a regular basis when covering an event/incident. Police and sheriffs’ websites will likely have forms and instructions regarding how to make such a request.

Q: I am interested in names and addresses of people arrested in California last week. Where can I find this info? Thanks for the help.
by Moe
A:One avenue to take is by looking at jail or in-custody lists from the arresting agency. You will probably not get the address. You can see the location where the arrest took place. You can look at news wires, some publications have a weekly list of recent arrests. They may mention the city where offenders are from, but again, probably not the address.
by mike

Q: When you have several projects that need to be done, do you need to find out about every sub-contractor?
by jay
A:This actually gives you an advantage, you can give them the smaller job and see how the contractor does. See how clean, treat the customer and ask about suggestions. Some bid low to get hired and thereafter ask for more or do unsatisfactory work. There are many tricks of the trade used by contractors when it comes to bidding and getting hired, so giving them a small job is and see how it goes is informative. They may claim it will be cheaper to do all the work at once. This makes no sense, why does it cost less? This only presents a bad situation where you have several projects partially done and you're having problems with the work in one way or another.
by jan

Q: What about reviews of quality of the work from past customers?
by ae
A:There have been some issues with online reviews. The source of the information being considered, it is not easily apparent where these reviews are coming from. There have been reports of reviews being written by company employees, marketing firms representing the business, webmasters trying to optimize the webpage and so forth. Even companies listing contractors with their customer reviews sometimes show a list of their best and worst contractors, which presents the question 'how did the bad ones get hired through their listings to begin with, did the customer hire someone with bad reviews or no reviews at all? Doesn't that make the service providing the reviews and listing the business useless?
by joe

Q: What if the contractor you've hired has outsourced others to do tile work for example. Do you have to conduct a background check on them also?
by tamy
A:Some may look at this scenario and think the contractor is responsible for the other individuals that have been hired. This may be true, but you are using someone else's judgment as to what is considered good work. Others hired by the contractor may not have been checked out properly or thoroughly, or they may be new to their team of workers. It is not comforting to hear 'Oh sorry, I didn't know. I won't be using him again'. Unfortunately, this means you were a test that went bad. You would have to take into consideration the due diligence of the contractor, did they check out the sub-contractor sufficiently or to your standards before beginning. Another question arising is that wouldn't you be better off hiring the other person yourself.
by joe

Q: Does checking past references help?
by tamy
A:Checking doesn't hurt, however, the source of the information must be taken into consideration, particularly when it is provided by the same person you're checking on. The clear drawback in this approach is that the references have been provided are selected by the contractor himself. One of the initial red flags appearing when checking are past work of small and simple projects. If it is just painting, then the work does not require much of the contractor. However, more extensive work that takes more time and skill are the ones to be looked at. The contractor's expertise is not in question in most cases, it is the lack of trust in doing a good job regardless of experience. Many of the lawsuits involving contractors are not based on not being experienced or their know how but the manner in which they conduct business and treat customers. Remember that many contractors work for themselves and don't get fired or lose their job, just that project with you. They can move onto other clients and in most cases have others in the mean time.

Q: Where would can a person find police reports, criminal, incidents and other similar records?
by jane
A:The city of Beverly Hills' website offers information for the public regarding how to request their information from the city clerk to criminal reports. Beverly Hills Police Department Records Bureau is located at 464 N. Rexford Drive, Beverly Hills, CA 90210. Other than an address and contact information not many of their services are online, seen here http://www.beverlyhills.org/citygovernment/departments/policedepartment/reportcopies/, for copies collision reports, online services can be used. Background criminal histories are not part of these reports. There is a phone number to reach the records division for all other inquires.

Q: Does a background check include specific cities like San Francisco?
by jill
A:Since not all background checks are the same, the source and results can be vastly different. If you're looking for a particular report, criminal, incidents, crashes, arrests and so on that you are certain occurred within the jurisdiction of the SFPD, you can visit their site and see what you need to do to obtain http://www.sf-police.org/index.aspx?page=774, lower on this page you will see that requests for clearance letters also known as 'letter of good conduct' can be ordered. You can walk in to the physical location and save having it being notarized when requesting through the mail. All you need is a valid ID to request it in person. According to the police department's site, these are requests for criminal history/background checks. The state of California also offers background checks as well as the FBI for federal records. You may encounter less restrictions when using private sources. These are records that should be public, specially if you're looking to see your own record and privacy is not an issue, only proper identification to verify the person ordering is the same as the one on the record.
by admn

Q: Does the Los Angeles Police department offer background checks?
by jay
A:The LAPD offers several types of crime reports to the public with restrictions. Some require court orders or subpoenas and some just a request form. When looking for arrest summaries for yourself, you can request to obtain a list of dates, charges and dispositions http://www.lapdonline.org/communications_division/content_basic_view/6425. This can be applied for in person or by mail. If you're looking for misdemeanor DUI arrests, you can go to the LA superior court and for felony DUI records, the request can be made directly to the records and identification division of the LAPD. Arrest reports are different and in most cases require court order or subpoena. Copies of crime reports can be obtained from the department by mailing the request to its records and identification division. Other reports that can be ordered are traffic reports, detention date information and more. Each type of record has its own guidelines. These may not be the only method in which to request data and does not cover any arrests or crimes outside their jurisdiction.

Q: Can I get a Santa Barbara background check on an individual for records local within the city?
by ron
A:Yes, here are the guidelines to follow http://www.santabarbaraca.gov/Government/Departments/Police/police_Records_bureau. These records are considered public but the city has its own policies, seemingly still within the law. If you’re trying to obtain a criminal report of yourself, other than a fees and procedures with the proper forms, the guidelines will not be much of a factor. However, when trying to get a report of a juvenile or of another person, you will have to submit an authorization letter to the Santa Barbara police department. The cost for the search is $10 and $25 when records are found. Keep in mind that this is not the only method in which to obtain criminal records.

Q: obituaries for November 2012? (Ryde CA)
by Katy
A:When there's no luck in local publications where you're looking for information, you can move up to a larger and broad area's newspaper. This city is in Sacramento and publication within this county can cover all cities here http://www.sacbee.com/obituaries/. A search of the entire year will result in to many records/data, so you may have to break it up into monthly or weekly if you're going to use periodicals such as newspapers. These searches are free and a good preliminary look at what is available without having to pay from the beginning.

Q: How does California measure up against the others when it comes to access to public records being the largest state containing some of the most populous areas in the country. Being on the forefront on many issues, various programs starts and government services begin here. Where does the public get recorded documents to criminal records can be different from state to state as well as county to county. How does an individual know where to begin looking? Are all the records kept in a central repository? Which assets are available for public viewing? To which extent can I request arrest reports? Many questions and answers are posted specifically pertaining to publics’ access issues. There is no central repository where all records can be found. This is a factor to persons that are new in regard to finding specific records. Government department offering records to the public make efforts in maintaining a fair balance between the right to know and privacy concerns. These two issues cross when certain records contain private data such as court records. Bankruptcies show a list of assets and liabilities, also may reveal other personal information as in individual’s social security number. Visitors can find help in locating records, online databases and where to begin a search. Which departments in the state’s government is the custodian of the various types of records. Ask a question other returning users can respond to and provide helpful hints and methods.

Q: If public records are open to anyone, why can't I get information about my family without paying?
by jacknjudy
A:Open records pertains to the accessibility of government held information being open to the public, not the cost. Not the same as Free public records. There are costs associated with maintaining, recording, housing and providing records. The department can choose to pay for these costs with their budget or pass that cost on to the consumer. The choice is tax revenues or fees, most of the time both. When there's a present or projected shortfall with the budget, the department asks to raise its fees. The FOIA only covers access, however can not be prohibitive due to unreasonable costs or fees. Areas that have a high volume of requests can have searches and records free of charge. The type of record you are seeking is also a factor in whether it is free or not. Some states and counties offer free property searches, entity ownership searches and so forth.

Here's an example description of what is offered from the site :Lodi (Calif.) Jail Registers [6 vols.] dating from October 1913 through June 1955; the City Recorder's Record Book dating February 1913 through 1922; and, the Lodi Traffic Arrest Register dating July 1946 through October 1952'. You can get a general idea as to where these records are kept. Other departments in the area such as the Alameda sheriffs files, Berkeley police and so on can also be searched. There are recorded news publications that can be searched by city. Stories within column in newspapers can also show arrest occurring within a certain timeline.

You can begin your search based on the individual's name and not a location as people relocate. Also, there may be aliases that need to be checked if the subject of your search has been married and no longer uses her maiden name. There are many different sources for locating people from private sources that include background check companies and people locator services. In most cases you can initially see the address or city of residence without having to pay for the service, similar to a teaser to get you to buy their services. Social media is also another way to find people, there are friends lists as well as photos. Even if you are not certain whether the person is the one related to the search, you can still send a message and find out. Other means of research includes looking up home purchases/ownerships from the county recorder's office. Property records can also show joint owners such as spouses. There are name and location searches throughout the web's databases, from a business search using the secretary of state's databanks that can reveal company owners' names and location of their offices to the department of corrections' inmate query searches. If the records you are looking for are archived, genealogy sources, including from private entities offer search sources to locate the name. This can offer spouse's information and their name which can also be added to help the search.

Q: Why were there 6 CHP cars and a motorcycle on the 2800 block of Burly Ave, Orange CA 2/18/13? What happened?
by Noel
A:You can look up incidents by area with crime mapping. Crime maps contain brief notes of what happened in a certain area by clicking on the location and you will able to see type of crime, date, location and description. One crime map shows Santa Ana Police department as the closest one to be in participation of providing the map with data. This is just one crime map however. There are other sources such as local periodicals that have their journalists make request for public information to obtain more details from the police. The CHP has a press release page on their site but nothing about this incident is appearing. Their accident or incident information page is daily and is updated often of what is currently happening.

Q: Man found shot in house on lime st in Compton 1988. (CA)
by Twyla
A:Stories similar to this one can be found by searching through newspapers or other periodicals. If you know where the story is being held, whether online, microfilm or otherwise, an essential part of the work has been accomplished. This type of information is considered public record, unless it is under investigation, which in this case it isn't. With digital online libraries, there may be some information that is made available using the web. However, in many cases, online web databases are still not an option. Therefore visiting the library in person may be the next best approach if you are nearby the area. Investigating who would carry that story can be done online with some research. Since many publications are no longer in circulation from that era, you can begin your research by looking at the paper that would cover the story. The Los Angeles times may or many not have covered that event, so knowing of other more local publications of that time is helpful. For example, The Compton Bulletin has archived stories online freely accessible to the public of staff-written and other selected articles from 2005 to the present. This is only an example due to the dates covered for this publication only go back to 2005.

by kandy
A:Regardless of the particular reason for the arrest, whether drug related or not, you can look up some arrests online by going to the Palm Springs Police department's inmate search. All inmate searches are not the same. The arrests by local police departments are processed and booked into custody. If they are being held in their jails, then the person should appear on the inmate list. Inmate is sometimes used as description of persons in local jails, although mostly to describe prisoners that are convicted and in custody of the department of corrections, but not always. Other terms such as jail roster or a text link saying 'who's in jail' and others are used, in whichever case, look for a source that guides your search toward the law enforcement department's jail/prison/holding facility and other related terms. These are often instant online searches open to the public based on the persons' names or dates.

Q: how do i look up an arrest record for Ventura resident? (CA)
by Lindaleez
A: Residency of the person you’re looking up is not as important as where the arrest had taken place. If the arrest is current and the subject of your search is still in custody, you can look up the inmate/jail lists when available on the arresting law enforcement agency’s website. Arrest reports are also available from many police and sheriff departments. The instructions on how to obtain them often listed on their website. However, conducting a background check generally show arrests resulting in convictions. Charges and bail also play a role. Severe charges and high bail are many times a factor in whether the person is in custody or not. The department of corrections offers the public free instant online searches which also show persons that have been released but still under their jurisdiction.

Q: where can i find criminal records? (Kern CA)
by Michael
A:The reason to obtain criminal records can make a big difference. If you're ordering a background check of yourself, the access should not be difficult as privacy and disclosure are not an issue. If you're an employer, the circumstances and purposes are different so will the process. If you're an individual and requesting a criminal search of someone for personal purposes, your access can be more difficult. This excludes individuals looking to hire home health care providers and similar. Another issue to consider is whether you are looking to conduct a state or federal criminal search. Some local law enforcement departments also offer records of arrest and prosecution, also known as a RAP sheets, searches to the public. These are some factors to consider regarding where and how is the best way to obtain criminal records. Private entities are not always the only ones that charge for conducting search. Often, government agencies and their department also charge a fee for providing a criminal history search. There are costs related to keeping, maintaining and providing records. These costs can be taken from department's budgets and taxes or imposed on requestors by way of fees. Record keeping's cost derive from collecting/recording the data, location to warehouse records and the staff to provide services requested by the public.

Q: Arrests made on Jan 25 in Oxnard, Ventura CA?
by GG

Q: Then can we conclude, these statistics are not accurate as far as the reporting of criminal activity in an area? I am concerned about people doing research on the WEB and they should be reminded their findings are simply an estimate ad not cast concrete fact. If the news agencies elect not to cover a crime in the news with a published story and the Police department doesn't bring it to your attention, then it will only appear in one place. That is on the public record. Also timing seems to play an important factor if a crime is reported or not. It was explained to me that a particular PD records were viewed by the news agencies on Tuesday & Thursday. If they view a crime on the public record that interests them, they can then request a copy of the report for a fee. If your crime happened for example on a Thursday evening, the the public record for that city is not reviewed until the following Tuesday, chances are it will not be reported in the news. Why? First because it is 4-5day old news by the time they see it and secondly, chances are there were bigger more juicier news stories that occurred over the weekend, leaving your incident being over shadowed by more current and interesting news items.

All areas in the county many not be included as the sheriff's office does not make all the arrests. Individual police departments that do not contribute their arrest data, whether directly or indirectly to the crime mapping database, the report will not appear.

You can see the location, call time, the type of crime that was committed, agency and date.

Q: looking for info about homicide involving 2 on motorcycle vs auto that fled scene in or around 1985 in Riverside California?
by tucker
A:Looking for the police report in this instance can be difficult. Another way to approach looking up this story is by checking the news organizations that may have reported this incident. Since in 1985 news was mostly published in paper and not online, they may have their column in regard to this incident on micro-film or recorded at a repository, such as libraries. Researchers use papers in many cases where they are looking to uncover information from the past. These columns may or may not be on micro-film. Libraries will keep and maintain many news publications of their local areas. If the library is closed, another library or central repository may have received the materials. Many libraries are online and will mention what they have. Knowing the date of the incident can be the best way to begin the search in trying to locate the story.

Crime maps also how incidents occurring by area. These reports to the crime mapping data banks are based on police reports, if the agency does not participate, the data will not show.

A:It helps to look into the news archives of the area. First step is to look up the major paper or publication during that time. Once you have the name of the publication, the archived stories may be online or on microfilm. Many stories are kept on microfilm for various reasons. However, if the story is not available online, the city had a library going far back in time enough that it may have the story. These periodicals are donated to another library, usually nearby or the state's archives if the library has closed down. Historical events are usually well preserved by libraries, state and national archives.

The police agency investigating must be a participant in providing the information to the crime map's databank. A list of which agencies are participating is listed, so if you don't see the incident it doesn't necessarily mean it didn't occur.

The county for Pomona is in Los Angeles, fortunately, it is a large county with better online resources for the public than the average, https://www.lasuperiorcourt.org/onlineservices/LAECourtOnlineIndex.htm. Superior courts are county level but may be held in various locations. The LA Superior Court allows the public to research legal documents, search for a civil party name and provides an criminal defendant index.

Q: what is the crime rate in Helendale, San Bernardino California?
by maggie
A:Statistics for many municipalities may not be available when population of the area, town or city is too few. A larger scope of the search such as looking up the county’s numbers and statistics will not be very useful as it can be misleading due to greater concentrations of crime in some of its areas. There are couple of other methods which can be used with some looking up. The San Bernardino Sheriffs department offers crime mappings of their areas within their county. These maps utilize icons that will tell you the nature, severity, location, time and notes if available of the crime http://www.sbcounty.gov/sheriff/crimemapping.asp. The local paper such as the Daily Press in Victorville has a crime information page including mapping for homicides in Victor Valley from 2007 to present.

Q: where can i find the past mayors for Lake Elsinore California?
by deena
A:There are several ways to look up mayors. Local periodicals and news archives of present and past mayors can be found regarding just about any area. Elected officials such as the mayor of a city are in the news when in office. Various timelines may need to be looked up individually. If you're looking for all past mayors of a city in one document, the list may not have been created therefore making it unavailable. News organizations offer archives of stories from the past which can be looked up. Another method would be is to look up past government recorded documents and meetings. The city council meetings are public information and the present ones are often available online for voters and residents to view. Some meetings and documentation of historical acts are archived and published on various sites within or outside government websites. Lake Elsinore having the first black mayor is an event within a period that can be easily found online and the date is not as important as looking up other mayors, however, a mayor is usually in office long enough to have some newsworthy events occurring.

Q: Top diverse areas in the United States?
by carla
A:According to a report from yahoo news, San Jose appears as the most diverse amongst large cities. However, this is amongst large cities that were looked at. What if the cities you are looking at are not on list of these reports. You can put together your own report and get a sense of an area with the proper data. Not only diversity in race and ethnicity but other factors also. The economy of the area and its nearby industries can broaden the scope of an area. Is it blue collar or mostly white collar industries, autoworkers versus web related services. Income levels and home prices are also factors that contribute to the area's makeup that you may want to consider when opening a business.

Q: Is USC in a good or bad neighborhood?
by stan
A:It's probably best for the individual him or herself to determine what is safe and their comfort level. Many living in Los Angeles do not consider where USC is located to be a dangerous place. How did the shooting of the student outside of USC occur, was it a fluke or the danger to students is realistically present. This is where statistics can help unless you'd like to camp out in front of the school and collect the data yourself. When asking locals or long time students or school staff, you will generally get different answers related to their own experiences, but mostly based on their perception of how things are. Before asking, you can do a check of the area using all the data that is available online from your computer. In addition to crime statistics, incident reports can offer a wealth of information as to the frequency of crimes being committed as well as the severity. Many inexpensive areas are attractive to the elderly that can not afford the better area, however, various area have differences visible to anyone new to the area. You can conduct a search of various cities in which you are familiar with, there after compare how the data matches up with what you already knew.
