Q: nc public records are not free. Why?
by dw
A:Some public records are free and others are not. Depends on the record, type and where it is. You can search instant databases and get information of offenders held in custody, arrest logs, business filings with the secretary of state, while other records need to be produced individually and carry a fee for the cost. The law does not ensure that the records are free, public basically means it has to be made available for anyone to request it, the cost may not be unjustly prohibitive. If you want court records, and don’t need copies, it can be worth your time to go to the courthouse in person and search. Many courthouses will let you view a file and charge for copies.

by bj
A:North Carolina register of deeds are the ones in charge of property records. These are county departments that record, maintain and provide copies of deeds. Not all counties offer the same online services pertaining to requesting records, however, they all have the same responsibilities and these records are deemed public by state statute. The ease of online access is not guaranteed nor are any fees associated with obtaining the record as long as it is not cost prohibitive. Each county has a site where the recorders' clerks can be contacted. These are official records. Reverse address searches from private entities may only provide a name, but still helpful as you will obtain a name for cross reference and see if the tenants were also owners.

North Carolina Recent Criminal Activities
Current crimes by location, description of offenses and reported police activity
Tis' the season ... for scams
There are several scams targeting people in the Morganton/Burke County area at this time.  Typically, but not always, the scammers go after senior citizens who are unsuspecting of the callers that are promising a big return for a little amount of money. These current scams include but are not limited to: Green Dot Card Scams - Green Dot MoneyPak cards are reloadable debit cards, available everywhere and you can use them to pay your phone, cable or credit card bill. They're typically for people who don't have, or want bank accounts. The scammers like these cards because they're more convenient than a money wire and are untraceable. These scammers call and report that they are a debit collection service that is owed money. They will use scare tactics such as threating to call law enforcement to your home or workplace, send a warrant for arrest, and have you placed in jail. Green Dot MoneyPAk cards do serve a purpose but never share this number with anyone because they will have instant access to the money on the card. Lottery Scams - These scams are calls from various area codes including (909) and (876) which are the area codes for Jamaica.  The scams involve the callers/scammers requesting you to pay the taxes and fees for the lottery you have won so that you can claim your prize.  The scammers often request you to obtain a prepaid card or complete a wire transfer to pay them the money.  The scammers will often scam the victim multiple times during the scam. Some of these scammers will also threaten arrest or violence if the money is not sent.  Romance Scams - Scammers are targeting single men and women who are searching for love online. These scammers often target older individuals who have lost loved ones by checking local obituaries.  These scammers befriend the person and pursue relationships online with them.  Once trust and feelings are developed, they convince the victim to send them money often empting their bank accounts. These suspects are typically from areas outside of the United States. Bank Accounts/Credit Cards - Scammers are calling, emailing, and text messaging victims and claiming to be from their bank or Credit Card Company.  The scammers ask the victims to verify their account information.  If you receive a call, text, or email from someone asking for your personal information, do not reply and call your bank or credit card company. Do not rely on the phone numbers you are given by the scammer. Call your bank yourself or call the number on the back of your credit card. The best weapon against these crimes is education. The more people that are educated in the ways the scams work, the harder it is for the scammers to make money and the more scammers can be put out of business. People should pass this information along to relatives and friends that could be potential victims so that they can prevent these types of crimes from occurring. If you have been a victim of these types of scams, please contact your local law enforcement agency.   News release prepared by Investigator Josiah Brown Date: 12/18/2014

PSO Jeff Gillstrap Receives DRE of the Year Award!
The Morganton Department of Public Safety would like to congratulate Public Safety Officer Jeff Gillstrap for receiving the North Carolina Drug Recognition Expert (DRE) of the Year award for 2014! PSO Gillstrap received the award when he attended the Drug Recognition Expert Training in Raleigh on December 1, 2014, hosted by the State Drug Recognition Expert Program Coordinator Brian Smith.   In order to earn the DRE award, a DRE officer must meet certain criteria, and perform certain tasks, above and beyond the scope of practice of a regular Public Safety Officer. In addition to the normal education in the field of law enforcement, such as firearms use and general traffic laws, a DRE officer must go a step further and gain experience and training in all fields associated with impaired driving, such as how different drugs can affect a person and learning to recognize those signs and symptoms of impairment. Although most Public Safety Officers can easily recognize a drunk driver and perform routine sobriety tests, recognizing a driver under the influence of prescribed or illicit drugs is more difficult.  This is due to the varying effects of a wide array of drugs, as well a complicated evaluation process needed to identify this type of impairment. Performing these evaluations takes an extensive and more specialized learning environment.   The Drug Recognition Expert must learn a 12 step process of evaluating a suspected drug-impaired driver, as well as determine the category of the impairing substance or substances, learn how to best document any findings and gather evidence through a blood test. For every drug type – stimulants, depressants, etc. – there are different signs and symptoms specific to that class of drugs and DRE officers must learn it all. Also, at the completion of such classes, a DRE officer must then successfully complete a final comprehensive exam. By this process, the Drug Recognition Expert then becomes a valued community asset who is instrumental in investigating, detecting, and prosecuting the drug-impaired driver, whereby, making the roads safer in the community the DRE officer represents.   The successful completion of this training is not the end for a DRE officer. The Drug Recognition Expert must continue to perform a minimum number of evaluations each year as well as stay up to date on new training and information. An officer choosing to become DRE certified must be willing and able to continue learning as new drugs are constantly being manufactured. DRE officers must stay informed of the effects of these drugs and how to recognize them in a suspected impaired driver.   PSO Gillstrap has been a Drug Recognition Expert for 8 years.  PSO GIllstrap is one of only 151 DRE officers in the entire state and is currently assigned to the Traffic Unit at Morganton Public Safety, a program funded through a grant awarded to Morganton Public Safety by the Governor’s Highway Safety Program. He qualified for, and ultimately received this award, due to successfully completing each step of the certification process as well as through the outstanding performance of his DRE duties. He has performed 49 drug-impaired driving evaluations for the year, successfully and dutifully maintained entries of these evaluations into the national database and worked tirelessly to remove impaired drivers from the road through continued learning and diligent work.  Besides being the only DRE officer in Burke County, he is also 1 of only 22 instructors for the Drug Recognition Expert Program in the entire state of North Carolina.   PSO Gillstrap is an invaluable asset to the Morganton community and he is well deserving of this award. Again, congratulations to PSO Gillstrap and thank you for your service!
