Q: Where can a self search for warrants be looked up?
by publicpost
A:Arrest warrants generally don’t show up in background checks you can easily order as they are not the same as a record from convictions. Look up the police department’s website to see how a request is submitted. This should be a routine request with sources already in place. Departments have different policies when it comes to providing warrant information. There can be a fee for a hard copy, or with a few departments, not many, the warrant information may be online.

Q: I'm buying a home and want to know where to look if the neighborhood is safe? (Salem OR)
by Lizzy
A:Looking up crime statistics leaves gathering the data to a particular research and their findings. Even when gathering crime reports, there's a determination as to the type of crime and what to include. There are several ways to conduct your own search and see what type of area you are about to reside in. Crime maps will show you violations occurring with a given area, you can select the type of crime/severity and the time span. Law enforcement websites often have yearly crime reports. However, these do not reveal how many registered offenders or predators live in the area. This is an easy search that is offered by state and local law enforcement websites. Schools are another way to consider when looking to be familiar with the area. Students graduation rates and class data is easily found online by area or particular school and are considered public information. Property values can also be looked at as an indication of the area's wealth. Newspapers can show crimes committed in their area, however, you may be once again looking at someone else's research and results unless a specific statistic is cited as opposed to rankings. Rankings as to the safest cities look at certain issues differently from one study to another.

Q: Which assets can I expect to find in an Oregon background check?
by ellen
A:Some background checks only provide criminal records and some do more. The particular records searched are decided by the agency or entity that is provides the results. Some may focus on records that are aimed more toward assets than others by including various ownerships in recorded public agencies.
