You may own a business and are considering hiring a person who will have access to financial and other important records – or, you may want to find someone to watch your home as you travel or watch your children while you’re at work or on a trip. If you or the person in question lives or has lived in the state of Utah, you can access Utah arrest records from his or her past by applying to the Bureau of Criminal Identification. If you can’t apply in person, you can apply through the mail by downloading and filling out a criminal background check form and sending it, along with a fee of $15 to:
Bureau of Criminal Identification
3888 W. 5400 South
Salt Lake City, UT 84129
Phone: (801) 965-4749
The fee can be paid by cash, check, MasterCard, Visa, cashier’s check or money order. You’ll also need a copy of your picture identification to mail along with the request. The form you’ll fill out to send as a request will ask you for personal information such as your full name, address and phone number and why you want the criminal information about a person. If you don’t want to release that data or have anyone know that you requested the information, consider choosing a fee-based, online search service that charges a reasonable fee and keeps your personal information encrypted. No one will know that you were the one requesting the data. These professional services use powerful databases and wide-reaching search engines to gather the information you need. Then, they will compile it all into a report that you can easily read and understand. Sometimes, state-searches are sketchy and might leave out important data that could help you make the decision that’s going to help you keep you, your family or your business safe from criminal predators. There’s no way to completely escape from these predators completely unless you move to a tiny island and cut yourself away from everyone. But, the moment you sign on to the Internet, pick up the phone or sign up for certain services, your name and some of your information becomes available for others to prey upon. In today’s fast paced world, it’s impossible to escape. The only alternative we have is to protect ourselves wherever we are by finding out all we can about a person(s) who enters our lives. It may be a new neighbor, a child’s teacher, a pastor or priest, nanny or scout leader – no one should be exempt from a criminal background check simply because of their title or position in the community.
