It may become necessary for you to search for a person’s background records to find out if there’s anything that would alert you to criminal actions and intentions. Vermont arrest records can be searched through the state by contacting the following office:
Vermont Dept. of Public Safety
103 South Main Street
Waterbury, VT 05671
Phone: (802) 244-8727
There are several types of police records you can request and each requires that you pay a fee. A report or photo disc is $20 and a video or audio recording is $45. Vermont has certain standards that apply to arrest record requests and might approve or disapprove of your request according to those standards after reviewing. A common criminal certificate can be requested and that carries a fee of $30 per copy. You’ll need to fill out a request form and provide information about yourself and the person you’re searching for and sent a certified check or money order with the form. If the form isn’t complete, it will be returned to you without the arrest record search results. The fees are non-refundable, even if there is no information found on the individual. It may take between five and seven days for you to receive the report from the state of Vermont. There are many reasons why you might want to search through a state’s arrest records. Employers routinely search criminal records to make a decision about hiring people for their businesses. You may be suspicious about a new neighbor and want to find out if there’s anything in his background such as being a sex offender or convicted of some other heinous crime. In today’s transient society, we’re more vulnerable to predators we may come in contact with – unsuspecting and trusting. That’s why it’s so important to perform a background check no matter how nice or trustworthy someone may seem.
If you’d rather not take the time or release personal information about yourself that a state search requires, you can choose a fee-based, online search service that employs professionals to conduct accurate searches. For a reasonable, one-time fee, you can enter the information you have about the person in question and within moments, you’ll have a full report delivered to your computer. The information you enter about yourself (for example, if you pay by credit card) will be encrypted and remain confidential. You’ll receive a plethora of information about the person that you might not get with a state-based search, such as child custody issues, incarcerations, immigration status and much more. If the search service finds nothing on the person, your fee will be refunded. In today’s world, it’s best not to trust your instincts – or luck – about a person. It’s perfectly acceptable in today’s volatile society to demand to know about a person’s background from a legal perspective rather than taking a person’s word for who he or she is.
If there’s someone new in your life or you’re thinking of hiring a person for your business, be sure and check out his or her background.
