Search comprehensive arrest records in cities and counties in California
Of all the things in regards to the past of the person that the whole community is interested in, perhaps nothing is more important to the community than the criminal records of the person who is the subject of the search. The reason for this is because the criminal records of the person subject to the search is used by the people of the community, rightly or wrongly, in order to judge for themselves as to whether or not such person could be trusted. From this alone, one can already see the importance of criminal records like Alpine County Criminal Records.
Alpine County Arrest Records are public records, and this means that any member of the public can make a valid request for copies of the records. Indeed, it is a given that these records are supposed to be available to the public at all times since it is the public that would require the information contained within these records. The classification operates as to allow any person to make the request even if said person does not actually have a valid reason for making the request, though because these records are not free, often, the person who would make the request would have a reason for making the request.
California Criminal Records are also official records, and this classification means that these records are afforded the presumption of regularity such that they are presumed to contain true and accurate information. The presumption means that when these records are presented before the competent tribunal, there would be no need on the part of the person making the presentation to prove that the contents of the records are true and accurate, but one must note that there are limitations in regards to the presumption, and the most important would be the fact that the presumption applies only if the records were obtained from the proper sources. The second limitation is that the presumption is merely prima facie, thus, if there is competent evidence to the contrary, the presumption would not apply.
A request for copies of the criminal records may be done at the local level through a number of offices, but perhaps the best place to make the search would be at the office of the sheriff for this is where the records are made in the first place. A request at this office would require the person interested in the record to travel and make the request in person. While such a request in person would often be seen as too much work, one must remember that request made in person are often completed within the same day of the request and that there is no need for forms when making the request.
Alpine County Jail Logs are also indicative of the criminal background of the person named in the record and these records could also be accessed online through the use of online databases. These online databases are faster and more efficient in presenting the information in question, but note that they are not official sources within the contemplation of the presumption of regularity.
