Trust is always something that should not be easily given as it is something that forms only after years, sometimes, decades, of interacting with each other. Often, however, there is no time to wait for the many years that it would need before a person could trust another. There are instances when two people who had just met would have to trust, even if not fully, each other. These are often situations relating to businesses. A store owner would need a clerk to man his store, and whoever that clerk would be, the owner needs to trust him or her to not up and flee with the cash register when no one is looking. It is conceded that the best option in such a case would probably be to conduct an interview and to confront the person face to face, but one must take into consideration the fact that people are not always honest when it comes to their past. It is in these situations that public records, in particular arrest records such as Henderson County Arrest Records, come in.
As with all types of public records, arrest records are available to the public at all times, and often after only following the minimal procedures set by the office where the request for the record would be made. Arrest records are also afforded great respect when it comes to their authenticity so that the person, who would claim that the contents of the public record are false or had been altered, would have the burden of proving the same. The fact that it is in the public record is prima facie proof of its authenticity. Arrest records also form part of a larger record known as criminal records where the criminal past of the person whom the records refer to are detailed, but that not every person would have an arrest record, much less a criminal record, to his or her name.
One of the offices where a person could make a request for an arrest record would be the district court. The court takes the records into their archives because they use these records when sentencing a criminal, and there is also the fact that the court makes court records which are usually appended with other records including arrest records to form criminal records. A request for arrest records at this venue begins with the searcher appearing at the records division of the district court and making the request there. A member of the staff of the records division would assist in the search, though given the sheer volume of records that may have to be examined, the search may still take some time, with the possibility of the search taking days. In any case, once the record had been located, the searcher may request for copies of the record, and the clerk would prepare a work order form, indicating therein the require fee that must be paid based on the number of copies requested and the number of pages of the record. The fee is one dollar per page.
Of course, it is possible to search for records online, and this is conducted through the use of online databases. There are a number that are very helpful and easy to use, not to mention efficient. Most of these sites provide the same information as the government offices and agencies, but they could be used from the home of the user, without the need to fall in line or even to leave the house.
