Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) February 23, 2013
PublicRecords.us.org has chosen to make records about law enforcement officials available in their public information database, company officials said yesterday.
Traditionally, the company has allowed people to look up the public arrest, conviction, jail records, and warrant status of private citizens. This service is often used by companies trying to do background checks on job applicants and by people who want to verify someone they met online before going on a first date with them.
But the company has said that there is an increased interest among the public in knowing information about police officers in their own community. In many jurisdictions, information about complaints against individual officers is public information. In other jurisdictions information about rank, promotions, and time served in law enforcement is also public.
The company believes that it will add a measure of fairness to the public records they provide to make information about officers that is public available to their customers in the same way they would any public record.
The change was prompted by feedback the company received from a customer service survey, officials said.
There will not be any additional fees incurred to look up a law enforcement officer. The reports will also include the same standard background information on law enforcement officers that is available for any other member of the community – including marital status and family history information, the company said.
Thousands of warrant checks, public records and employment searches are conducted on Public Records daily. For more information on these background check services, visit the PublicRecords.us.org website or contact the Customer Service Manager at manager(at)publicrecords(dot)us(dot)org.
