Shasta County, California Criminal Records
Any company looking to hire an individual for some type of employment or other important position of trust will conduct a background check on them using public records. Using the information they obtain from the background check, they will then determined whether job applicant is someone of high public and private character, and worthy of employment in their organization. Depending on how important the position is, the background check for it may be cursory, or extensive. A cursory background check might only search for felony convictions, while an extensive check might include employment history, credit history, past residences, and even personal references. One thing that a company cannot afford to do is include a convicted felon or sex offender in their ranks, so they will always perform at least a basic background check on any and all of their job applicants.
At some point during an all-encompassing, systematic background check of a county individual, you will need to check to see if they have any criminal records on file with the local superior court.

You may need to learn whether a county citizen is an offender with the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation as part of a background check. If it is at all possible they are a recent parolee, have an outstanding arrest warrant, or are named in a protection order, you can search the DOC’s offender database at this link: http://www.cdcr.ca.gov/Reports_Research/Inmate_Locator.html.
People living in California have the option of going through the California Department of Justice to request their own paid background check.
