Connecticut background check resources can involve getting someone's criminal history as well as further information on other aspects of their past.
Getting Criminal Records
These records are available to the general public though there is a sizable fee for each request ($50 for each application). You just have to fill out the information on the person you are interested in and submit it to the Department of Public Safety. The same agency also issues copies of police reports on specific incidents for $16. The forms for these requests are on their website and can only be submitted by mail, not fax.
Another Connecticut background check resource is the state Department of Public Health if you are looking for more family-oriented records. You can request copies of death, marriage or divorce records from them though birth records are confidential. There are non-refundable fees for these requests as well.
