Kodiak Island Borough, Alaska Background Check
Health care institutions, financial institutions, the military and government, churches and schools all conduct background checks as part of their hiring process. Any position of trust will require this to be done before the candidate is offered a position.
Court Records for a Background Check
For any case that has been heard by a United States court, there will be a record created and stored. You can search through Alaska’s court records online via CourtView at http://www.courtrecords.alaska.gov/
by court name or the name of the person who has appeared in court.
To obtain a hard copy of the records you have found, you need to contact the clerk of court’s office. The Kodiak Island Borough Clerk of Court is located at 204 Mission Road, Room 124, Kodiak, AK 99615-7312. You can also phone the office at 907-486-1600.
Criminal Records for a Background Check
If you are investigating someone who has been convicted of a crime, you may want to view his or her criminal records to see if it has been a pattern in the past. A name-based search, while not recommended (it can miss aliases given when arrested), is $20. A fingerprint-based search is $35.
Sex Offender Registry
If you are hiring for a sensitive position, such as a teacher at a school or an orderly at a nursing home, you will surely want to check the sex offender registry. All criminals who have been convicted of a sex crime are required to register on this free site. The local sex offender registry is available here: http://www.dps.state.ak.us/Sorweb/Search.aspx
. If you are looking at someone who currently lives out of state, a national sex offender search can be found here: http://www.nsopw.gov/Core/OffenderSearchCriteria.aspx
