Yakutat Borough, Alaska Background Check
Background checks will give you your subject’s past names, aliases, past addresses, employment gaps, verification of employment history, credit history and driving records. There are many reasons to do a background check, including: enhanced sentencing in criminal prosecutions, immigration/international travel/visa, identification, licensing, assistance in developing suspects in an ongoing criminal investigation, adoption, security clearance and employment.
Some businesses that do background checks include financial institutions, health care institutions, the military and government, churches and schools. Financial institutions do the most background checks, though; this is because you wouldn’t want someone who has been convicted of theft handling your money at the bank.
Court Records for a Background Check
To request court records as part of your background check, it is very quick – simply search CourtView online (http://www.courtrecords.alaska.gov/

Sex Offender Registry
During your background check, you should make a review of the sex offender registry mandatory. This quick, free search allows you to view if the subject of your search has committed a sex crime, as all sex offenders are required to register. This search can make or break a person, especially if they are a repeat offender who is applying for a school position, church position, or elderly care position.
