Criminal Records Sacramento
Arrest records like Sacramento County Arrest Records are some of the most requested for records from the government as these records are the official records of the government in regards to the arrest background of the person named in the record and as such, these records are often used to prove the arrest background of the person named in the record. Rightly or wrongly, people tend to judge other people on the basis of the things that they had done in the past and the fact that a person has an arrest record is something that is often seen in the negative and would be taken against such a person.
It must, however, be noted that an arrest record would be made by the police or the arresting authority every time that they would arrest a person, hence, it is possible that the existence of an arrest record would reflect only drunken behaviour or even the most simple of infractions. At the converse, however, the fact that a person has no arrest record in his or her name should not be taken as an indication that the person has no criminal background, indeed, it only proves that the person has never been arrested before.
As the official records of the government, these records are given the presumption of regularity such that the contents of the records are presumed to be true and accurate at all times. This means that the party presenting the copies of the records would be under no obligation to prove that the contents of the records are true, but take note that there is a need to prove the fact that the records were obtained from the proper sources because only such records would enjoy the presumption in question. Note as well that the presumption applies only in regards to what is actually written on the records and nothing else, thus, even if the happening of an event is a condition precedent to the happening of the event detailed in the record, that condition precedent would not be proven by the record in question.
Arrest records are obtained from the office that made the records in the first place, and the first thing that the person who would make the request should know is where the records in question are being kept. This is also important given that the procedure that one would use in order to make the request in question would depend upon the place where the records would be requested from, though it would mostly be either through the mail or in person, and both methods would have their own associated set of advantages and disadvantages that would also have to be taken into consideration by the person making the request.
Arrest Records Sacramento County are also available online through the use of online databases, though note that these databases are not official sources for the purpose of the presumption of regularity. A request at these sources would yield information that would practically be the same as that which could be found from the official sources, yet it must be noted that any and all information obtained through these sources could not be used for official purposes.
