Public records access and archives related to California background checks are maintained by local law enforcement agencies. This state has specific websites that you can use to obtain a person's criminal history report, conduct a background check, or obtain court records information, inmate data or other relevant information.

In order to get approved for certain licenses, certificates and employment, you might need to obtain your own criminal history. California background checks can be requested on the State of California Department of Justice website. You need to fill out an application and submit full digital fingerprints in order to be searched accurately and cleared for duty or accreditation.

There are also various crime statistics archives as well as adult and juvenile crime reports found on the State of California Department of Justice website. The information is organized by the state as a while, counties, and cities. Charts showing property crime rates, violent crime rates, and arrest rates for adults or juveniles can also be found on this website.

There are four FBI offices located in separate regions of California. These are Sacramento, Los Angeles, San Francisco and San Diego. Each regional FBI team has its own website that posts the most wanted criminals with offenses filed under crimes against children, criminal enterprise, violent crimes, terrorism, missing persons, and fugitives.
