No private citizens can perform a Utah background check unless the records being searched are their own. There is a way to become registered for checking backgrounds by filling out a Utah Background check request form, allowing your fingerprints to be taken by a law enforcement agency and letting the agency access a form of government photo identification. You may then mail the form and information with a $10 fee (in the form of certified check, money order or credit card and send it to the following address:
Utah Dept. of Public Safety
Bureau of Criminal Identification
3888 W. 5400 South
Salt Lake City, Utah 84118
Phone: (801) 965-4445
In the past, we had to rely on methods such as asking friends and neighbors about a person or hiring a private investigator to do the job. These ways could be time consuming and require a lot of effort and expense. Today, the task has been made easier by the Internet. The Internet specializes in searching through huge volumes of information in a very short amount of time. Plus, the records you receive will be more accurate and up-to-date than what you might receive through a state-based search. You merely submit some information about the person in question and the search engines go to work to find answers for you. Then, and only then, can you make an educated decision about a new person in your life. It may be a person from an online dating service, a new neighbor or someone who has access to your children or business.
