There are a variety of reasons that a criminal check has been performed each hour. The background and past history can not say who you are now, but at least it can unveil some important information about you which helps the teacher, employer, for instance know more about you.
Before the internet, we had to employ the services of a private investigator in order to perform a criminal background check on someone. It was costly and embarrassing, so even if you did have a concern about someone's potential criminal background, you probably wouldn't do anything about it. Another option to find out about criminal activity for someone would be to go to a search engine such as google, msn or yahoo and type in the person's name and current address (just the city should do) to see if anything comes up.Another low-tech solution would be to go to your local county courthouse to see if they have anything on file. The problem with this is that you are limited to only learning about criminal activity that occurred within the county that the courthouse is located in.
There are now many online services available that allow you to perform a discreet criminal background check on someone from the comfort and privacy of your home. Information provided in a criminal record report could include arrests regarding criminal activity such as assault, disorderly conduct, shoplifting and DWI. These services do charge a fee for their information, but it is still much cheaper than what you would have to pay a private investigator.
