California has the largest population of all of the 50 states in America. It is so large that it takes up half of the west coast all by itself and includes 12% of the nations population, along with countless undocumented aliens and visitors. In fact, more people live in California than in Canada or Australia! Much like Texas, California can often be a “safe harbor” for illegal immigrants. In addition to the fact that California is such a popular place for immigrants to dwell, it also houses some of the countries’ major cities like Los Angeles, San Francisco and San Diego. California is also unique in that it’s major cities all have a high crime rate and are known for aggressive gang activity. The greater the population and complexity of the residents, the more you will find yourself in the position of needing a California background check – be it for personal or professional reasons.

California Background Check
Locating people

Each search at ASG is conducted by an actual investigator in order to ensure the highest quality results. Many companies offering California background checks have no investigators working for them and are often nothing more than computerized searches. California has specific rules and regulations for conducting employment screening checks. The California background check experts at ASG know all the unique laws and regulations that govern how a California background check must be legally conducted for employment purposes, yet still uncover any information you need to know.


Obviously, criminal activity is a major concern to all of our clients. It is also important that you understand that criminal records within a California background check must be done at a local level.


If a company is offering this type of background check to you, they have created their own “national” criminal database which can be a useful tool, but should never be used in decision making.

Each state has different ways of recording criminal record information. California does not have a statewide criminal record databases. Each California court (at the city or county level) also has its own unique way of recording criminal records and allowing the public access to them. At ASG, we know exactly where and how to look for records, and deliver them in the fastest and most intelligent way possible.
