Although it has been possible, in theory, to look through Arizona public records since all of the information is, by definition, public, it has never been quite so easy as today. The invention of computer technology, most notably the internet, has made it possible to search Arizona public records from practically any terminal in the world as long as it is wired up to the world wide web. You can search auto records, employment history, criminal history, driver history, credit reports, and almost any other public information imaginable. For many people in this state, the availability of Arizona public records is really a tribute to the success of the internet in making vital information much more accessible to everyone. But not all people agree with this belief.
A fair bunch of people think that the availability of Arizona public records is a real problem for privacy right. We in Arizona are a freedom loving gang of folks, and we put our right to do as we wish and be left alone ahead of most of our other rights. The fact that anyone can get Arizona public records with such ease, being able to see all of our most vital information has us all scared. Although public records in Arizona have always been, well, public, the fact that they are all over the internet changes things a lot. Before, it was almost impossible to get someones complete Arizona public records, even with months of expensive and time consuming searches among the files. Now it can all be done for a small fee over the internet. It is easier than ever before by far, for Arizona public records to fall right into the wrong hands. Many people have suffered identity theft and other very serious problems as a result of the availability of Arizona public records.
Of course, not everyone is upset at the news. Employers love Arizona public records searches, because it means that they no longer have to trust the words of applicants. They can simply go to Arizona public records and view personal information, to see if the job applicant has any arrests or criminal convictions in his or her past. This means that they can make sure to get people with a clean Arizona public record, who are theoretically more likely to be honest and hard working folks. But is this really fair to those who have served their time?
