Some agencies are already mandated through licensing to conduct criminal background checks. These agencies are exempt from this ordinance, but still require submission of a Compliance Form to identify why the agency is exempt.
As the ordinance states, and in accordance with Penal Code Section 11105.3, the appropriate method for conducting a criminal background check includes the submission of fingerprints.
The agency responsible for the processing of fingerprints and criminal records is the Department of Justice (DOJ), a division of the Office of the Attorney General. Complete information can be found on their Background Checks
