For purposes of accessing criminal history information, the candidate will be fingerprinted. A subsequent arrest notification may be obtained.

In obtaining such information, the County will comply with applicable consent and disclosure practices in the Fair Credit Reporting Act and the California Investigative Consumer Reporting Agencies Act.
