Clerks process criminal history record checks, which are requested by employers, landlords, child care providers, etc., using the arrest records maintained by the Georgia Crime Information Center (GCIC). These checks are provided pursuant to Georgia Law, which allows the dissemination of this information with the consent of the person whose record is being checked. This record is a full background check, which means it is a criminal history check from age 17 to present.
