What Kind of Criminal History Checks Do We Perform?

County-Level Criminal Records Check

Most criminal cases are prosecuted and stored at county courts. These cases are violations of state criminal codes. Use this check as the foundation for inquiry into the applicant’s criminal history.

State & Nationwide Criminal Records Check

Criminal record databases are typically incomplete. They cover only selected counties and date ranges and are compiled from various sources. However, they are a useful supplement to county-level criminal record checks. Use state and nationwide searches to expand the inquiry beyond the known states and counties of residence, attended schools, and prior employers. This increases the probability of finding potential convictions.

Federal Criminal Records Check

Federal crimes and crimes committed on federal property are prosecuted in federal district courts. Use this check to broaden and make more complete your inquiry into the applicant’s criminal history.

Sex Offender Registry Check

We check not only arrest and incarceration records but also registered sex offender lists. Most states provide centralized services that can be used to check whether an applicant is registered as a convicted sex offender.

Global Homeland Security Search

Our Office of Foreign Assets Control search services can amplify other criminal record search data by querying watch lists from the OFAC, including a global terrorist search.
