National Criminal Database Search
This search is a national criminal database check of various databases from across the country. Records include information from state correctional institutions, sexual offender and violent offender lists, the Office of Foreign Asset Control (OFAC) and various state and county court records. As per the FCRA, if any violation is uncovered in this search, we will automatically conduct a county criminal search to determine the accuracy of the violation.
Federal District Criminal Search
This search checks cases prosecuted on the Federal level by the US Attorney's office. It is important to note that any information in the Federal court system will not be listed on any state or county searches. Some of the crimes handled at this level include kidnapping, tax evasion, Securities and Exchange (SEC) violations, drug trafficking, immigration law violations and mail fraud.
State Criminal Search
This search checks felony and misdemeanor records located in state repositories. This check is not available in all areas as some states restrict access to law enforcement personnel only. The state criminal check can be a very effective search tool because it usually encompasses a larger geographic area. However, because many states do not require the individual counties to update the records on a daily basis, the accuracy and timeliness of a county criminal check is usually recommended over a state criminal check.
County Criminal Search
This search checks felony and misdemeanor cases on the county court level and is conducted directly by HR Screening Services. This is generally the most accurate and up to date of all of the criminal record searches and is in full compliance with the FCRA requirements on timely, updated information.
