Criminal Searches

The only reliable Background Check is a Comprehensive Background Check. No single search can provide all the answers to an individual’s history. But a comprehensive screening process, coupled with due diligence, gathers information from multiple sources to provide a clearer understanding of a person’s background. We recommend that every Background Check contains, at a minimum: *SSN Trace (10 Year Address History) *County Court record searches of all names, and in all Counties revealed by the SSN Trace. That is why all our packages prices include an unlimited number of County Criminal Searches.

County Criminal Records Search

A County Criminal Records Search is a search of a specific county’s court records. It is by far the most common type of search in an Employment Background Check. It provides felony information, and misdemeanor information. We recommend that, at a minimum, all counties of residence, work, and school be searched for a period of at least seven years, as permitted by local laws. Due to our extensive network of dedicated court researchers, Diligent Screening Services has access to court records in every county, in all fifty U.S. states; as well as some international locations. County Criminal Records are first searched by name; here It is crucial to search all possible names and aliases known to us. We check all name combinations and aliases entered during the order, and/or revealed by the SSN Trace. A positive match is established by comparing other identifiers, such as date of birth, social security number, or driver’s license number.

State Criminal Search

A state repository is a state-managed criminal record database that contains court records compiled from a variety of sources within that state – mainly county court records. Most states within the US maintain a state repository in some form, though not all are accessible to employers for use in employment screening without fingerprint submission. Of the state repositories available to all types of employers, without fingerprint submission requirement, very few of them are actually reliable enough to be used for employment screening purposes. In fact, there are only 5 states that we’ve deemed reliable enough for use in employment screening: Colorado, Connecticut, Hawaii, North Carolina, and Missouri. About 30 other states provide varying levels of access to county criminal record dockets; for this reason these State Searches should only be used as a supplement to a Comprehensive County Criminal Background Check

National Criminal Database Search

Searches criminal records databases from all 50 states, including digitized records from Department of Corrections, Administrative Office of the Courts and county court records. Database Searches should never be used as a stand-alone search, since information provided is usually incomplete and outdated. However Diligent Screening Services recommends a Nationwide or Database Checks as a supplemental part of a comprehensive background check. In compliance with the FCRA, Database records are not reported directly to employer, but are instead used as a clue to where additional records may be found. Any possible hits are added as a County Criminal Check, and searched at the County Court level for ID confirmation, and up to date case information.

Sex Offender Registry Search

Most states provide centralized services that can be checked to determine whether an applicant is registered as a convicted sex offender. All possible hits must be verified, by our researchers, as a positive ID match prior to reporting results to employer. We verify that the individual found in the registry is indeed the applicant in question. Because a Sex Offender Registry only provides limited information about a specific type of crime, this search cannot be seen as a thorough criminal record search when run alone. It is most useful when run in connection with a proper County Criminal Records Check.

Federal Criminal Search

A Federal Criminal Records Check is a search of a specific federal district court’s records. Federal cases include crimes involving federal law, crimes that cross state boundaries, and crimes that are committed on federal property. Diligent Screening Services searches across the 94 U.S. federal courts for violations of federal criminal law, such as tax evasion, fraud, embezzlement, identity theft, interstate trafficking, and kidnapping. Approximately 5 percent of criminal records in the U.S. are for federal offenses. A search of federal court records is needed to locate records of federal criminal prosecution. Federal Criminal Records Checks extend research for potential criminal activity from the state level to the federal level. Federal Criminal Records are searched by name. The results are then reviewed using other identifiers such as date of birth, social security number, or driver’s license number. Reports usually include the jurisdiction searched, the individual’s personal identifiers as they appear in the case file, the file date, charges, disposition, disposition dates, and sentencing information.
