An increasing number of regulated industries, such as healthcare and education, require inclusion of statewide background screening as part of license application and hiring standards.

As a result, many employers and non-profit agencies find value in broad-scope searches, especially when paired with county criminal record search.

In strict accordance with FCRA regulation, each record is verified by our trained research personnel to ensure proper identification and that the record is complete and up to date before inclusion in the final report. Results will typically include file, offense and disposition dates, case number, charges, severity of each charge and disposition and sentencing details, including probation violations when available.

Reporting practices can vary by state, meaning that the court may or may not report into the statewide database with regularity. Simply put, some statewide searches are more reliable than others. Our Account executives are well versed in the court’s reporting practices at the statewide level and help businesses navigate the various searches to find the most comprehensive criminal record service options to meet their particular needs.
