Our Services


Criminal & Civil Background Checks

Our comprehensive suite of services helps you to avoid bad hires by equipping you with information on criminal history, wants & warrants, sex offender registries, civil suits & judgments, federal civil claims, workers’ compensation claims, bankruptcies, healthcare compliance, as well as terrorism watch lists.

This is a comprehensive search of seven or 10 years of criminal histories retrieved directly from the source.

Contents vary by jurisdiction, but typically contain information about felony convictions and misdemeanors not reported at the federal level.

County level searches are also recommended in combination with the statewide search in order to compensate for any missing information.
