5 reasons you should be conducting a criminal record search before hiring?

Our screening specialists manually search through jurisdictional court records in any of the more than 3,347 counties in the United States. These records quickly provide the most up-to-date information. These cases held at the county level include information about felonies, misdemeanors, and criminal traffic offenses.

Records at the federal level potentially uncover criminal information not prosecuted or recorded at the county or state level. This information can include securities and tax law violations, immigration, and weapons charges.
