National Criminal Search
Sources commonly returning results include, but are not limited to, the following:
- State records
- State correctional/probation incarceration departments
- State and county courthouses
The Nationwide Criminal Database is a very broad type of search which lacks the specific focus and quality of information returned by a statewide or county criminal hand search. However, it is a good addition to supplement the rest of the background check.
For these reasons, Backgrounds Online does not recommend our clients utilize this report as a single measure for criminal history screening. We suggest utilizing a focused blend of statewide and county specific searches, along with a database, which will deliver far more reliable and accurate data.
