Provides information on sexual offenders that are required to register as Sexual/Violent Offenders in the state where they currently reside. State sex-offender registration and notification programs are designed, in general, to include information about offenders who have been convicted of a criminal offense against a victim who is a minor or a sexually violent offense.
National Criminal Search (Instant)
Most criminal cases are found at the state or local level. The National Criminal Database scans multiple sources from each state to locate state or local level felonies and misdemeanors. Federal crimes will not be reflected in State or local level records. The coverage area differs in each state and we will only recommend this product when the coverage area for your state is sufficient. This search covers all 50 states.
Statewide Criminal Repository Search (24-72 Hours)
This criminal record check is usually used to obtain information from the states where coverage in the National Criminal Search is not sufficient. This search provides statewide criminal record searches from the official state repository in states that permit the legal dissemination of law enforcement or criminal record information. Crimes reported may include felony, misdemeanor and traffic offenses. Due to legal restrictions, some states do not allow for the dissemination of their state criminal records. In other states, special authorization form is required to release information. Some states may require fingerprint cards or special state authorization forms, usually notarized. Several state repositories show arrest records which may not accurately depict a conviction. Charges could have been dropped or reduced to a lesser charge.
County Criminal Search (24-72 Hours)
The County Criminal Records search is a manual, in-person search of felony and misdemeanor records directly at the county courthouse. The County Criminal Records search reports felony and misdemeanor conviction information going back at least 7 years. All records are manually searched for quality control and accuracy by our experienced and extensive court researcher network. We recommend that counties where an applicant has lived or worked over the last 5 to 7 years be checked.
Federal Criminal Search (24-72 Hours)
Some offenses are violations of Federal law as opposed to state or local law and can be located in the US District Courts. Federal offenses can be very severe involving embezzlement, kidnapping, drug trafficking, interstate transportation of stolen goods and bank robbery. We access Federal District Court records directly to obtain the information you need to make informed hiring decisions. This search will include all Districts in the state where the applicant lives. Every state has at least one District with some having a many as four. Records will reflect the date filed, all charges, the severity of each charge, disposition date and final disposition or current status.
