The National Criminal Databases Search scans criminal records databases from all 50 states, including digitized records from the Department of Corrections, Administrative Office of the Courts and county court records, and returns offenses at the county and state levels. These records include all infractions, misdemeanors, and felonies, such as DUIs, DWIs, assault, theft, burglary, and more. It is important to note, not all U.S. counties have digitized court records and county searches based on residence history should always be run as part of a criminal background check.
Employers can add an Alias Names Search to expand the search for criminal records beyond the candidate’s legal name, to include any additional candidate-provided names such as nicknames or maiden names. This search can also use aliases returned during the SSN Trace.
If no records are found, the National Criminal Databases Search tab will display a clear status.
If there are any records that match the candidate's name and date of birth, they will be displayed in the results tab of the National Criminal Databases Search. Each record displays the record source and offender details, as well as any associated addresses.
