Statewide Criminal Background Checks

Statewide criminal background checks reveal an overview of a candidate's potential criminal history within a specific state. This search gives insight toward crimes that could go undetected when focusing on only county level criminal searches.

This search accesses data from individual states' Department of Justice criminal repository. It is an essential check when looking to identify records for those who have lived and worked in a given state, and is necessary to meet state requirements for certain industries.

The types of information available may vary by state.

This search is enhanced through county level criminal searches in order to identify records near places of residence, employers, and academic institutions.

The standard scope for the state criminal record search is seven years, with extended searches available in some jurisdictions. These searches depend on the availability of archived records, state laws and Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) regulations.
