Criminal Background Checks and
Criminal Record Checks

What Smart Companies Invest In.

You want good eggs in your company. You want to hire more, and you want to promote more from within. And by "good," you don't just mean productive and smart—you also want people who are honest and trustworthy.

This is why criminal background checks for employment and ongoing criminal monitoring of employees are wise investments.

The problem? Not all criminal background screening is created equal, and obtaining a complete picture of a person's criminal history is a lot harder than you might think.

For example, if a job applicant has a criminal record in California, but the applicant is applying for a job in Massachusetts, the criminal record wouldn't come up from a Massachusetts-only search. Or maybe the applicant has a couple names (e.g., maiden and married) or uses several aliases. Both situations can make it easy to overlook relevant records.

Not only that, but researching the various court databases takes finesse and know-how, both of which can eat up time and extra dollars if you're not careful about who you use as a vendor.

The good news? There is a provider that provides thorough, accurate, fast, and economical criminal background checks.
