Statewide Criminal Search
Statewide Criminal Searches provide online access to public criminal records from each state. Search results may include felony, misdemeanor, and/or traffic-case information. Each state's case information will also vary upon years of coverage as well as turnaround times.
Inmate Records provide information from each state's department of corrections. Reports can include information on an individual's probation and parole and give active or inactive status within a state facility. Information in reports will vary depending on the state.
Arrest Records are available in a limited number of states. The information in these records helps determine if you should run a criminal search for a single county. (Please remember that you should not make hiring decisions based solely on arrest records.)
Criminal Search for a Single County
This search provides criminal records held at the county-seat level. Reports generally include felony and/or misdemeanor records. A single-county search is especially valuable when you need to perform a more comprehensive and/or current database search.
Social Security Number Verification and Address History
When screening a potential tenant, the first step is to verify the individual's by inquiring a Social Security number search. Each SSN check reports the applicant's name to the Social Security number search as reported by the Social Security Administration and the three credit bureaus. Report information may include, but is not limited to, current and former address history, the applicant's age and/or date of birth, and the applicant's county of residence.

These two products can cover bankruptcies, civil judgments, evictions, tax liens and small claims judgments filed at the county level for all 50 states. The State/County coverage varies and most counties are updated weekly. Liens reported are federal, state, and sometimes county tax liens.
