CRIMINAL - State Criminal Records

These records, depending on the state, are usually records pertaining to arrest records. Each state maintains records for a different amount of time, some 7 years, some back to 1900. Also, the requirements for each state differ as well: some states require original notarized signatures.  Some states require fingerprints for access to the state repository, which takes significantly more time, and is not practical for recruiting purposes.  For these states, we search at the county level.
   
Unlike most of our competitors we advertise our prices right up front during the ordering process. There are no games, we give you an estimated price, and then the exact price when you have completed all the details needed for the order. You do not have to battle your way through sales people to get and account set up and obtain the records and results that you need.

State repositories include abbreviated conviction and/or arrest information that is gathered from state and county agencies. The benefits of this statewide search are; convenience, coverage and cost, because it is not necessary to search every county in which an individual may have lived or worked or been associated.

 

The search is normally based on name, date of birth and social security number to make sure that the information provided relates to the person in whom you have interest. In the case of false identities and unknown aliases, only fingerprints can conclusively link criminal history to the person in question. Some states require a consent form and/or a state-specific release form.  For specific requirements per state see the following chart:
