City-State-County-Employment Screening Background Checks
We also provide employment background checks to all City, County and State governments. We also provide employment screening to municipal services agencies such as police departments, fire departments, and other public safety related agencies to provide detailed employment screenings.
The background check must be obtained from a Fair Credit Reporting Act Compliant source, not a law enforcement agency which provides no dispute recourse as required by the FCRA.
Both part-time and full time employees individuals have access to your offices, equipment and other facilities.
Government Employee Background Checks
Understandably, Governmental agencies have strict employment background check screening requirements that all Federal, state and city municipalities must comply with.
All employment background checks should include a check of:
OFAC - Office of Foreign Asset Control
Terrorist Watch list
National criminal records database search
A check of the sex offender registry in all 50 states
Pre-employment drug screening
Social Security verifier information
Previous employment verification
We offer an unlimited criminal record background check search of 7 to 10 years of all Federal, State and counties of residence. (The FBI or NCIC only has these criminal records if they are reported to the FBI database.)
Often they are not. Please see our page on FBI criminal record database myths for more detailed information.
Moreover, while our extensive criminal record employment background checks are usually completed in the same day to next day, the FBI results can take weeks to complete.
All of our reports are FCRA compliant.
Our criminal record "Smart Search Plus®"includes all searches included in the criminal record smart search, but also includes an unlimited check of Federal criminal records. It is increasingly important to check these added Federal records as they now make up as much as 10 % of all criminal records. And, those charged in the Federal criminal system have been charged with some of the most serious crimes.
Our criminal record "Smart Search®" is an excellent and comprehensive criminal record background check that provides a thorough background screening criminal records search of state and county criminal record repositories, but does not include a check of the Federal criminal records in each state as included in our criminal record "Smart Search Plus®" .
For an example of an applicant with a Federal criminal record but no state or county arrest record, Click Here. This record would not have been found without a check of the separately maintained Federal criminal records systems which contains about 10 per cent of all arrest records.
These county or State criminal background checks are ordered for you automatically based on addresses shown in the applicant's social security number trace.
Criminal records returned on the multi-state criminal are also verified in the jurisdiction of record by ordering up to date county criminal records as required by the Fair Credit Reporting Act.
