Nationwide Criminal Record Background Check (Multi-State) Auto Verify


 These reports do not include all data from every county in the reporting states.

The results of this search typically do not include any details of the reported offense.

In order to comply with the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA ) any results obtained from this search must be confirmed through a County Criminal Search, which will also provide a greater level of detail.

The National criminal Database Search casts a very wide net and it is a valuable part of any criminal background check but it is never recommended as the only resource for conducting criminal background checks.

It is simply a valuable complimentary tool for conducting a more thorough search.

County and Individual State and or Federal  Criminal Background checks are the only reliable sources of criminal background records.

The Nationwide Multi-State criminal Records Background Check also includes the following reports at no extra charge:

A 50 state sex offender search is also included in our criminal record smart search® and the criminal record smart search plus®.

This search is abbreviated as SOR and appears in the report summary as part of the multi-state auto verify portion of the report.

The National Database Search when used with Auto Verify casts a very wide net and is part of any criminal background check but it is never recommended as the primary or only resource for conducting employment related criminal background checks. It is simply a complimentary tool for conducting a more thorough search at the county courthouse level.

*A note about database searches:
The Multi-state criminal background check which includes a 50 state Sex Offender Registry check and Terrorist WATCH are compiled from multiple public record data sources.


Reports from these types of searches are NOT FCRA COMPLIANT and the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has issued an opinion letter specifically on the use of criminal databases and has taken the position that database searches do not comply with FCRA but could be used as a pre-screening tool to “generate leads,” and should be used for that purpose only and that using information of this type for employment purposes violates Section 613(a)(2) of the Fair Credit Reporting Act

The following states and some others provide limited information in the multi-state criminal background check:

For example, California and Illinois provide records from only about 50 percent of the counties in the state but since these non-reporting counties include the largest and most populous counties, as many as 80 percent of the criminal records are actually not included in the results. California (Only about half the counties are included)

Illinois (Only about half the counties are included)


New Hampshire (Department Of Corrections Only)

New York (Department Of Corrections Only)

Ohio (Only about half the counties are included)



National Employment Screening makes no claims as to the completeness of this data or that data from all states or jurisdictions is included. Records contained in reports compiled from these databases may not contain complete or accurate or the most current or sufficient identifying information to be considered reliable and should not be used by themselves to recommend or not recommend any individual for employment.
