Federal Criminal Record Search
Federal criminal law differs from the state criminal law, and offenses are generally more serious: terrorism, embezzlement, drug trafficking, kidnapping, bank robbery, crimes committed across state lines, crimes against the federal government, etc. A Federal Criminal search expands the criminal background check to include federal crimes. Federal District court cases are searched on a state by state basis.
Use It To:
- Broaden search scope to include all Federal criminal records.
- Identify a criminal past that would preclude an applicant from a position, either because of job-relatedness or regulatory requirement.
Recommended: If your applicant is being considered for an executive position, or if your company requires a more comprehensive background screening.
Necessary Information: Applicant’s name and DOB.
Turnaround Time: Same business day, unless a name match requires additional research.
