Criminal Background Checks & Record Validation

Uncover criminal backgrounds

When conducting criminal background checks, reporting the proper information on your applicants is essential. That’s why our search process includes validating all of our criminal products.

IntelliCorp’s criminal search procedure uses our propriety database, IntelliSearch technology and SuperSearch product to check local and national sources for potential records and make county level recommendations. To further refine the search process, we apply the appropriate State and Federal FCRA filters based on your applicant’s home address and state of employment or volunteerism.

Should any criminal records be identified, we return to the source of the data and verify the information to ensure we have the latest updates regarding your applicant’s history. Once the records have been validated, access to the background screening results will be available. By doing so, you can be confident that an FCRA compliant search has been performed, which provides you with additional value and increased assurance when making hiring and recruiting decisions.

Validated Standard & Preferred Package Overview

As a starting point for conducting comprehensive background checks, IntelliCorp offers two basic screening packages (Standard and Preferred).  

We also offer a wide variety of additional products and services that you can add on to your package (such as education/employment/reference verifications, credit reports, drug testing, motor vehicle reports and many more). This option is designed to meet your specific hiring requirements by allowing you to layer services for different positions as well as various levels of job responsibilities. Some products are available a-la-carte.

Criminal Product Descriptions

Criminal SuperSearch
The Criminal SuperSearch produces a multi-state report of criminal records, which includes the District of Columbia. Each Criminal SuperSearch report may contain felony and misdemeanor records, sex-offender records, inmate records, and arrest information.

Single County Searches
Not conducting single county searches increases the chances of missing information on an applicant and exposes business and organizations to many types of risk that could be costly. Additionally, database searches do not contain all criminal record information for every individual across the country, and it is imperative to check each identified source to obtain a fully comprehensive picture of an applicant.

IntelliCorp’s background check process automatically incorporates all single county recommendations where a subject has lived (either within the last seven or ten years depending on your package), based on a Social Security number trace. As a result, should subject information be identified that is not covered in our database (Criminal Search) any single county recommendations will be completed. This helps to ensure we have the most recent information on the subject prior to sending a report back to you.

The report provides criminal records held at the county level. Reports generally include felony and/or misdemeanor records, and contain complete case information including defendant information (defendant name, DOB, and address); case information (case number, filed date, disposition, disposition date, and sentence); and criminal charge information (statute section, offense description, and charge disposition). The industry standard for a single county criminal record search is 7 years, but we go back at least 10 years where not restricted by FCRA regulations.

Sex Offender Registry
Product provides publicly available sex offender information from all states. It also includes information from the District of Columbia and Guam. Some states may also include violent offender information. Results will vary according to state.

Inmate and Criminal Records

Records include currently incarcerated and release inmates. Information in reports will vary depending on the state.
