Background Checks

Civil and Criminal Background Searches


We search through public record databases across the country to gather information necessary for your employment decisions.

Department of Corrections (DOC)

This includes data from state facilities regarding current and released inmates, parolees, and probationers. We do not return these records on the actual client reports; however, they are included in the data and can be used as references for further investigation.

Criminal Information Bureau (CIB)

The results of this search contain criminal records and as well as traffic records. Information may include convictions, adjudication withheld, deferrals, first offender, pre-trial intervention and some traffic violations. This also includes DOC and sex offender information.

Sex Offender Registry (SOR)

Data comes from all 50 states along with many U.S. territories and tribes.

State Central Criminal Repositories

Felony and misdemeanor charges or convictions are extraced from state law enforcement or the Adminitrative Office of the Courts, including all counties within a state. Most of these searches produce results in less than one day.

County Court Researcher Network

With a network of over 3,000 researchers throughout the U.S., we are able to provide the best results even if counties or municipalities do not have digital records that can be accessed online.

Federal District Courts

Searching Constitutional and Federal Law crimes such as tax evasion, embezzlement, bank robbery, kidnapping, and mail fraud can help provide additional character information for a candidate during the application process.

Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC)/Patriot Act

This report searches 80 national and international security and sanctions lists including: Office of the Inspector General (OIG), Health and Human Services Exclusions List, Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC), Specially Designated Nationals List, Interpol Fugitives List, FBI Most Wanted List, and Terrorist Watch List. 

These lists include individuals and businesses involved in terrorist activities, money laundering, illegal imports, fraud against government agencies, violations of federal banking regulations and fugitives from justice.

Fraud and Abuse Control Information System (FACIS®)

This is the most robust search option for healthcare professionals. FACIS® provides information on healthcare individuals and entities excluded from federal healthcare programs (Medicare, Medicaid, etc.) as well as adverse actions taken by licensing boards and certification agencies of state governments in all 50 states.


FACIS® reduces risk by identifying individuals involved in medical malpractice, negligent credentialing and/or privileging, vicarious liability and corporate negligence suits and whistleblower actions
