Criminal History

Quality Counts, Inc. recommends criminal searches to protect against workplace violence, employee theft, and other problems that may arise. Criminal searches are available nationwide. Criminal searches will include the charges, date of the offense as well of the conviction date, and sentencing information. We perform searches of current records from local county courts and state level courts. We also offer Federal Criminal searches. We recommend a search of all counties and/or states of residence and any aliases that are identified in an applicant’s Social Security Trace. Using our large network of resources, we access the most current information available and report felony and misdemeanor convictions based on applicable federal and state law.

Statewide Criminal Searches – Statewide Criminal searches report felony and misdemeanor convictions as well as pending charges based on federal and state reporting guidelines. The charges originate at the county level and are reported to the state repository. State Repositories are available in some states, but many provide partial or out-of-date information because they are not frequently updated. Except where the repository is updated daily, state repository searches should not replace county criminal searches.

Due to this we will not offer Statewide Criminal searches for every state, in order to provide you with the highest quality report possible. However, where statewide criminal searches are not available we will offer County Criminal searches.

County Criminal Searches – County Criminal searches also report felony and misdemeanor convictions as well as pending chares based on federal and state reporting guidelines. We utilize a network of court clerk researches to conduct these searches. County Criminal searches are available in every county in the United States.

Federal Criminal Searches – Federal Criminal searches report criminal complaints by the U.S. government for violation of federal laws. This includes but is not limited to: bank robbery, counterfeiting, tax evasion, embezzlement and drug trafficking. A person also may be tried in a federal court if they cross state lines during the commission of a crime
