National Criminal Database Scan

This search locates potential criminal records with its nationwide scope. A National Criminal Database Search draws from over 525 million records from thousands of jurisdictions, including counties, department of corrections (DOC), administrative office of courts (AOC), and offender registries from all 50 states, plus Washington DC, Guam, and Puerto Rico.

With a national criminal database search you can:

  • Identify jurisdictions on a broader scale where a person may have a criminal record
  • Search beyond states and counties where a candidate has worked, lived or attended school

National criminal database search sources include, but are not limited to:

  • Criminal records from state record repositories and some county and township courts
  • Departments of correction and probation
  • Sex offender registries from all 50 states, Washington, D.C., and Guam
  • Information from state-level agencies, Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) and the FBI
  • Local, state and federal fugitive lists
