National Criminal Records: Screen for National Criminal Records  DataCheck - Home

National Criminal Records

When one thinks of the word “National”, in National Criminal Records, one might think this means that they are getting every criminal record in every county nationwide. Be aware, there is NO national criminal database available to background screening companies or individuals. There is, however, a National Criminal Record Database, which is a database comprised of many criminal records covering county criminal records, prison records, sex offender records, and incarceration records in many prisons. Although it is nationwide in scope, it will not provide you with ALL criminal records throughout the United States. It is suggested that in order to do your “due diligence” when hiring that you do this national search as it currently is the best available search national search. However, never let it replace a county criminal search when conducting criminal records searches on job applicants. Use this national search as an added tool, as many times it will reveal criminal records.

While most national criminal background checks reveal clean records, it is still an essential task to perform this check. Discovering even one incidence of criminal misconduct can take a candidate out of the running for an important position. Finding just one new piece of information about a candidate can turn an entire hiring session on its head, to the company's benefit.
