What Is the Criminal Offender Profile Summary?

Before you hire an applicant for a position with your company, it is essential to conduct a thorough background check to identify individuals with issues in their pasts that could be cause for concern. One essential component of a background check is a search for criminal convictions.

The Criminal Offender Profile Summary is a search tool that combs through criminal records from state and county jurisdictions in 41 states to identify individuals with criminal convictions. The search tool provides information about an applicant's record in a condensed, easy-to-read format. This will save you the time it would take to search through individual records for multiple jurisdictions.

The Criminal Offender Profile Summary draws information from several sources. It searches Proprietary Offender Data, Department of Corrections, Administrative Office of the Court (going back seven years), Department of Public Safety, Traffic Court, Sex Offender Registry, FBI Terrorist List, Federal/State/Local Wanted Fugitive Lists, and Office of Foreign Assets records. If the background check turns up any criminal convictions or other issues that should be cause for concern, that information will be included in the Criminal Offender Profile Summary.

Conducting a thorough background check is an essential part of the hiring process. It will enable you to identify applicants with records of criminal activity that could affect your business, your other employees, or your customers. Conducting a background check can save you from potential problems that you could face in the future if you were to unknowingly hire a person with a criminal past. Do your due diligence and obtain a Criminal Offender Profile Summary on all applicants before extending an offer of employment.
