Criminal History

Statewide Criminal Reports

Statewide Criminal Comprehensive Reports combine multiple sources of information in a single search. Report information may include, but is not limited to, court-level felony records, court-level misdemeanor records, traffic records, department of corrections data, and information from state sex-offender registries.


Motor Vehicle Report

You need to know who's behind the wheel, especially when transporting goods, services and people. Companies should order driving history reports for all employees who drive company or personal vehicles for business. Our Motor Vehicle Reports (MVRs) provide a comprehensive review of individual driving records, including offenses and citations.  You get timely, comprehensive and reliable reports on your applicant's driving history, including:

  • Driver's license information

  • Driving restrictions, such as glasses and hearing aids
  • Special endorsements, including tank and hazardous materials


Criminal Search for a Single Parish

This report provides criminal records held at the county level. Reports generally include felony and/or misdemeanor records. A single county search is especially valuable when you need to perform a more comprehensive or current database search. The industry standard for a single parish criminal record search is 7 years, although older information may be returned if available from the record source.


Inmate Records

Inmate Records provide information from each state's Department of Corrections. Reports can include information on an individual's probation, parole and give active or inactive status within a state facility. Information in reports will vary depending on the state.


Arrest Records

Arrest Records are available in some states. This information can help determine if you should run a criminal search for a single county. Note: You should not make hiring decisions based solely on arrest records.



Bankruptcies are a matter of public record and may appear on an individual's credit report. The Federal Bankruptcy Act prohibits employers from discriminating against applicants because they have filed for bankruptcy.



Search and identify all civil lien and judgment filings for your search subject, job candidate, or potential business partner. This will identify all plaintiffs, defendants and liability amount. This is a vital search for managerial and executive candidates, as well as a contractors, business partners, and vendors. Liens and Judgment searches will shed light on your subject's fiduciary responsibility.



This is a deal breaker every time. If a landlord had to forcibly remove a renter from the property, it was probably for non-payment of rent. If the eviction is for another reason, it could be for criminal activity or repeatedly disturbing the peace, offenses often worse than non-payment

Professional Affiliations and Licenses

In organizations where certain professions require specialized licenses, we can assist in verifying that an applicant or job candidate not only possesses the professional license, but that the license is in good standing. The professional license and certification verification is performed on a wide variety of state-issued professional licenses for nurses, doctors, lawyers, pharmacists, insurance agents, and many others.  This service confirms validity of a license or certification and can reveal any disciplinary actions taken.  


Property Foreclosures

If you're interested in work that involves money or handling a company's financial records, mortgage foreclosure and/or a bankruptcy filing may make you ineligible.


Uniform Commercial Code Filings (UCC)
