County Criminal

Based on the candidate’s address history, the County Criminal Search is considered the most accurate and comprehensive criminal background search.

We utilize public access terminals or “hand pulled” criminal searches to directly examine county criminal felony and/or misdemeanor court records, rather than using an aggregated criminal database. Our system will auto-populate any counties lived for the past 7 years, based on the SSN Trace results pulled prior.
