A state-based criminal search pulls criminal records from a database or repository in a given state. Counties and jurisdictions throughout the state typically report into these central repositories, making state checks beneficial for widening the scope of a pre-employment background screening. This Mississippi background check searches the statewide criminal history database maintained by the Criminal Information Center within the Mississippi Department of Public Safety.
The check will yield criminal record information from any counties that report to the Department of Health repository—a list which may include Hinds County, Harrison County, and DeSoto County. At backgroundchecks.com, we can currently process state criminal checks in 45 states, including Mississippi.
