With one search, you can comb more than 650 million criminal records from counties, department of corrections (DOC), administrative office of courts (AOC), and offender registries from all 50 states, plus Washington DC, Guam, and Puerto Rico. Also included are national and international terrorism sources and more than 10 million photos. A US OneSEARCH check provides the data you want, the quality you demand and the updates that ensure you get the best possible information.
Instead of ordering a US OneSEARCH check that searches for records across all 50 states, plus Washington DC, Guam, and Puerto Rico, you can restrict the search to a single state. And if you only want to search a part of the United States, we offer regionalized OneSEARCH packages. You get the same quality data from counties, states and offender registries, but can custom design your search to include up to 5 states.
backgroundchecks.com offers you one of the largest criminal conviction databases in the industry. The results are returned instantly, unless the order contains a request to verify matching records with the source, before reporting them.
Because California, Connecticut, Maine, Minnesota and Indiana currently require us to verify criminal matches found during our instant search directly at the source before reporting them, we are prevented from providing criminal records instantly in these five states.

Do take into account that while our goal is to update our instant database with new counties and new county records regularly, it is possible that a traditional on-premise court house search would provide more up-to-date information and could, for example, show that a criminal record with a pending case status in our instant data base has been recently dismissed.

Which is right for your needs? Both searches comb through our proprietary national criminal database. The database contains over 650 million criminal records from a broad list of sources, including these:
The US AliasSEARCH is more comprehensive because it combines the US OneSEARCH with alias names sourced from a trace of social security number.
So the instant US AliasSEARCH requires a social security number.
This additional information enables a more thorough and in-depth search of your subject.
Us OneSEARCH only requires the subjects full name, address, and DOB.
An instant criminal search is only as accurate as the state, local or federal agency reporting the data. We have limited control in their update frequency as it is set by and varies by each data source’ this ranges from as frequently as daily to semi-annually. For a source specific update frequency we recommend you explore our interactive coverage map, which lists the update frequency in the source descriptions.
With that said, data strength is one of many aspects that sets us apart from our competitors and we go to great lengths to acquire and maintain our data and pride ourselves on typically updating our database with new records within five days of receipt. Moreover, criminal records and subject demographics will vary based on the data source. For instance, some data sources provide full dates of birth while others may only provide year of birth or none at all. Information associated with criminal records also varies such as: plea, disposition, degree of offense, etc… In some cases the data source provides obscure or very few details about the record.
There are several reasons why 0 records might be found in a database search.
