Database search with verification of hits at the source

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.

How does it work?

The system goes through the following steps to create the report for a US OneVERIFY:

01- With a full name including first, middle, and last name, and the subject's date of birth we search our criminal database.

02- Clear results are reported instantly, but when we find a hit, our system assigns a case to our public record research department to verify the details of the record with the source.

03- If the source has the exact same information, we complete the search and finalize the report. But if our verification methods uncover additional or updated information on the record we are verifying, we will include that information on the final report.

What is the scope and turnaround time of the US OneVERIFY check? offers you one of the largest criminal conviction database in the industry. Clear results are returned instantly, while verification of hits with the source typically takes between 1-3 business days.

Common questions about US OneVERIFY

Is a verified search still instant?

Because California, Connecticut, Maine, Minnesota and Indiana currently require us and other consumer reporting agencies to verify criminal matches found during our instant database search directly with the source before reporting them, we are prevented from providing criminal records instantly in these four states. Is a verified search still an instant search? Yes and no. A criminal record search using our US OneVERIFY search option, will still return clear results back instantly, but when we discover criminal records that are a possible match, the system automatically changes the status to ‘in progress’ while our quality assurance department verifies each hit with the respective source. Depending on the number of hits and the response time from each search this can take a few days. Our average turnaround time for a verified search that initially has hits, is 1-3 business days.
