State Criminal Records


The State Criminal check searches state law enforcement agency repositories in the United States, which typically contain misdemeanors, felonies and traffic offenses, committed by an individual. While state criminal searches can add value, the amount and quality of information provided may vary by jurisdiction. For example, some states offer access to all jurisdictions reporting all convictions with daily updates whereas some state repositories do not include every county or update their records on a regular basis. Additionally, California does not have a statewide search available for employment purposes at this time.

Results Guidelines
Reporting must comply with the Fair Credit Reporting Act and any applicable state laws. All felony convictions, misdemeanor convictions, and related activity on record are also reported. Open arrest warrants, cases awaiting trial, and charges for failure to appear are also included when available and legally reportable. Laws vary state to state regarding criminal record use in hiring decisions; thus, consultation with qualified legal counsel is highly recommended.
