SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER TRACE
The applicant's social security number is traced through a vast resource of more than 400 data sources including the national credit bureaus.  This extremely useful tool is imperative in uncovering any additional names, aliases or addresses that the applicant may have utilized, but chose not to reveal during the application process.  Furthermore, when combined with a criminal history, the social security trace is invaluable in making sure all known names and jurisdictions are encompassed while conducting the search.
 
Secondly, the trace will validate the year and state in which the Social Security Administration issued the number.  This information can be useful in uncovering potentially fraudulent social security numbers.

NATIONAL CRIMINAL DATABASE
The National Criminal Database is a "third party" database which comprises records obtained from the state Department of Corrections and the Administrative Office of the Courts, where available. Coverage areas and update schedules vary by jurisdiction. Coverage details are available at http://www.trudiligence.com/docs/nationalcriminalcoverage.pdf.

National database systems are dependent upon getting their data from the individual state and county jurisdictions. If an individual state or county does not update its data to the national system on a regular basis, or at all for that matter, the system may have holes in its coverage area. Therefore, national database records should be used only as a tool to uncover areas requiring additional research.

TruDiligence does not recommend the use of national database records as a standalone search nor a means of promoting due diligence in screening practices or maintaining compliance with the Fair Credit Reporting Act. County-level courthouse records are recommended for this purpose.

*IMPORTANT NOTE: Should you choose to use the National Criminal Database as a broad search tool and a record is found, the search results automatically will be validated with a direct search of the source county courthouse records. This validation is required by the Fair Credit Reporting Act Sections 607 and 613 to ensure accuracy of the result provided by the "third party" database. Any additional cost associated with this process will be billed at published rates which currently are $8.00 and up for county-level court record verification.

A "no record" result will turn around instantly however, when this verification on "yes record hits" is required the results of the completed search will be delayed by 24 - 72 hours while the verification search completes.

STATE LEVEL ARREST RECORDS
When you are conducting a prescreen background investigation, it is of utmost importance to obtain a criminal history. These searches typically fall in two main categories: arrest records and court records. The use of each category has its strengths and weaknesses, so it's important for you to evaluate what you are trying to achieve to determine which is best for your application.
 
Arrest records usually are housed at the state level in a databank maintained by the governing judicial body within each state. Many of these systems are fingerprint driven, meaning when an individual is arrested and fingerprinted those fingerprints are submitted to the state databank for tracking purposes. The records that subsequently are pulled indicate an individual's arrest record based on those fingerprint submissions.
 
If an illegible fingerprint card is submitted, the state will return it to be redone. By then, the subject already may have been released from custody and is not available to be re-fingerprinted. Subsequently, there will not be a record of this arrest in the system.
 
The primary disadvantage to most arrest record systems is they do not contain disposition information on the charges. This means you will not know if the person was convicted of the crime for which he was arrested. However, using arrest records also can be an advantage. The arrest record in itself may show a pattern that could pose a potential concern, depending on the position for which your applicant is applying. This pattern could be critically important, regardless of whether a conviction was entered, depending on the position you're trying to fill.
 
Finally, statewide records are not available in all states, and some states have lengthy turnaround times that may cause their use to be ineffective for your purposes. Therefore, it is imperative that you determine if arrest records will best suit your needs. All criminal searches are on a per-name, per-jurisdiction-searched basis.
 
Important Note: The validity of statewide systems also can be dependent upon their ability to get data from individual county jurisdictions. If a county does not update its data to the statewide system on a regular basis, or at all for that matter, the statewide system may have holes in its coverage area. Therefore, statewide records should be used only as a cursory review of an applicant's record. TruDiligence does not recommend the use of statewide records as a means of promoting due diligence in hiring practices or maintaining compliance with the Fair Credit Reporting Act. County-level courthouse records are recommended for this purpose.
 
Statewide records are not available in all states, because some states restrict access to their statewide databases to law enforcement personnel only. The states currently available are listed with their respective prices and are priced on a per-name basis. The turnaround times quoted are averages and may vary depending on state backlog; therefore, they cannot be guaranteed.

CREDIT REPORT
A credit report can be ordered for employment screening purposes.  Only businesses with a registered business entity and operating location can be approved.  An onsite inspection and additional vetting of your account is required during setup. There is a one-time setup fee of $99.00 for access to credit reports, which covers the cost of the onsite inspection.  Once approved for access, this report will contain a full disclosure of the applicant's financial background and will detail information on all trade accounts including date opened, credit limit, balance and payment history.  The report also will contain a record of any delinquent accounts, collection accounts, bankruptcy and judgments.
