County Criminal Searches

County Criminal Searches determine if a candidate has a felony, misdemeanor or infraction offense within a specific county.

This type of search covers more than 3,300 county courthouses locating records disposed of in superior, upper, lower, and/or municipal level courts. Reports contain legally reportable information, typically including the date of arrest and filing, charges, level of charges, disposition date, final disposition, and any applicable sentence or penalty. Application Verification’s Program Specialists conduct strict quality control procedures on each criminal record before it reports back to our clients.

Multi-State Criminal Search

Multi-State Criminal Searches are a valuable complement to a criminal records search, available only in conjunction with county criminal record investigations to confirm convictions. Felony and misdemeanor charges are subject to a thorough investigation.


Federal Criminal Searches

Federal Criminal Searches identify criminal activity prosecuted through the federal court system, not visible in lower court searches. Typical violations include tax evasion, embezzlement, bank robbery, kidnapping, mail fraud, and other federal statutes.


I-9 Verification

The I-9 Verification validates if a potential candidate’s social security and/or immigration documents are valid, in turn decreasing human errors in completing I-9 forms in a cost-effective process.


Educational Validation

Educational Validation confirms attendance dates, diploma earned, degree/certificate awarded, and additional information as available.


Credit Reporting

Credit Reports may offer insight into a potential candidate’s reliability by providing a sense of their personal responsibility. Credit Reports include credit information, public filings, account standing with creditors, and previous address history.

Due to strict guidelines controlled by the FCRA on the handling of credit reports, Application Verification provides PEER, with FICO score and without FICO score.


DMV Motor Vehicle Record Checks

The Department of Motor Vehicle Checks, also known as Motor Vehicle Records, shows a comprehensive overview of a candidate’s driving history. Records highlight driving history over the past 3-7 years and are available in all 50 states and Washington D.C. Reports include all personal identifiers as well as traffic offenses and citations.


Sex Offender Registry Check

The Sex Offender Registry Check searches individuals in all 50 states who have committed crimes of a sexual nature. By performing a Sex Offender Registry Check on potential candidates, your company’s risk of workplace violence and potential negligent hiring or retention lawsuits reduce.

Per HSPD-6, only individuals who are known or reasonably suspected to be or have been engaged in conduct constituting, in preparation for, in aid of, or related to terrorism are included in the database.
