Requires NAME (usually first and last) and DATE OF BIRTH

Criminal histories can be located without the date of birth but it may be necessary to know the date of birth to narrow the search.  A search for John Doe may reveal numerous hits for different people with the same name. 


About Criminal Histories:

Background checks provide businesses with extremely important tools. However, it is very important to be aware of the limitations inherent in background checks and the fact that a hit was not found via open records there is no guarantee that the person in question has no criminal history.  Be aware that there is no such thing as a national criminal records check. There is one "nationwide" criminal database, the FBI database, which is known as the NCIC (National Crime Information Center). The FBI database is NOT public record and cannot be legally accessed by anyone other than criminal justice agencies.

Statewide Criminal Checks
It is possible to search statewide for criminal records in some states. Generally state-wide records repositories only record felony convictions, or convictions that resulted in jail time. Misdemeanor records are not generally recorded in state record repositories, and do not generally result in jail time. Most often a criminal records search is done on a county by county basis.  The following states were covered in this criminal history search.
