How our screenings compare to discount services

When it comes to the safety of children, we believe that choosing a discount over quality isn’t a risk worth taking. Database-only screenings are often available at discounted rates, but you need to be aware of the pivotal information they may miss.

Five reasons to partner with us

1. No one digs deeper

We search more than twice the number of records than other providers—uncovering pivotal information other screenings may miss—including two independent multi-jurisdictional searches, containing over 800 million records. 

2. We screen to your criteria

We’ll make sure you only see the search results you need to make a decision. We tailor our screens according to your criteria and can help formulate parameters if needed.

3. Fair Credit Reporting Act compliant

We’ll ensure that notices are delivered to your applicants in a timely manner to help you stay in compliance with the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA).

4. All-in-one pricing

We use flat-rate pricing to make budgeting easy and provide consistency. While other providers may have additional fees that are passed on to you, our pricing includes all fees from local sources. 

5. Safe Sport Act of 2017 compliant

If you are running community athletic programs, we can help you stay Safe Sport Act compliant, packaging abuse prevention training with your background screening program.

We catch what discount screenings miss

According to an internal case study, we found 46% more criminal records than database-only searches, including:

• Sex offenses

• Violent crimes

• Felony drug crimes

• Multiple drug & alcohol offenses

"The staff at NCSI are always helpful, friendly, and knowledgeable. I would recommend NCSI to any volunteer-driven organization that wants to ensure their agency and applicant a peace of mind."
