How we create the industry’s best background check
Too much is never enough when it comes to keeping your members safe and your organization protected.
Every NCSI background check includes:
By verifying a subject’s name, date of birth, address history, and Social Security Number, we help eliminate the possibility of fake and misleading information.
Local county search
We perform extensive county and state criminal record searches to look for misdemeanor and felony records. Based on address history, multiple searches of local jurisdictions will be conducted.
National criminal record search
We complete two multi-jurisdictional criminal database searches covering 50 states, Guam, and Puerto Rico, and Washington D.C. Our search looks at approximately 2 billion records per provider and includes an alias search.
Sex offender registry
We investigate two sex offender registry database searches covering every U.S. state and territory.
FBI and international wanted lists
We look at high-level criminal data provided by partner countries to search for wanted foreign nationals, international sex offenders, and traffickers.
Hands-on personal review
Every background check is personally reviewed for accuracy by one of our safety experts.
