Criminal Record Searches

CLS Background Investigations begins all of our criminal records research with the CLS National Database Search or the CLS National (Alias). These anchor components search all records available online almost instantly. This broad net cast over the entire United States is best described as an inch deep and a mile wide and is estimated to cover approximately 400 million records and counting. We truly believe it to be the best in the industry.

In compliance with all FCRA rules and regulations, as well as our own standards, we then follow-up the National with county level courthouse searches in the appropriate identified jurisdictions. This process, best described as an inch wide and a mile deep, narrows down the process to ensure the most accurate results in the background industry.
