Our Mission Statement
Our mission is to provide customers with the most comprehensive background check available in a timely manner, and at affordable rates by qualified staff. Our vision is to research and identify every available state and county criminal history court database in the nation. Most of the state and county criminal history databases we use have direct access to the county court clerks office. We use statewide police databases if available and requested by our customers. If no direct county court clerk access is unavailable we may use the statewide law enforcement databases or send out court retrievers directly into those counties to search for any misdemeanor and felony county criminal court record. In most cases our company offers a comprehensive background check by qualified staff in 24 to 72 hours excluding weekends and holidays at a cost of $12.00 for a statewide search and $25.00 for a nationwide search.
Our company currently has statewide felony and misdemeanor access in the states of Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Illinois, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, and Wisconsin. We offer a statewide misdemeanor and felony search in twenty-five of the states listed for $12.00.
Background Investigations, Inc. researches the criminal history of job applicants on a local, state, and nationwide basis. To accomplish this we go directly to the court docket to determine if a criminal conviction record exists for misdemeanors, gross misdemeanors, and felonies.
It is a requirement of state and federal law for employers to obtain a signed release from employment applicants prior to conducting a background check. At this time the employer can request the employment applicant complete a thorough pre-employment form listing his or her current and prior counties of residence within the past seven years. Our company checks for conviction history in the counties the applicant discloses and where we determine the applicant has lived for the past seven years.
In most circumstances, the response turnaround on criminal history checks is 24 to 72 hours, excluding weekends and holidays. The prospective employee completes a standard job application form along with a detailed release of information form. The release of information form is faxed, emailed, or submitted to our company over a secured login client website. Responses are retrieved by fax, email, or using our secure website.
