Details of this search

A database search of over 190 million records is performed looking for criminal records on your applicant using Name and Date of Birth. Next, we conduct a more detailed local-level confirmation search on any results found and report any felony or misdemeanor records within the last 7 years. This two-step process gives you a fast response when no match is found, and if we do report a record, the information is timely, accurate and complete. With our database search, you’ll have the added reassurance of knowing that both you and HireRight are following state and federal compliance laws.
