County Criminal Records

Search all County Source-Level Records

Clearchecks offers a comprehensive County Criminal Search product. Leveraging data from the National Criminal Search, ClearChecks has access to 100% of counties across the United State, ensuring extensive coverage of over 3,000 counties. We conduct research across various county court systems to confirm and match records with the provided PII. Subsequently, each record undergoes meticulous review by our team to determine reportability, guaranteeing accuracy and reliability. Each court may have different processes for record storage and request handling; some provide immediate access through public kiosks, while others require clerk assistance, potentially causing delays.

Turnaround time may vary depending on the jurisdiction being searched. Some County Criminal searches may complete within 24-hours in jurisdictions with immediate access while clerk-assisted jurisdictions may take up to 3-5 business days. Our screening process strictly follows FCRA guidelines to maintain legal compliance. With ClearChecks, you can trust that you will receive a comprehensive background screening that enhances workplace safety, mitigates risks, and ensures regulatory compliance.
