What is a Federal Background Check?

What is a Federal Background Check?

A Federal criminal background check will show you if an applicant has committed any crimes at the federal level. Some applicants move around to try and cover up their crimes. However Federal criminal records will still appear on this report because they are not bound by state or county lines. Keep in mind that Federal criminal history WILL NOT show up on a national background database, state database, or county background checks. Therefore, it’s imperative to screen your applicant at the federal level. Fedeal Criminal Search

Why is this needed?

Keeping our employees, our companies, our investments, and our community safe is our responsibility.

IT STARTS WITH YOU!

Landlords and Employers should be educated on what crimes are often overlooked. A Federal Background Check is an important part of due diligence.

Is a National Background Check the same as a Federal Background Check?

No, these are commonly mistaken as the same thing. A national database, or multistate database consist of State, County, and Municpal Records. For instance, if a person gets caught with drugs in their hometown, they are tried at the state and county level. If that same person trafficks drugs across state lines, now they will be tried in a Federal Court of Law.

How do I know which crimes are a Federal Crimes?

Some crimes that would normally fall under state, county or district Jurisdiction may be tried on a federal level depending on the severity of the crime or if a Federal law enforcement agency determines it. If a crime has been committed on U.S. Federal property or on an Indian reservation it will be tried at a the Federal Level.
