Background Screening Verification

Background Screening Verification

Associate License: Second Level Screening

This level package checks the individual’s criminal history in the current county of their residence. While there are no set years of history attached to this search, Verified Volunteers will be provided information for as many as 40 years ago. The system then checks against a nationwide database of criminal history in an attempt to ID further records where an individual has lived or worked – again with no set history behind this search.

Gold License: Third Level Screening

A search for any criminal records in all county and state jurisdictions of the coach/administrator last 7 years of address history. Then it checks both a nationwide criminal database of over 350 million records and a proprietary nationwide arrest record database to identify any further records in places the coach/administrator has lived and/or visited. The Complete Criminal Record Locator Search searches alias and maiden names in addition to the coach/administrator’s primary name.

While this search is seven years of address history, it could return results as far back as legally possible. The majority of states follow the Federal Reporting Guidelines, which allow convictions to be reported with no time limit and non-convictions to be reported for 7 years from the arrest date. The rest (CA, KS, MA, MD, MT, NH, NM, NY & WA), allow a minimum of 7 years of conviction data to be reported, but limit or exclude non-conviction data.
