A search covering any criminal violations handled at the state or county level, including all misdemeanor and felony violations that do not fall under federal jurisdiction.
A search covering criminal violations committed outside of the United States. Each country and jurisdiction within the same country disseminate information differently. The turnaround time can be very lengthy.

A search for Most Wanted criminal on the International Police Organization or INTERPOL, is an intergovernmental organization facilitating international police cooperation.
A sweeping search of over 300 million public record sources to uncover criminal activity that has occurred outside of the areas indicated by the SSN/Address Trace. (This can be particularly valuable if an individual committed a crime somewhere other than their state or county of residence.) Note: this search cannot be used as a stand-alone search as each state and county court reports into this database at their own discretion using their individual dissemination practices.
A search to confirm whether or not the applicant has ever been incarcerated, placed on probation, or on parole in the criminal justice system.
A search focused on determining if the individual is registered on the state or national sex offender registries. By law, all states must report into the National Sex Offender Registry. The registry only allows the public access to Level 3 offender information. Level 3 sex offenders pose the highest risk to reoffend, most have committed more than one crime and have exhibited predatory characteristics.
A search of the CBI for criminal activity. This is not a good stand alone search to use. Much of the information found in the CBI is arrest records which, under law, cannot be used against an individual when making a hiring decision.
