Gold & Silver Background Checks

BlueRibbon offers a variety of criminal record check options including searches at the County, State, Federal courts.

County Criminal Record Check - Primary Source
Direct searches are performed of county court records for both misdemeanor and felony criminal cases. Criminal Record Searches include the current status or final outcome depending on state-specific legislation and FCRA requirements.

Federal Criminal Record Check - Primary Source
A Federal Criminal Record Check reports federal crimes, which have often crossed state borders. This method is typically used for screening upper-level positions to supplement County and State Criminal Record Checks. There are 11 federal districts within the United States.

Sex Offender Registry Search - Collection of State Registries
Protect the vulnerable people you serve or employ. Sex Offender Registry Search identifies sex offenders and other violent criminals.

Social Security Number Trace - Criminal Record Locator
Social Security Number Trace identifies individuals, their residential addresses history, and reported aliases based on a database of 400 sources. The results of this search tool are used to broaden the scope of a background check to include jurisdictions and names beyond what the candidate has disclosed.

Enhanced Nationwide Criminal Database Search – Criminal Record Locator
The Enhanced Nationwide Criminal Database Search instantly searches State, County, and Corrections criminal record databases. Any jurisdictions identified are confirmed with a County Criminal Record Check.

Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC)
Through the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC), the U.S. Treasury administers and enforces economic and trade sanctions based on U.S. foreign policy and national security goals. If your background check includes this feature, we search this list to identify any potential sanctions against you.
