Level 1 – Hourly/Entry Level:

Our Level 1 pre-employment misdemeanor or felony criminal record search is appropriate for all employees.   Crimcheck utilizes a social security number trace to identify an applicant’s possible residential history.  Next, a search for criminal records is conducted in the applicable jurisdictions identified on the social security number trace.  Both misdemeanor and felony convictions occurring in the last seven years are reported. A nationwide sexual offender search is also included with this search. All packages can be customized to fit any need – see our services page to view all Crimcheck products.

Products included in the Level 1 background check from Crimcheck:

Misdemeanor Criminal Record Search

Courts at the municipal level hold the records for misdemeanor criminal records. The Level 1 background check from Crimcheck searches the courts at cities that are identified as prior residences. Examples of some Misdemeanor criminal records that can be discovered in a Misdemeanor search include:

  • Petty Theft
  • Simple Assault
  • Speeding to Elude Arrest
  • Trespass
  • Possession of Stolen Goods

One very important fact to keep in mind is that it is sometimes possible for a felony charge to be reduced to a misdemeanor charge. This makes it crucial that a misdemeanor search be included in a basic background check.

The main difference between misdemeanor and felony crimes is the type of penalty that is associated with each.  Misdemeanors usually result in jail sentences for a maximum of one year.  The sentence for a misdemeanor will usually be served in a local or county jail.

Felony charges can result in imprisonment for greater than one year.  The sentence will normally be served in a prison rather than a county or city jail.

Sexual Offender Database Search

Crimcheck utilizes the only national database that links public state, territorial, and tribal sex offender registries from one national search.  Crimcheck searches represent the most up-to-date information as provided by each Jurisdiction.

Conducting a sexual offender national database search as part of your background check process is a vital element to protecting your employees and securing a safe workplace.  Additionally, a sexual offender database search protects your clients and customers and is another layer of protection to protect your company from negligent hiring lawsuits.

Aside from the obvious need for employers to conduct sexual offender searches, there are many private organizations that should conduct sexual offender searches as part of their pre-employment screening process.  Churches, schools, volunteers, coaches, troop leaders, babysitters and many other less formal positions should all receive a thorough background check which includes a sexual offender database search.

Social Security Number Trace

Crimcheck utilizes a social security number trace as part of the Level 1 background check service package.  A social security number trace identifies locations that the applicant has lived, and allows for the proper court jurisdictions to be searched.  The information on a social security trace is accumulated from credit header information and the data is usually accumulated via public records such as home purchases, rentals, utility bills, etc.
