  • Multi-State Sex and Violent Offender Records
    Comprised of a state level sex offender registry search from all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Guam and Puerto Rico, this database of over 10 million records contains currently registered violent and sex offenders with felony conviction records. The report may include the applicant’s name, date of birth, sex, eye color, height, weight, address, case number, comments, alias count, number of offenses, offense description, county or jurisdiction, arrest date, disposition, offense severity and number of incarcerations.


  • Criminal Information 
    Database of millions of records across the United States consisting of court records, incarceration records, prison/inmate records, probation/parole/release information, arrest data, wants and warrants, sex offender records, national and international watch lists and/or other proprietary sources.


  • National and International Watch Lists
    For those ordering the Nationwide Pro Search, the data includes a Homeland Security Search. This covers nearly 200 state, federal and international sanction and exclusion watch lists to assist users in their compliance with the USA Patriot Act and watch lists as provided by states, U.S. and foreign governments.


  • Alias Names
    Alias names searches are available on the Plus and Pro. Searching alias names is a great way to uncover information that an applicant might not have disclosed. Alias name searches use the information pulled from the Address Locator Report for any other name an applicant may have used. Then any aliases found are run through the Nationwide Criminal Database. Any hits are then verified by a live jurisdiction search.


*All searches include live verification of “hits.”
