Criminal Records

Background check and employment screening for businesses and individuals.

Criminal Records

In many instances, Criminal Record Checks are the foundation of a
comprehensive Background Check. Although like the phrase “Background Checks”,
Criminal Record Checks are also a bit more involved than the phrase itself.

As it relates to Criminal Records, the United States is divided into Districts, States, Counties and Municipalities based on the jurisdiction that prosecutes and oversees those criminal cases and violations. Some of those jurisdictions DO NOT overlap, correspond or reciprocate the information they house to the other jurisdictions.

DDS has the expertise to council and guide our clients through the educational
process and make it easy to understand why and how to determine which jurisdictions should
be checked for Criminal Records to ensure that Criminal Record Checks are a compliant and comprehensive part of your overall employment due diligence program.

To help you understand the differences, let’s break it up into the general
3 Jurisdictions described below.
