CI's FEDERAL CRIMINAL inquiry is a powerful search, generated for each name and address attributed to the subject based on our SSN & Address Information inquiry. Due to compliance standards, federal criminal searches are typically run for the past 7-10 years at the client's discretion. CI's FEDERAL CRIMINAL search is unique in that it employs additional verification elements via the subject's date of birth and social security number to eliminate false hits. False hits frequently occur when a subject has a common name.
A FEDERAL CRIMINAL inquiry is an important step for eliminating an employer's liability for negligent hiring. Federal searches often reveal serious violations of federal law that state or county searches do not encompass. Examples of federal crimes include drug trafficking, embezzlement, carjacking, kidnapping and many crimes committed across state lines.
