County-Level Searches: SterlingONE conducts criminal record searches at the county-level for any jurisdictions in the United States wherein a state central repository does not exist or the repository has been determined to provide unreliable or inconsistent data results. Obtained information (per state laws) includes: 5, 7, 10, 15 year histories for Felony and Misdemeanor convictions. Deferred cases and pending cases are reported (where allowed by state law). Turnaround time ranges from 24-36 hours for clear records and 24-72 hours when criminal records are found.
Statewide-Level Searches: SterlingONE conducts statewide-level searches in 22 states where the data has been found to be accurate, timely, and more cost efficient than pursuing county-level records. Obtained information (per state laws) includes: 5, 7, 10, 15 year histories for Felony and Misdemeanor convictions, deferred cases and pending cases are reported (where allowed by state law). Turnaround time ranges from 4-36 hours for clear records and 24-72 hours when criminal records are found.
We typically recommend our customers run the most thorough searches possible, which would be based on a trace of an applicant's SSN, though it is possible to run criminal searches without an SSN.
SterlingONE compiles public record data from multiple sources, which typically include local, county, state and federal court repositories, state department of corrections and state sex offender registries.
SterlingONE maintains active updates daily, weekly and monthly, depending on the data source, but cannot absolutely guarantee all public records from all jurisdictions throughout the United States will be available; this would be impossible.
For example, the FBI's national crime information center (NCIC) currently maintains 57 percent of the criminal record information available within the United States, even though most law enforcement agencies are mandated to report to the FBI. Therefore, the NCIC is deficient and cannot guarantee a complete criminal background search for all jurisdictions across the United States.
The database search does provide a cost-effective way for consumers to do a general overall check that casts a wide net and is very inexpensive without having to provide signed releases and/or fingerprint submissions to each jurisdiction across the US under legislative mandate. However, SterlingONE generally recommends the most thorough search, which is a combination of an instant search and on-premise searches leveraging an SSN and in areas determined relevant by an applicant's address history in order to increase hit rate and depth of results.
