Search Descriptions


7-Year Unlimited County Search

A Social Security Trace report automatically pre-pulls and searches all counties returned on the SSN Trace for the primary name entered, showing addresses for the past 7 years in counties of residence. This is the most cost effective way to run multiple county searches, since searches for all prepopulated counties are run for one controlled cost. This is a non-instant search and turnaround time varies between 1-10 days depending on the county(s) being searched.



(Commercial Driver’s License Information System) Search of database maintained by the American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators to ensure single license issuance nationwide. Enables employers to comply with Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) requirements and helps eliminate a candidate who does not hold a valid Commercial Driver’s license. This search provides name, DOB, S.S. # match, AKA information, present jurisdictional state and license number and up to three previously held CDL numbers.


Criminal Search – Single County

Criminal record search in any U.S. County, via the Clerk of Courts Office in the specific county responsible for the applicant’s current and/or former resident and/or work addresses. Searches felony and/or misdemeanor indexes (involving statutory offenses) for the past 7 years. Multiple names and/or addresses require separate searches. PLEASE NOTE: Results take longer than InstaCriminal searches but are more in-depth and detailed.


Education Verification

A verification specialist will contact the school, college, university, or other educational institution or agency that granted the degree or certificate. The education verification report will include dates of attendance, degree, major or program, and graduation date, if applicable.

This database is compiled from counties, Department of Corrections (DOC), Administration of the Court (AOC), and state sex offender registries from across the country. Also included in each search are national and international terrorism sources such as Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC). This search includes the National Sex & Violent Offender Database, P.R.I.O.R.S. and the Foreign Nationals Database.

Certain information from Colorado courts and law enforcement may fail to appear on a national criminal search. If you are running a national criminal search and need in-depth data from Colorado, we suggest you also run a single-state Colorado search.

The single-state Colorado search returns sex offender registry information only from Colorado. (Other single state searches return information from national registries.) Please take that into account if you run a single-state Colorado search and require National Sex & Violent Offender Database information as well.

Single-state Colorado searches include a court surcharge added to the standard fee.
