National Criminal Records Search

The National Criminal Database search is an instant database search compiled of criminal information from more than 4,000 continuously updated sources and nearly 1 billion records.

We provide:

  • Standard searches from cities and states that add their criminal information to a database
  • Multijurisdictional criminal, 50-state sex offender registry
  • Terrorist watch list
  • SSN validation, SSN Trace with alias & address history
  • Wants & warrants
  • Financial sanctions (OFAC plus 200+ data sets)
  • Global sanctions (OIG/SAM plus 200+ data sets)
  • And much more

Some of the components of our National Criminal Database Search are:

  • Sex Offender Registries: All 50 states keep a sex offender registry. Since sex offenders frequently cross state lines, ordering this search (that is included in the Data Facts National Criminal Database Search) helps you identify convicted sex offenders. This search is especially essential if your organization serves vulnerable populations like children or the elderly.
  • Social Security Trace: Tracks down all addresses associated with your applicant’s social. This may identify areas that were not originally targeted to search.
  • Department of Corrections: Gain access to the Department of Corrections files through our National Criminal Database Search.
  • Terrorist Watch List Searches
  • Federal Exempt List

Federal Criminal Records Search

Federal criminal records are housed in the US Federal Government’s PACER (Public Access to Court Electronic Records) criminal record system, which is the online portal that Data Facts uses to obtain case information from the 94 Federal District Court jurisdictions.

Federal criminal offenses fall into the following categories:

  • Crimes against federal employees (postal carriers, TSA employees, etc.)
  • Crimes committed on federal land (e.g., national parks)
  • Bank robberies (all banks are protected by the FDIC)
  • Commissions of crimes across state lines (e.g., a kidnapping occurring in CA which crosses into NV, large-scale conspiracies)
  • Drug cases involving large distribution network(s)
  • Child Pornography (internet allows for transmission across state and country borders)
  • Embezzlement
  • Other crimes that fall outside state and local jurisdictions
