The Complete Criminal Locator Only From SterlingBackcheck

The Complete Criminal Locator is exclusive to SterlingBackcheck and provides the most thorough criminal record check available in the market today, searching 23% more sources for information about an individual than competing services. Rather than limiting the search to an applicant’s recent residences, it casts wider net to include surrounding locations, national databases and victim notification data, finding on average 15.7% more criminal charges as a result.

The Complete Criminal Locator counter on the home page calculates the incremental number of risky people found using Complete Criminal Locator versus a standard social security trace. Here’s how it works:

STEP 1: Social security number traces look at where applicants have lived according to credit reports and other sources.

STEP 2: We start with those jurisdictions and search millions of records across hundreds of data sources, some of which may not be totally up-to-date.

STEP 3: Our proprietary technology then takes a further step to identify additional jurisdictions to search for convictions based on information found in victim notification databases and arrest records.

THE RESULT: A higher likelihood you’ll get criminal records that traditional checks miss.
