Statewide Criminal Search
This is a broader scope geographical area criminal background check extending the County check to a more comprehensive individual State level search (where available). Not all States currently have a Statewide Repository or information is severely limited or not up to date so caution must be exercised.

Approximately 39 States are now available with timely and up to date information. This can be a cost effective way to search criminal records in multiple Counties within a State. Please note, in some states not all courts report.
