County Criminal Records Search

Search County Criminal Courthouse Records

The HireRight County Criminal Records Searches help find criminal court records such as felonies and misdemeanors.

Because the majority of crimes in the U.S. are tried in county courts, these searches should be a baseline for all employee background checks.

The searches are performed at more than 3,100 county criminal courts across the United States, and are conducted by HireRight researchers via online access or in-person via an extensive network of court research professionals.

HireRight County Criminal Records Search Benefits

Using HireRight County Criminal Search can help reduce background screen turnaround time and provide more comprehensive results than searches conducted independently.

Most felony and misdemeanor criminal court cases are tried in county (or borough or parish) trial courts, so searching local courts can be essential in determining criminal background. Other benefits include:

  • Facilitate informed hiring decisions – Obtain direct-from-the-source information and be confident that every record found is evaluated to determine if it reasonably belongs to an applicant, in compliance with the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA.)
  • Receive more comprehensive information – Leverage HireRight’s online researchers and extensive network of in-person court research professionals to get more timely, more complete information.
  • Control search depth – Get the actionable information your organization requires by pre-selecting the number of years to search.
