Additional Advantages Of A KidsSafe Background Check

Return To Main Page

1. Provider is an accredited member of the National Association of Professional Background Screeners (NAPBS)

This requires passing on an on-site audit of policies and procedures related to six areas: compliance, general business practices, product standards, client education, consumer protection and service standards. Less than five percent of screening providers hold this accreditation.

2. Real-time criminal record check (versus just a database check)

A criminal database check is a research tool properly used only to identify jurisdictions of interest and is not considered a true background check. Instead, we do state/multi-state criminal checks with county-level confirmations to widen the geographical area being searched for criminal records. Because of the incomplete, inaccurate and out-of-date nature of a criminal database check, any “hits” are verified with the proper jurisdiction before they are reported.

3.  Comprehensive criminal record check

Each criminal record repository contains different record types and covers different geographic areas and different time periods. Therefore, our comprehensive check includes:

  • County Criminal Records Check
  • Federal Criminal Records Check
  • Federal Civil Records Check
  • Sex Offender Registry Check
  • State-Wide Criminal Database Checks
  • Nation-Wide Criminal Database Checks
  • Social Security Number Scan
  • Residence History

Before background checks are reports are created, collected information is double checked for an accuracy rate of 99.975%.

4. Realistic timelines for check completion

A quality background check requires checking records with record holders such as courts, employers, educational institutions, licensing agencies, etc. This in-depth discovery takes time and cannot be done instantaneously, like some background check companies suggest.

Despite the complexities of performing a quality background check, we have a 72-hour turn-around-time guarantee and, in many cases, reports are ready in 24 hours.
