Our national criminal search is a powerful instant multi-jurisdictional database search comprised of hundreds of millions of records.

Our national criminal database search combined with the county criminal search will provide comprehensive criminal background searches to achieve coverage and accuracy. The price ranges between $45 and $60 per National Criminal Database Search which includes the national sex offender screening, an SSN Trace and other government watch lists. We offer volume discount pricing and package discounts when you bundle multiple services together.
