Description of Services
Social Security Number Trace Report
Verification of applicant’s social security number via credit databases. The Trace Report provides alias names used by the applicant and addresses where the applicant has lived. This report is an important tool in determining the jurisdictions in which to search criminal records. Utilizing the Trace Report in conjunction with criminal record checks dramatically increases your criminal record “hit rate”.
Applicant’s driving record is accessed via the Bureau of Motor Vehicles in the appropriate state. This report verifies if the applicant has a valid drivers license and will show traffic violations, suspensions of driving privileges, driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs and reckless operation charges. This report is a necessity if the applicant will be driving a vehicle as part of his/her job duties.
County Criminal or Civil Record Search
Searches are conducted in-person by our extensive network of courthouse record experts at the Clerk of Courts office. Checks include both felony and misdemeanor records when housed in the same court. All pertinent case information is supplied with each record at no extra cost. No court fees or disposition fees are ever passed on to our clients. This search is recommended for all employees regardless of position.
Multi-State Criminal Search
TriCor offers a Multi-State Criminal Search, which is a comprehensive databased search of multiple criminal record sources. The Multi-State Search contains criminal record information from all 50 states and has over 155 million records. The Multi-State Search is an effective ‘locator’ tool designed to identify jurisdictions in which an applicant potentially has a criminal record. This search, combined with a county criminal record search, identifies criminal history records that otherwise may go undiscovered.
TriCor has skilled investigators who directly contact the former places of employment of your applicant and obtain the information that you need when making your hiring decision. The “Level One” verification includes dates of employment, position held and eligibility for re-hire. Our “Level Two” verification includes all aspects of the “Level One” verification plus and in-depth interview with the former supervisor including questions regarding job performance, attendance, ability to get along with others, etc…
Education/Professional License Verification
Our investigators directly contact the educational institution or licensing body that your applicant claims to have attended. Information obtained includes dates of attendance and type of degree/license obtained, whether the license is in good standing and the date that the license will expire. Educational credentials are the most commonly falsified part of an employment application.
Employment Credit Report
This information is obtained directly from one of the major credit bureaus. The employment credit report shows past payment patterns on credit accounts, civil actions and bankruptcy filings. This report is especially relevant if the applicant will be responsible for cash or large amounts of valuable company assets.
Federal Criminal, Civil or Bankruptcy Record Search
Searches are conducted at the Federal District Court level by a member of our searcher network. These records differ from County and State searches and show cases filed with the US Government only. This search is recommended for anyone applying for a “white-collar” type of position.
Statewide Criminal Record Search
These searches are conducted with the appropriate state repository of criminal information. Availability varies by state and some states require specialized request forms (notarized release forms, fingerprints, etc…) for the search to be conducted. Turnaround time varies by state and is dependent upon the state agency that houses the records.
