Personal information verification is a necessity.  In this current employment climate, it would be unwise, if not irresponsible, for an employer or landlord to forego access to invaluable investigative information about job applicants or potential tenants.  A professional background check from Scott-Roberts and Associates will verify that the information an applicant has provided is true and also uncover any negative information that has not been disclosed.

Our goal is to establish long-lasting relationships with customers by providing them with accurate information and dependable service they can count on.

Criminal History

A criminal check looks to see if the person you are looking to hire has any connections with arrests, federal employment, naturalization, or military service.  This process typically matches the person’s name with their fingerprints.  If the fingerprints match, it will relate the arrests to their Identification Record, which shows the name of the agency that submitted the fingerprints, the date of the arrest, arrest charge, and disposition of the arrest.

County Criminal History

A seven year county criminal history search in the requested jurisdiction. All dispositions (conviction and non-conviction) can be provided. In some instances, misdemeanor/traffic convictions may be recorded in a different court or location and result in an additional search fee. Multiple names used by an applicant are considered a separate search of criminal court record indexes. For instance, a maiden name, AKAs and former married names, are all considered a separate search of criminal court record indexes. All criminal record searches will be conducted to reflect a search of felony and/or misdemeanor indexes (involving statutory offenses), for the last seven-year period. Court record access fees are additional.
