What is a Criminal Background Check?
A Criminal Background Check is a procedure used to establish criminal history that a person might have been associated with. Typically, you can request a Criminal Background Check at the State Department of Justice.
Oftentimes, people confuse a Criminal Background Check with a background check. The latter is a comprehensive record of bankruptcy, marriages, divorces and the like. A background check can also contain mentions of a person’s criminal history as well.
A Criminal Background Check, however, is a criminal-specific report. It focuses on information such as person’s distinctive characteristics (for example, tattoos), convictions, prison sentences, arrests, known connections with other convicts, etc.
When is a Criminal Background Check required?
US citizens may be required to provide or be subject to Criminal Background Checks in a variety of situations. Some of the most common instances include:
● employment pre-screening;
● international travel;
● volunteer enrollment;
● change of name, etc.
