Criminal History

IR-6 conducts comprehensive criminal history investigations on the county, state and federal level. We treat every criminal background search as an individual investigation, ceasing only when the information is complete and accurate. Be certain that your provider is not utilizing large pre-purchased databases with insufficient and antiquated information. We gather our information from the most direct source available in the jurisdiction searched.

Our criminal history investigations include incarceration searches and sex offender registry searches ensuring the most comprehensive and wide-spread investigation into the potentially troubled past of an individual.

Why would a criminal history investigation be necessary?

Some common reasons to conduct a criminal history investigation include the following:

Compliance With Legislation - Recent state and federal legislation has increased demands on companies to conduct comprehensive criminal background investigations of any employees in a position where harm could be done to a customer or another individual
Pre-employment Screening* - Identifying a potential threat to your company's well being during the application process is the most cost effective way of reducing risk, especially considering that negligent hiring lawsuits are on the rise. False or inflated application or resume information may lead to the unqualified placement of an individual.
Active Employee Screening* - A comprehensive criminal background investigation conducted on current employees can immediately identify an employee who might be a threat to the company as well as incomplete screening and/or oversight during the hiring process.
