April 21, 2003 Return to News & Events announces new instant services.

America’s first online, real-time, instant criminal background check service (with no membership requirements) is now available through Information Enterprises, Inc.’s new website: This new website was created in response to the growing demand for fast and accurate criminal background searches. Businesses and individuals have doubled the amount of criminal background checks conducted in the U.S. over the past four years. Advances in database technology, lowering costs, and better criminal storage at the state level, and criminal checks being included in the tenant screening industry have contributed to this phenomena. This new site was designed to give all United States citizens fingertip access to criminal background histories anywhere in the country.

To perform a search on this site, all you need is the name and the date of birth of the person you are investigating, and a valid credit card. After you specify which of the thirty-three “instant states” you wish to perform a search in, an instant search immediately sends your search parameters to one of our interconnected repositories before displaying the results to you. You can perform statewide searches in other non-instant search states as well. These searches take only a few days to complete.
You can choose to search within up to thirty-three instant states on

The website offers county-level criminal background searches in all fifty US states. This is accomplished with the help of independent court researchers who process paper and electronic records in every county searched. Criminal histories are checked at courthouses, district attorney’s offices, sheriffs’ offices or other places where public records are stored.

The “Instant National Search” covers 33 U.S. states at once. This is the most comprehensive “no wait” criminal background search available today.

The most thorough search the new website offers is the “National Search Plus!” which covers most U.S. states. This search offers the largest coverage of any single search available. It covers all the 33 U.S. states found in our Instant National Search, with a separate 100,000,000 criminal records search with results returned in less than a week.
