What is a statewide criminal history search?

The statewide criminal record search is the most commonly used criminal background check.  You can conduct a state wide criminal history check in every state except for Massachusetts and Delaware (only county level searches are available in these two states).  Most of our statewide criminal history reports include corrections data, court records, felony convictions, misdemeanor offenses and some traffic offenses.  For specific search information for any given state, please visit our state pages to look-up and find everything you need to know about exactly what records we search for within a given state search, and also what information to expect in your search results.

Each statewide criminal search includes a free national sex offender report and a free US most wanted criminal database check.  With the exception of a couple of states, all of our statewide criminal record searches are instant.  That means that seconds after you place your search, you will be able to lookup and view your criminal history report online, and we even securely store your search results for you to look up for 60-days, in case you need to print them or view them after your order is placed.
