Full Suite of Criminal Record Checks

We offer the services you need for a robust risk mitigation strategy. When you’re doing a criminal background check, think of InfoMart

County Searches

A county-level criminal history check is the building block of a comprehensive background check. Including both felony and misdemeanor records, we inspect records onsite at courthouses and online and deliver complete results to your team.


Statewide Searches

Derived from a central repository for criminal records, a Statewide criminal history check is an affordable way to expand your background check’s scope by scanning all counties. Our list of reliable statewide searches gives your company peace of mind. 


Federal Searches

A complement to county and statewide searches, our federal criminal search reviews cases prosecuted by the U.S. government. These crimes can be important details to consider when determining a candidate’s employment eligibility. 

Continuous Criminal Monitoring

Backed by nationwide arrest data, continuous criminal monitoring screens an employer’s entire work pool 24/7 to monitor for new criminal activity. When a new arrest is found, we provide that information to you to make actionable decisions. Learn more about CCM here.

National Criminal Search

Tapping the resources of a comprehensive, private criminal history database, the NCS provides employers with quick results at an affordable price. All hits are verified directly at the source free of charge, making it the most compliant national criminal
database available. 

National Sex
Offender Search

Included with the National Criminal Search and also offered as a stand-alone search, the National Sex Offender search is an effective screening tool that identifies additional records that may not have been found in a standard criminal history search. All hits are verified.

Uncover 23% More Criminal Data When You Choose InfoMart

Expand your candidate’s criminal history search with InfoMart’s SSN Trace Plus

Your candidates travel outside of their hometowns, so their background check should, too.

SSN Trace Plus goes a step further than traditional social security number searches, which cull previous address histories to determine the states and counties in which to conduct criminal history searches for background screening.

Here’s why SSN Trace Plus is better:

  • SSN Trace Plus taps into real-time, nationwide incarceration data
  • This enhanced service uses a social security number and arrest info to expand jurisdiction histories beyond just prior address locations
  • Find convictions in counties an applicant has never lived

When you choose InfoMart, you choose a richer, more comprehensive look at your candidate’s history.
