Checkr receives criminal record information from multiple sources, such as:
- National criminal record databases
- State sex offender registries
- Global watchlists and sanction lists
- Federal offense databases
- County courthouse records
Different screening packages will include different sources. For more information on these sources, see "What is the difference between federal, national, and county checks?"
The information in a criminal record can vary from source to source, based on the type of offense, and the level of detail available on the court record.
The following information is typically included:
- Case number
- File date
- Court jurisdiction
- Name on record
- Charge type
- Arrest date
- Offense date
- Charge date
- Disposition date
- Sentencing information
Each county courthouse may define and classify charge types and dispositions differently, so if you come across a charge or disposition that you don't understand, the best practice is to research the name of the charge or disposition along with the county where it was found.
If your research isn't turning up any answers, or you're struggling with a tricky charge type or disposition, you can always contact us.
