Checkr offers continuous searches, which monitor real-time data sources for changes to a person’s record. If a record changes, Checkr does searches in the appropriate jurisdictions and generates a new report.
Results from continuous searches supplement your overall trust and safety program by finding recent reportable information.
A person must provide proper consent for enrollment in continuous searches. Specifically, people must authorize you to run background checks throughout their time with your organization. It is your responsibility to both obtain consent and unenroll people when they leave your organization. Consult your legal counsel to ensure that you have proper consent procedures in place for continuous searches.
You can use continuous searches with both the Checkr Dashboard and Checkr API
You can enroll only people in the United States in continuous searches.
Continuous searches use the data sources below:
- Checkr real-time data: Checkr completes over 22 million county searches every year. Checkr monitors those searches for results that match everybody you enrolled in continuous searches. Because of Checkr’s commitment to fair chance hiring, reports from continuous searches include only records from the past year.
- Arrest record feeds: Checkr uses information from a real-time feed as a pointer to identify counties to search. Checkr reports only records with recent convictions and pending cases.
Online criminal databases: Checkr uses information from the data sources below:
- Electronic county databases
- Global watchlist databases
- National criminal databases
- Sex offender registries
Results from continuous searches appear in background check reports.
