Why am I seeing a county-level verification fee on a basic search?
Once a potential record is identified in the National Criminal Database, Checkr automatically performs a County Level Verification. This means that Checkr conducts research at the county where the national criminal search shows a possible record.
The research includes:
- Additional identifiers to confirm it belongs to the individual in question
- Complete and up-to-date case information (e.g., disposition, status)
A county-level verification fee is the report upgrade charge.
