International Screening FAQ & Myths

MYTH # 5 • “I Never Get a ‘Hit’”! Records always come back clear.

• Historically, the hit rate for International Searches is extremely low versus domestic: 1 - 2% v. 10%. • In many instances, a person cannot leave their country for the U.S. if they have a criminal record, thus resulting in lower hit rates. • “Hits” vary dramatically by country: in some countries criminal records can be “Spent” (i.e., Australia). • “Hits” can be more prevalent in some countries (i.e., Philippines and Canada vs. India).

Screening in China and Japan • CHINA does not have a criminal search per se, because those are only conducted by the Government. What is available is an “irregularity search” through the Ministry of Public Security. They house everyone’s criminal and credit information. • JAPAN is similar to China in terms of disallowing a criminal search. However, an “Illicit Activity Database Search” can be conducted that includes criminal records. • Court records are not available to the public • Many records obtained are stored in a proprietary database and it is a manual process and includes names, case reference, and offense • Limited in nature, only contains offenses in Tokyo and Osaka, the two main urban areas accounting for 20% of Japan’s population • Supplemented with a media press search. A low crime rate makes detection of offenses easier in that minor crimes are even reported and documented in the press. Other offenses such as DUI, theft, assault, and minor drug charges are listed

Screening in Mexico

National • A search conducted through the State Superior Tribunal of Justice Courts and Courts of First Instance. This search does not contain information from the Mexican Supreme Court of Justice. Local - Recommended • A local criminal search conducted through the state attorney general's office based on the candidate's residential address. Certificates of criminal records are available in most states. (Certificates results cannot be obtained in Baja California (North), Tabasco, Veracruz and Zacatecas as they contain biographical data specific to the candidate; the authorities will not provide that information other than the results of the search. • For these jurisdictions, the search is conducted through the Secretary of Public Security (SSP). Full conviction data is provided. Data is updated monthly.) • As in the United States, the scope of the Local search does not include Federal crimes (large narcotics cases, weapons violations, money laundering, kidnapping, and some financial crimes). • Requirements : Full name, mother’s full maiden name, date of birth, complete address for the search, Mexico ID number (CURP or RFC preferred; IFE or passport number can be accepted). For searches in Baja, a copy of the ID will be required.

Screening in Canada

• National Criminal Record – Obtained from the Canadian Police Information Center (CPIC) and generally covers all provinces and territories within Canada. CPIC does not cover all levels of convictions. – Special disclosure and authorization form required and must be notarized along with copies of two IDs – Report shows Incomplete or Match of Information Provided based on what the applicant self discloses on their declaration of criminal record. – Criminal records are not returned with this search. – Fingerprints may need to be submitted, which may delay the turnaround time. • Provincial Search—when searched with a CPIC, is the most accurate nationwide search. – Address based search covering a province. The Provincial sources do cover all levels of convictions, but some courts or dispositions may not be included. – Recommended with the CPIC for a true nationwide search – Usually comes back the same day • ID Check thru Credit Bureau • Credit Reports • Motor Vehicle Records • Civil – Provincial Court Searches • Employment and Education Verification

FBI – NCIC Fingerprint

• Though perceived as all encompassing, the FBI database is not considered reliable as a single source for background screening purposes - it is recommended that other sources be used to supplement the FBI search • Fingerprint matching – prints must be on file • Significant time lags from reporting states • Inconsistent reporting requirements from state to state • Limited reporting of case dispositions (45 – 50 %) • Serious issues in depository data linking • Return delays

National Databases

• “National” is a misnomer: – While current multi-jurisdictional databases contain millions of records (often 900-million or more), there exists no single, national database that contains all criminal records in the US • These databases include only those records from various government and law enforcement entities, counties, sex and violent offender registries and other sources that have been made available for purchase • Data cannot be 100 percent accurate, complete or up- to-date • “Clear” product is not Compliant with Licensing or Hiring

Databases - continued

• Data structures are not always reliable: – When combining several different databases into one, the methods used to structure the data will impact search results – For example, when a query is done using “ROBERT SMITH,” results returned may or may not include ROBERT A, BOB, BOBBY, and ROBERTO … whether separate queries must be made for each name varies from one database to another • Extraction Technology often applied • Ensure identifiers • Avoid duplicated records • Use as pointer only, “Hits” must be verified

77

• A county criminal search is a deep search, usually conducted in person, for a particular county • Latest and most complete information available, revealing the greatest level of detail • Most common for employers and regulators • Misdemeanor and felony • Co-located records – What most people don’t know … • Limited in scope • Fees should NOT vary County Criminal Records

County Lessons

• Searches must be conducted using alias and other name variations. • Sex offender registrations move to state of residence. • Old county records are rarely available. • Many states restrict reporting beyond seven (7) yrs. • Most background screening companies are not versed on NIGC requirements and will only provide seven (7) year searches. • Background screening companies most often require two (2) matching identifiers. If name match only, it will be reported as a “NO Record Found.” • Additional research is usually necessary on all criminal “hits.”

State Repositories

• Limited access • Not available in all states • Often require additional release • Often lack disposition • Six (6) have closed records • Not all counties contribute • Fees

Online County Records

• Online searches have limited search criteria and most often are “name match only” • When using an online source, always use an address locator and other sources to find aliases and other identifiers • While many online court networks actually search court dockets, most networks do not include all jurisdictions • All online searches should still be verified at the county level

© 2019 AmericanChecked Inc.

85

Online County Records

• Automated searches: Extraction • Search criteria NOT flexible • Name match only • Not available in all counties (approx. 1/3 of 3144) • Often no disposition • Require additional research • Subject to change

Civil Records

• Non-criminal offenses, brought by individuals, companies or governmental entities seeking monetary damage • Civil records are stored in courts at the county (lower and upper civil levels) and federal levels • The difference between lower and upper civil levels is typically dollar amount • Additional research is typically needed as identifiers are not often available on civil records • At the county level: • Civil records can provide insight into the subject’s participation as a defendant within civil litigation proceedings or disputes • At the federal level: • Civil litigation records can provide insight into the subject’s involvement in alleged violations of federal statutes or constitutional rights
