- Social Security Number Trace: More reliable than searching only by the name and location provided, the trace returns additional addresses and alternate names to search on a candidate.
- CourtDirect™: It’s critical to go directly to where criminal records are housed: the courts. Our technology provides direct digital access to 2,400 U.S. jurisdictions. A cornerstone of our business is to own more of our end-to-end data pipeline than anyone else in the industry, which allows us to provide faster turnaround times and reduces the opportunity for error.
- Enhanced Nationwide: A search of this national criminal record database generates leads on where to run additional searches. It is an important step, but all information must be validated at the court level.
- Locator Select: Whether working or vacationing, candidates have all spent time in counties outside their official residence. This tool allows us to expand the footprint of the search beyond address history and uncover records that might otherwise go unsearched.
- Sex Offender Search: Other databases can contain outdated or incomplete information—Sterling searches the U.S. Department of Justice’s National Sex Offender Public Website records to provide more accurate, real-time data directly from the state sex offender registries.
- QA & Record Verification: Sterling builds quality controls into our reporting process and applies Federal and State laws in reporting criminal records.
