Employment Screening

SERVICES & PRICING

Employment Screening Services

Employers who conduct background screening greatly reduce the risk of employee theft, fraud and embezzlement. Background screening may reveal past criminal behavior and save your company thousands of dollars by helping you prevent a bad hire. Additionally, it is important that you protect your employees and clients from sex and violent offenders. Background screening sends a message to your employees, vendors, and clients that you are serious about safety. NCS has an extensive list of screening options and reports for your pre-employment screening. Please see the sample of a few of our services below. If you would like to see all of our services or would like to set up an account, please click here. There are multiple custom and state packages available.

County Criminal Search $15.95

The County Criminal History search is a manual, physical examination of a person’s criminal history report from the county seat in any U.S. county. Our team of experienced researchers will provide a comprehensive criminal search containing information on felony and/or available misdemeanor offenses located at the county seat for the previous 7 years at the county level. Depending on the state, some county courts have both an upper (felony) and lower (misdemeanor) court. In this case, the upper court is the court that is searched. If a lower court is needed, please contact NCS.

Each name and jurisdiction is a separate criminal record search.

Turn around time is usually 5-7 business days or less, but may be longer depending on what time of the day you submit your search request.

Additional fees may apply as some counties charge additional search fees.
