Question
Why does CrimShield do a statewide search in addition to county searches?

Answer

While it is almost always best to investigate a person at the county level, there are situations when county investigations alone just don’t provide a complete picture, and therefore, are not accurate or complete. There are cases where states have blocked access to county court records and instead require investigation companies to access the needed information through their state criminal history repository. As an example, New York has numerous counties where criminal records may only be accessed through a statewide Investigative Search. There is additional value to doing a statewide investigation as such an investigation includes the neighboring counties to the county where an applicant resided in that State.
