Our services for the education industry include:

Patriot Act Super Search
A powerful compliance tool with OFAC and much more; over 24 domestic and international watch lists, sanctions lists, most-wanted lists.

Federal Criminal Research
Violations of Federal Law will not be found in county records. The location of the information depends upon jurisdiction and where the charge was filed. The federal court system is organized by districts, and is searched similarly to county records. Unlike county courts, federal records can be searched statewide or nationwide.

Multi-State Criminal and Sex Offender Database Check
First Line Data now offers a Multi-State Criminal Search, which provides the speed of a database criminal search with the scope that goes beyond a single state. This is not a “national” search. Not all states provide access to all levels of the criminal records held in the state’s repository. Jurisdictions at all levels (county, state, federal) are sometimes months or years behind in posting criminal records or changes. It is wise to utilize this type of research as either preliminary or backup research to actual county searches.

Statewide Criminal Database Checks
Some states maintain repositories of criminal information submitted by the county courts and local law enforcement authorities in that state.

Professional License and Certification Verification
First Line Data’s research specialists verify license credentials at the primary source, validating status, standing, and dates if available.

Employment Verification
Researchers contact current and previous employers to verify information provided by the applicant. Information beyond dates and title are queried, including termination type, reason for termination, wage at termination, and eligibility for rehire.

Education Verification
First Line Data calls to confirm both degrees/certificates and dates of attendance supplied by the applicant. Some institutions may either require a written release, or utilize pay-for-use services.

Social Security Number Verification
Applicant’s supplied SSN is validated, directly through the Social Security Administration (SSA), bypassing all third parties. Results are available within minutes.

Previous Address Locator
This verification utilizes major credit source ‘header’ information to identify the individual, previous addresses, maiden names, and aliases, providing a valuable tool in determining criminal record search parameters.
