FINRA Background Checks

Criminal history background checks for individuals and businesses

Fingerprints have been considered the gold standard for personal identification since the 19th century because they are:

  • Completely unique
  • Established at birth
  • Impossible to fake

They are so trusted, law enforcement officers submit fingerprints as evidence in criminal proceedings.

To consolidate their efforts, the FINRA maintains the Automated Fingerprint Identification System (AFIS), the only consolidated database of fingerprints available for US citizens.

FINRA Background Checks – the most accurate option for criminal background checks.

Who is More Reliable?

The Applicant? Someone with information they would rather not disclose doesn’t need to lie to avoid detection. They can simply omit inconvenient facts like where they lived, aliases, or past convictions.

The Internet? Internet-based search options rely on algorithms, which can only find whatever disjointed, unedited, often outdated information is posted on the internet from various databases

The FINRA? FINRA Background Checks pull their information directly from the same source as law enforcement. AFIS, a consolidated database comprised of submissions from law enforcement jurisdictions throughout the country.
