National Crime Index

Register Now

Health Street offers a comprehensive search of the National Crime Index. This database is an excellent first step in running a background check. Employers should normally get this screening as part of our Triple Database Package. However, in some cases, employers do not want to search the sex offender registry or do-not-fly list, and as such, they opt for this search in lieu of the package.

Registering for a background screening is simple and quick. Simply register online or call (888) 378-2499. Signatures are collected electronically for your convenience, and a final background report is provided securely online.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Is The National Crime Index?

The national crime index is a large database that most states and counties in the USA report to.

Does This Background Screening Cover Everything I Need?

This option is a great, initial way to begin doing a background check on someone. It’s best if it is included as part of a package of checks, like our Triple Database Package, which includes other checks that go hand-in-hand with this one.

The national crime check background check is a great place to get started. Since reporting varies by state and county, the most comprehensive overview of a person’s history will come from our packaged deals that include searches of other databases as well.

How Long Does a Criminal Background Check Take?

Results of database background checks are generally fast. We will review the database report and then report it to the employer. Reports are frequently returned the same day or the next business day.

Registering for Background Check Services

Registering for a background check is fast, and can be done online or via phone. If this is the first time that the company has ordered a background check, then we will send you an agreement for the background screening service. We will also send a waiver for the person being screened to give us approval to proceed. Both of these documents will be delivered and signed electronically, and the background screening will automatically begin once they have been signed. When the requested services have been completed, a background screening report will be stored securely in our online portal.

Why Choose Health Street

We Value Your Security

Health Street sends out a waiver to the person being screened before we proceed with the request. Only when we receive approval to proceed from the person being screened will we conduct the background screening. Once the background report has been finalized, we store it securely in our online portal.

If you still have any concerns, our friendly customer service team is happy to answer any additional questions you may have about our background checks via phone.
