Criminal Records Search

Redstar Backgrounds is your one-stop shop for employer background checks. From criminal checks to motor vehicle record checks, Texas companies can trust us to comb through their employment candidates’ history.



National Criminal with Alias

This multi-faceted criminal records search combines national search data with known aliases provided from a Social Security Number (SSN) Trace.


It runs through a database of over 1 billion records, including state depositories and the following:

  • National Sex Offender Data Registry
  • OIG/HHS Exclusions List
  • OFAC SDN Office of Assets Control Specially Designated Nationals List
  • Global Terrorist Watch List
  • FBI Most Wanted List


Federal Criminal Search

Federal criminal searches are secured through an online retrieval system. These are crimes committed against the United States, including:

  • Federal drug charges
  • Bank robbery
  • Embezzlement
  • Bribery
  • Conspiracy to defraud the government

Many identifiers are privatized through the federal system, so researchers may use the Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP), attorneys listed on case information, address history, and county and federal court records to confirm identity.



Statewide Criminal Search

These searches use state repositories to search for felony and misdemeanor convictions. Information delivered at the state level is not always complete and may vary based on the timeframe investigated.


Many county courts limit the information released at the state level, as there is no standard required by Federal law. When the state information is not compliant by FCRA standards, we seek information at the source of county conviction.



County Criminal Search

We secure the most accurate county criminal data. The standard check goes back seven years and searches all misdemeanor and felony records in the county. Data is secured through electronic means and a structure of professional court runners.



Sex Offender Search

We utilize the multistate Sex Offender Registry and pull information from 49 states, as well as Washington D.C., Guam, and Puerto Rico.



Motor Vehicle Record

This report is a check with the Department of Motor Vehicles in the state where the candidate holds their license. It generally provides a history check of three to five years and includes:

  • Vehicle-related crimes
  • Accident history
  • Criminal charges where available

Note: Third-party fees may apply and are passed on to the client.
