Differences between Federal and National Criminal ReportsWhat is the difference between a Federal Criminal Report and a Nationwide Criminal Report? While these two reports sound like they would contain the same or similar information, the information contained in them is very different.
National Criminal Reports include misdemeanors or felonies committed all over the country. The databases searched for our National Criminal Reports include county courts, police records, state criminal records, and more.
Federal Criminal Reports include crimes that were prosecuted in federal court, such as fraud, drug trafficking, money laundering and tax evasion.
Knowing which report is best for you is an important part of the background screening process.
