Chicago Background Check Experts

With over ten million people living in the metropolitan Chicago area, the potential for resume fraud is exponentially higher than many other cities.  The easiest way to ensure you are choosing the most qualified applicant is to conduct an Illinois background check.  At National Research, we have cultivated a strong relationship with the Illinois State Police, and have intricate knowledge of the practices of many of the local courts, including Cook County, DuPage County, Lake County, and many more, to ensure only data of the highest integrity shows up on our Chicago background check. We are not a data broker.  Any time you request a Chicago background check, you will be receiving a manually conducted or reviewed search.  For example, Cook County court is divided into five separate divisions (Civil, Law, Chancery, Domestic Relations, and Criminal). Our Chicago background check and employee screening experts review all the data from these divisions in order to ensure you get the  complete picture.

Please note, we also provide Chicago background checks to individuals, not just businesses. Although the Windy City is known as one of America’s most iconic urban centers, Chicago is, unfortunately, one of the most dangerous cities in the country, with a large population of residents with criminal records. Chicago also has a constant flow of new residents, visitors and semi-transient workers who can bring a troubled past to the present Chicago. No matter where someone is from, our Chicago background check investigations can find their records anywhere in the country or even abroad.

Any online vendor would not care to distinguish between the courthouses and may only search one of the available locations for records.  Furthermore, Cook County criminal records are only available by sending an investigator into the courthouse to browse the records terminal.  Many online vendors utilize large databases of information when conducting an Illinois background check and may neglect to provide accurate information.  When you purchase from an instant vendor, you are buying a disclaimer rather than a complete, accurate Chicago background check.

Each or our reports can be fully customized to ensure you only pay for the searches that you need.  We do not bundle unnecessary searches, and always have a trained investigator ready to discuss any potential questions you may have!

Our Chicago background check services are available to potential employers, attorneys, landlords, and small businesses.

Please note that all of our searches are state specific, which means that only Chicago records will show up in a Chicago background check involving the use of Illinois state sources.  The only national criminal database in the United States is maintained and operated by the F.B.I.  Only law enforcement have access to this database so this is not a resource that any private company can use in conducting a Chicago background check investigation.  As such, any firm that claims to offer a nationwide search is not being entirely truthful.  We are certainly able to conduct searches in all 50 states (as well as internationally), but if you have concern about creating a wider net to conduct searches, feel free to call our office  to discuss how we provide the most accurate Chicago background check in the industry.
