REAL Continuous Criminal Monitoring for CRAs Finally Here!


For years, background screening experts, industry pundits and HR media have been speculating that continuous monitoring for criminal records was going to become a big new trend in the background screening industry.

It’s Finally Here! 

It might have taken some time to get here but we are pleased to announce the release of the industry’s only real Continuous Criminal Monitoring data solution.

Did you know that approximately 12% of the U.S. workforce will be incarcerated over the next five years?

By monitoring for criminal activity such as arrests, incarcerations and bookings post-hire, our solution helps CRAs like you and your clients reduce workforce risk and provide a safer work environment for both your employer customers and their employees.

Safety, particularly in regulated industries and those who deal with vulnerable populations, is more important than ever to employers and SJV’s Continuous Criminal Monitoring solution helps CRAs create and maintain safer workplaces while mitigating risk.

What’s in It for Background Screening Companies?

If you’re a CRA and have clients in regulated industries or those who serve vulnerable populations, real-time continuous monitoring is critically important to them. It differentiates your business and exclusivity makes you mission-critical to reducing your customer’s risk. The best part-- the SJV Population Management Platform makes real-time continuous monitoring easy to deploy and simple to maintain. Set it, forget it. We’ll tell you when there’s something you need to know – in real time. It’s one of the best ways to grow your business in 2020.

It also provides you with a new data solution that will help expand your portfolio of products, optimize revenue and profitability and deepen your relationship with your clients. As the traditional background screening market has hit 96% penetration, Continuous Criminal Monitoring allows you to create true differentiation and fight back against commoditization.   

Continuous Monitoring vs. Periodic Rechecks

SJV’s Continuous Criminal Monitoring solution, as opposed to interval-based checks, is a recent innovation in the background screening industry and the demand for this near real-time data has grown quickly over the past several years as your employer clients are being held accountable for what they should have known after an employee is hired (see chart below). For example, a home health company can be notified if one of its in-home caregivers is incarcerated and or booked for activity related to theft or robbery.
