It has never been more important for background screening companies to have the information they need to operate their business and to communicate in real-time.  SJV is here to help during these uncertain times.

Alternate Search Methods

Based on the research and testing we’ve conducted over the past few weeks, these alternate methods represent the best available option for completing criminal research in each of their respective jurisdictions, while courts remain closed (more than 138 jurisdictions identified).  When the courts reopen, we will again utilize them directly as our primary source of research.
