Non-Profit & Volunteer Background Checks

Peopletrail reviews credit histories with a credit bureau report from our online access to the three major credit bureau reporting systems: an important step in volunteer background checks.

When considering a volunteer for a sensitive position, it is important for organizations to have a clear and concise profile. Credit reports can reveal factors relating to financial irresponsibility. In addition, credit reports uncover any possible identity or resume fraud by revealing name variations, historical addresses, and past employment information.

A credit report for employment purposes does not include FICO scores and does not affect the FICO score or display to creditors.

Our screening specialists manually search through jurisdictional court records in any of the 3,347 counties in the United States. We search through these records to provide the quickest and most up-to-date information. The cases held at the county level include information about felonies, misdemeanors, and criminal traffic offenses.

Drug testing volunteers and applicants helps keep drug abusers out of the organization while maintaining the safety of other volunteers. Our variety of services comply with all federal mandates and regulations. Our customized drug testing programs assist with volunteer background checks.

We manually check applicant-reported employment references.  Businesses often check the employment history of applicants to avoid resume fraud or simply to get input from a previous employer.

Records at the federal level can potentially uncover criminal information not prosecuted or recorded at the county or state level. This information can include securities and tax law violations, immigration, weapons, interstate drug crimes, and civil rights violations.

Peopletrail provides convenient fingerprinting services through our nationwide collection network. Fingerprinting can uncover criminal history left undiscovered by traditional screening methods. It also offers extra protection to help businesses meet industry guidelines, prevent fraud, and stay compliant.

Easily integrate Peopletrail’s single, hassle-free fingerprinting system into any other background and screening service.

Peopletrail provides a wide selection of screening services in over 200 countries across the globe. We work to ensure our global providers follow government policy and cultural protocols.

This search will provide you with peace of mind and help ensure a safer working environment. Sex Offenders are required to register in the state in which they currently reside. However, not all states provide information to the public.

Peopletrail provides up-to-date consumer-identifying information instantly obtained from confidential credit report sources. This search verifies the applicant’s social security number and identity. The report also supplies name variations, date of birth, current and previous addresses and former employers.

A social security number search for employment creates a soft inquiry to the applicant’s credit file that does not affect the FICO score or display to creditors.

Our dedicated screening specialists work with you to determine the best place for your searches. When necessary, a repository search frequently provides a cost-effective way to cover the entire state.

In some states, counties submit criminal data to a state repository. The data that can be collected varies by state. Some states may collect all data from all counties; some states may only collect arrest or felony data; some counties may not provide any data.

Peopletrail provides Volunteer Check as a low-cost alternative for non-profit clients and volunteer organizations. This background check is ideal for individuals that will work with children or other vulnerable persons.

This screening solution can determine a pattern of criminal behavior and identify past sexual offenses. The Volunteer Check searches many databases including the department of corrections, state, county court records, and sex offender registry records.
