What is a criminal background check?

A criminal background check is a complete history of your reports, such as arrests, convictions, and court records.

Criminal background checks are most often utilized as due diligence in the employer’s process. This ensures a safe workplace for all parties and protects the employer from negligent hiring claims. A majority of claims and requests for a criminal background check are part of the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s employee application process.

The background check process includes gathering a complete history through an application. Not only does the application have your name and address, but it includes the last four digits of your social security and a set of fingerprints. Ink fingerprinting is commonly required, and we offer it here, at Atlanta Fingerprinting.

In order to begin, we will need your ID, our order form filled out, and the cards needed for your employer. If you do not have finger print cards, we can provide them upon request. For all appointments, we are located in the heart of Atlanta, between Buckhead and Midtown, and our staff is available to call every day in between the hours of 8 AM and 5 PM EST. You can reach us at (404) 405-1750 or online at david@atlantafingerprinting.com. We offer fingerprinting on weekdays and weekends by appointment, with the goal of processing your finger prints in 15 minutes.
