The Difference Between a Criminal & Complete Background Check

by | May 31, 2017 | Uncategorized | 0 comments

Are you applying for a new job or planning on renting a home? In either case, you might have to complete a background check. You may think this is something that’s just about a person’s criminal history. However, this is not the case. There are actually two separate types: a criminal background check and a complete background check. Here at Whitesell Investigative Services, we conduct both types of checks. Here are the major differences between the two.

  • Criminal background checks – It’s all in the name. The only purpose of criminal background checks is to find out whether the individual has a criminal record. A criminal background check can also be included in a complete background check.
  • Complete background checks – This  tackles a broader range of information and includes any public records about the individual. This can include (but is not limited to) education records, employment history, and driving records. It is much more extensive than a criminal check because it combs through a person’s entire history.
