Q: Which States have quality criminal databases?

Answer: Washington, Oregon, Idaho and Alaska have superior databases. They are thorough, detailed and updated often. Sadly, the INSTANT databases, often called Nationwide Criminal Data, only cover about 40% of the actual criminal
record information within the United States. These INSTANT databases are usually updated every one to three months. Never have I seen an ACTIVE CASE or ACTIVE WARRANTS from an INSTANT NATIONAL CRIMINAL DATABASE.

Recently Orca searched a LIVE DATABASE, updated daily. The applicant was applying for a job in a business serving families with small children. We found the following: RAPE OF A CHILD, ACTIVE CASE!

It pays to have a screening company that accesses Criminal databases that will provide ACTIVE CASES.
