Access Public Records Easier

We work with background screening companies day in and day out, and understand that one size doesn't fit all. There are different tools that different people need. We've developed the above 3 affordable Background Screening packages based on our decades of experience to help you best choose the tools that would be most helpful to you.


The Public Record Research System (PRRS)

PRRS is the ultimate public record resource! In seconds, subscribers learn how to access public records directly from 28,000+ government agencies and institutions at the county, state, and federal levels. Subscribers gain the know-how for all access methods (including online searches), indexing and search requirements, restrictions, and fees. The Courts Section informs you, for most courts, when online searching is equivalent to onsite research.

PRRS consists of 7 individual BRB databases and each is offered on an ALA Carte basis as well:

  • State, County, and Local Courts
  • Federal Courts and Record Centers
  • State Agencies
  • County Recorders & Assessors Offices
  • Occupational Licensing Boards
  • College and Universities
  • LOCUS: Zip Code - County - Place Name

Criminal Record Sources (CRS)

Criminal Record Sources (CRS) is powered by BRB and is the authoritative reference for criminal records in the U.S. CRS provides the pros and cons of searching different record repositories, and is your information source for: (Where) The locations of criminal records - from both government agencies and vendors; (How) The ways criminal records can be directly accessed; and (Accuracy) The manner in which the accuracy and value of a criminal record varies by location. 

CRS features an Equivalency Matrix, which rates the accuracy and thoroughness of state judicial and repository online systems on a 1 to 5 basis to indicate if results are equivalent to an onsite search. CRS also contains links to over 100 unique federal search sites, including sanctions and watch lists. 

You can upgrade and order both PRRS and CRS for a small additional fee.
