Identifying the subject of the record check
There are two ways to conduct a record check; by name or by fingerprints.
For a name-based record check, you must know the subject's first and last names and date of birth. If you also know the subject's social security account number (SSAN), middle name, alias names, height, weight, race, place of birth, residence and occupation, these additional items of information may be helpful in locating the record or determining that the subject has no record.
Fingerprint identification is the preferred method of searching the Central Repository. The criminal history records in the Central Repository are tied to the fingerprints taken at the time of the subject's arrest and submitted by the arresting agency. If you can obtain a set of fingerprints from the person whose record you are searching, then those fingerprints will be searched against the Central Repository fingerprint database. The accuracy of such a search is almost 100%.
