Name Checks

Name Checks are a quick, cost effective alternative to fingerprint based screening, but it is up to you to determine the possible risk that you may not really be certain of an individual’s identity. Name checks have been common practice for years as a quick way of screening that a known individual does not have a criminal record.


How it works

An individual’s name and date of birth are compared against the RCMP’s database of convicted criminals to search for a match. In the event of a possible match you will be required to submit fingerprints to be certain that the individual you are screening is/or is not the one found in the criminal history database.


How it’s provided

These services are available at any of our extensive network of Affiliates. The information is collected remotely and transmitted by secure communications to our headquarter facilities in Hamilton where it will reside until it is needed. It is simple to do a Name Check, simply fax the information of the individual, along with a signed consent form and we will do the rest. A result will be emailed to you within 48 hours.
