  • What Is an Ohio BCI Background Check?

    The Ohio Attorney General's Bureau of Criminal Investigation (BCI) is a crucial body that plays a significant role in maintaining the safety of Ohio's citizens. One of the many functions of BCI is to carry out background checks, on which the lives of Ohio's people rely on. Every year, BCI processes approximately one million background checks, which is no small feat. The process involves the gathering of fingerprints, which are then diligently scrutinized and compared against a vast database of criminal fingerprints. This comparison is necessary to determine whether there is an existing criminal record on file. This type of check is essential for numerous purposes, such as employment screenings, gun permit applications, or for those looking to volunteer with vulnerable populations such as children, seniors, and those with disabilities. By successfully completing these background checks, BCI helps to ensure that potentially harmful people are not passed through for certain opportunities, thereby enhancing the safety of society at large.

  • What Is a FBI Background Check?

    FBI background checks are a crucial step in determining an individual's suitability for a range of positions and industries, providing a comprehensive look at their criminal history and interactions with law enforcement. With access to the FBI's National Crime Information Center (NCIC) database, those conducting background checks can gain valuable insights into an individual's character, trustworthiness, and reliability. Whether it be for government agencies, private employers, volunteer organizations, or any industry that requires certain levels of clearance, FBI background checks serve as a vital tool in ensuring the safety and security of our communities. By thoroughly examining an individual's past, these background checks equip decision-makers with pertinent information, allowing them to make informed and thoughtful choices. With their ability to shed light on an individual's criminal history and interactions with law enforcement, FBI background checks are a crucial step in making our society a safer place.
