Tulsa, OK (PRWEB) December 17, 2004

USIS and First Advantage (NASDAQ: FADV) recently announced their strategic agreement to jointly provide the USMA National Theft Database™ to retailers across the country.

In this agreement, USIS will open its retail theft database product to First Advantage and its clients. The database, which was exclusively offered by USIS and previously unshared, contains client contributed incident records of confirmed employee theft and shoplifting. This collaboration will advance the growth of the database through contributions of information by both companies’ vast retail client bases. Participating clients will benefit from greater access to information key to their employment candidate selection and loss prevention efforts.

”We are pleased to partner with First Advantage in this groundbreaking agreement which provides an unrivaled loss prevention option to retail companies across the country,” said Jim Collins, president of USIS Commercial Services. “We believe that this arrangement will have a tremendous benefit to all retailers who participate and share information through the USMA National Theft Database – this partnership is the right thing to do for the retail industry.”

By contributing to and accessing the proprietary data held in the USMA National Theft Database, First Advantage is able to provide our clients with a new layer of screening for even more comprehensive programs.”

About the USMA National Theft Database

The USMA National Theft Database began by retailers who started sharing theft data to prevent the hiring of known thieves. Today, thousands of locations throughout the United States, including one-third of the nation’s largest retailers, contribute and share information through the USMA National Theft Database. The database houses information on nearly one million cases of theft and fraud, which include employee theft, shoplifting, refund/credit card fraud and the passing of bad checks. According to the National Retail Security Survey, as many as 86 percent of retail theft is not criminally prosecuted. Retailers gain value from the product because they are able to identify individuals who have admitted to stealing, but whose incidents may not show up in a typical criminal search.

The USMA National Theft Database operates on the following efficient and streamlined system:

•    Member companies submit theft information

•    Records contain admissions of theft

•    Employers screen applicants against the database; if a record indicates that an applicant has admitted to stealing from a member company, the case information is re-verified before being disseminated, making it fully compliant with the Fair Credit Reporting Act

•    Employers then have a legally sound basis on which to make hire/no hire decisions

Over the past few years, USMA National Theft Database screening has identified nearly 45,000 applicants with records of theft, saving retailers millions.

Tenant Background Check – Check Your Tenants History This could happen to you, if you don’t screen your new tenants first! Go to: to learn more.

California is the third largest state in the United States; with 58 counties and 55 superior courts within those counties, it’s no wonder that conducting a background check within this state is no easy task. Here is a little guide to help you understand how to search for records in the golden state. Are you going to be searching for criminal or civil records? Think about this question before you begin your search. Not every county in California allow access to both of these types of files, so know what types of records you need before you get started. Civil records usually encompass any type of litigation between two parties, including marriage and divorce records, tax liens and even child support settlements. Other types of civil records include death records or incorporation licenses. Companies usually research death records to investigate identity theft and any other crimes where an individual steals a deceased person’s SSN and personal information. Criminal records represent litigation between an individual and the state or federal government. For employers, this is the most important type of records to search. Every year, employee fraud, theft and workplace violence cost business billions of dollars. It’s better to avoid hiring employees who are at risk for being involved in that sort of crime. Landlords also need to access criminal records. They should screen their tenants to see if an individual has a record, has been arrested for assault, harassment, or other Announces Strategic Partnership with Grief Recovery Experts John James and Russell Friedman Announces Strategic Partnership with Grief Recovery Experts John James and Russell Friedman

Getting Into Oklahoma Criminal Background Check

Getting Into Oklahoma Criminal Background Check

Article by Ben Gee

Generally there isn’t too much fuss in checking your own or another person’s Oklahoma Background Check. What needs to be met though is the basic instruction of filling out the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation or OSBI-provided record check form in requesting for a criminal history record check as a personal copy for review purposes or for assessing employees. There is now a “fillable” form online before printing it and mailing it to OSBI thru Criminal History Record Information Request address. Otherwise you may get it in person at their headquarters in OK City.

Compared to other state, strict is not a description applied to its attainment. As privacy of persons’ interests are well protected, so is the access rights of the public established by the Oklahoma Open Records Act, which permits reviews and checks essential to general public safety.

Applying for a professional license (e.g. nurses or doctors) apart from assessing qualified volunteers dealing with kids and other named vulnerable groups, are two of mandatory purposes for running a criminal background investigation. This kind of request must always include personal identifiers namely full name and date of birth. If it’s possible adding more details such as social security number info can give you a thorough lookup results.

If you want fingerprinting undergone for a State fingerprint search it must still include a name-based lookup plus a set of fingerprint cards. This service can be arranged with your local sheriff or police station. Results of criminal background checks comprise reports of arrests, convictions records for grave misdemeanors and felonies inclusive only of the Oklahoma state data. Neither data from other states nor those national records held by the FBI are available to the public.

Background Check Report is now within your grasp through the web-based retrieval options where a much more extensive compilation of data is downloaded in minutes. It has to be an overall accessibility of recorded history info before one can tag it a background investigation. At this time the state is still bound to a rather conventional means of disseminating government archive data.

If in case you need other than the quickness of viewed results but also completeness and efficiency of a subject’s records of experiences and overall character or qualifications, a handy retrieval site can be utilized in private- in your office or home. By applying such service you can have what you need. Checks today are conducted in a breeze. It’s just at the tip of your fingers so to speak. Learn to acquaint yourself with a recognized service. As a matter of fact, a quick search can help you figure out how easy it is to access and know them- those you really want to know.

Criminal Background Check Ensures Workplace Safety

Criminal Background Check Ensures Workplace Safety

Article by Mishael Drane

Ensuring the safety of the employees within their working environment is simple actually. The answers in almost everywhere you go are all the same: harmony. It’s that word that makes work flow smoothly no matter where you are or what you do. But how do you find harmony within your work place? It depends upon everyone working there. By making sure you hire the right kind of people to do the necessary jobs for you, and then you’re guaranteed that they’ll do just that and nothing else. Work time should be spent for work alone and not on violence. Of course if a person is a violent individual in nature, eventually his true colors will come out. Thus a public disturbance might suddenly occur. Just how do you make sure you hired the right kind of work employee you wish them to be? The answer now comes to a need to require a comprehensive background check on each of the applicants on your list. The most common in the package that you should include in the process is by requesting results through a criminal background check.

During an interview, it is expected that those wanting to be in the position would want their employers to be impressed with them. Therefore, they make sure they’re putting their right foot forward to have that effect. Not one of them will talk about their negative side, not even their flaws. It will always be about their assets and what makes them perfect for the job position. Everything else that you should or must know are hidden somewhere in their past records. That’s what you need to get your hands on. Their history will speak to you about their past reactions, attitudes and capabilities. Assets or not, you’ll learn a lot simply by having a glimpse of their previous employment and background records.

Getting a criminal background check is easy. You can choose to utilize this process by accessing the needed criminal records through a professional criminal background check company. The company doesn’t always mean you have to go to the National Crime Laboratory, the Criminal Records Bureau, or to whatever government agency it is that carries the records you’re looking for. Nowadays, the internet technology already carries a number of background check service sites that offers everything that you need from a background check. These sites, hopefully, had devoted themselves at updating their database of records for your background check needs. That way you’re guaranteed that after being able to check around and dig up on your applicants’ history, you’ll be able to choose the best suitable employee that you’d want for your company.
