FBI Fingerprinting may not keep you safe- 10 Jan
Although many may think of the FBI’s fingerprinting check system as being a “golden standard” for background checking, that really may not be the case. A NELP (National Employment Law Project) found that 50% of the records in FBI databases are missing disposition information.
Not every criminal record is associated with a fingerprint. And the NAPBS also points out that “not all state criminal records or fingerprints meet the FBI’s standards for inclusion… and not all state records are submitted to the FBI.”
Overall, a professional background check is much more comprehensive, accurate and thorough. When considering what you want to use for employment, renter or volunteer screening you may want to consider some of the items on this checklist below.
