About SecureSearch™Get Started

    SecureSearch™ has been providing pre-employment and volunteer screening services since early 2006. As the top company for volunteer background checks, we are used by Volunteer and Staff Recruiters everywhere because we are easy to use, affordable and give you the data you need to make an informed decision.

    Whether you are hiring an employee, a contractor or bringing on a volunteer, it’s important to feel secure about the people you are working with for the first time.

    You need and deserve unparalleled data, coupled with outstanding customer service, quick turn-around time and an easy to use interface for background screening programs.

    And of course, we are not only offering protection for companies, non-profit and youth groups and other employers, but also for your work force, volunteers, your customers and most importantly, children and vulnerable adults who rely on you to provide a safe and secure environment for all. Diligence is the key to safety and we are here to help!

    SecureSearch™ is well known for being a national resource and industry leader for non-profit organizations working with children and vulnerable adults. For us, its much more than a job, it is a driving force within our culture to help protect those who cannot protect themselves. We also serve a wide number of companies, large and small, in all 50 states for pre-employment background checks. If you are new to employee or volunteer screening and want to experience the best in the industry, call us today.

    Important Background Screening Statistics:
    • One in 31 adults in America are in prison or jail, or on probation or parole. Twenty-five years ago, the rate was 1 in 77.
    • Overall, two-thirds of offenders are in the community, not behind bars. 1 in 45 adults is on probation or parole and 1 in 100 is in prison or jail. The proportion of offenders behind bars versus in the community has changed very little over the past 25 years, despite the addition of 1.1 million prison beds.
    • Correctional control rates are highly concentrated by race and geography: 1 in 11 black adults (9.2 percent) versus 1 in 27 Hispanic adults (3.7 percent) and 1 in 45 white adults (2.2 percent); 1 in 18 men (5.5 percent) versus 1 in 89 women (1.1 percent). The rates can be extremely high in certain neighborhoods. In one block-group of Detroit’s East Side, for example, 1 in 7 adult men (14.3 percent) is under correctional control.
    • Georgia, where 1 in 13 adults is behind bars or under community supervision, leads the top five states that also include Idaho, Texas, Massachusetts, Ohio and the District of Columbia.
