FAQs

Why should we use an outside source to do our background checks when we can get the same information ourselves over the Internet?
PCI does not use computer databases to acquire criminal information as these databases are only as efficient as the person or persons entering the information. A county may be back logged several months waiting to enter new information into these computer databases. The information is at the county courthouse but not entered into the databases used by most “background companies.” PCI relies on real people doing real hand record checks at the county courthouses, in addition to utilizing other exclusive investigative resources. This ensures the highest level of accuracy. The turnaround time on these searches is typically 24 to 72 hours. Moreover, PCI maintains regular and frequent communication with law enforcement executives on both the State and Federal levels.
