Federal Criminal Record Search Background Check
This is a search of the federal district courts for any criminal charges that fall under federal jurisdiction. Crimes reported in a federal criminal database search include only those offenses that are federally prosecuted as opposed to local and state law. This means violations of federal law as enforced by the FBI, DEA, ATF, and other government agencies.
In total, there are 94 federal districts. Federal violations will not appear in either a county or statewide criminal check. Offenses listed in a federal criminal database can include:
- Drug trafficking
- Interstate transportation of stolen goods
- Bank robbery
