CI offers volunteer and nonprofit organizations a valuable BACKGROUND INVESTIGATIONS inquiry called PROTECTION
PLUS TM . PROTECTION PLUS TM has been developed to provide a timely and cost effective inquiry to identify adverse
information about a volunteer or employee of a nonprofit organization. It is a combination inquiry which includes the
results from both a SSN & ADDRESS INFORMATION inquiry and a MULTISTATE CRIMINAL inquiry. Only volunteers and
employees of non-profit organizations may be checked using CI’s PROTECTION PLUS ™.
CI’s SSN & ADDRESS INFORMATION inquiry is a powerful investigative tool that verifies the validity of a subject’s Social
Security Number, reveals various names (aliases) associated with the SSN and provides information on prior addresses
and movement patterns, including the approximate dates of residence at each identified address. CI’s SSN & ADDRESS
INFORMATION inquiry is appropriate for proper due diligence. It establishes an investigative starting point and allows
for a more complete background investigation by verifying subject provided information against a third party database.
CI’s MULTISTATE CRIMINAL inquiry is a powerful high-speed multi-jurisdictional search of state and county criminal
record databases that quickly returns offender information in a condensed, easy to comprehend, format. CI’s
MULTISTATE CRIMINAL inquiry efficiently searches over 160 million criminal records from multiple sources within
It is important to note that, although very powerful, the MULTISTATE CRIMINAL inquiry is not as up-to-date as a current
residential jurisdiction criminal inquiry. Also, it may not contain lower level convictions data that other criminal inquiries
would. Therefore, CI does not recommend that its clients rely solely on a MULTISTATE CRIMINAL inquiry to investigate a
subject’s criminal history. At a minimum, CI recommends that volunteer and nonprofit organizations also conduct a
criminal record inquiry in the current residential jurisdiction of an applicant. CI also believes it is prudent for clients to
conduct criminal record inquiries in those jurisdictions where a subject has resided for at least the past seven years, as
identified by the SSN & ADDRESS INFORMATION inquiry and as indicated by the subject on their consent form. CI works
with each client to design a specific package of inquiries that is both fiscally prudent for the client and enhances the
client’s responsibility to protect the safety of its employees, volunteers and customers.
The utilization of PROTECTION PLUS ™ by volunteer and nonprofit organizations provides an extremely powerful starting
point for their BACKGROUND INVESTIGATIONS. PROTECTION PLUS ™ allows CI volunteer and nonprofit clients a cost
effective way to enhance both their due diligence and risk mitigation.
Make CI’s PROTECTION PLUS ™ inquiry your first choice for a second impression.
