Though it depends on a country’s criminal justice system, most countries provide for three tiers within the justice system. The tiers are usually comprised of a local (city) or district level, provincial level and federal level. When available the local or district level usually the yields the most significant data for the criminal court research. Court files are typically archived manually with very little automation. Some countries allow access to police records that are maintained by local law enforcement agencies and / or Central Criminal Justice Agencies as it conforms to local data privacy regulations and legal provisions. These agencies may require information to be obtained in a request from the applicant themselves. Requirements on how the information is retrieved and turnaround time will vary by country. There are several countries that due to Data Privacy Laws, lack of centralized criminal information and legal access do not allow criminal searches to be conducted. In these cases Veriproved Services recommends conducting a Global Watch International search. Global Watch consists of several modules geared towards examining information sources around the globe. These modules can tell us if a person is a known or suspected terrorist, denied persons, Specially Designated National (SDN), money launderer, drug king pin, Politically Exposed Person (PEP); or the subject of a regulatory, administrative, civil or criminal action. Global Watch searches include: global regulatory authorities checks, global compliance checks, financial crime investigative database search, US, European and Asian politically exposed persons database search, money laundering, corporate scandals and terrorist financing database search, stolen passport database search and foreign press search (translated into English).
