we value your time and the collective experiences of both you and your candidates. As a trusted partner, we are committed to helping employers select high-quality applicants.

Since 2007, Cross Check Screening Solutions has been improving the quality and accuracy of background screening processes in businesses across the country. Founded by Derek Woods, after retiring with the rank of Lieutenant with over 20 years of service in law enforcement, Cross Check Screening Solutions benefits from Wood’s training and experience in the areas of criminal investigations, human relations, and background checking. Woods has also worked criminal court cases for defense attorneys, conducted private investigations for companies with in-house concerns and has testified in criminal cases at the Federal, Superior and District court levels.

“We provide a fair and transparent candidate experience; one that helps employers avoid unnecessary hiring delays by decreasing turnaround times, improving regulatory compliance and mitigating risks by reporting highly probable matches with complete dispositions along with real-time updates and source information.” – Derek Woods, Owner & Chief Investigator

Are We a Good Fit for You?

Choosing the right background check service can be confusing. Many employers don’t realize that instant criminal databases are regularly inaccurate and can miss about half of the available records. That's why you need a partner that knows what they are looking for and where to find it. 

With the Cross Check Guarantee, You Get: 

  • Unparalleled knowledge of all aspects of background screening solutions
  •  Criminal background investigation packages to meet every employer's risk-tolerance and budget concerns
  • FCRA and EEOC compliance 
  • Peace of mind 

Speed ∙ Accuracy ∙ Competency

"States report data to the FBI inconsistently, especially for outcomes of arrests and expunged records. People may be arrested and charged, which would show up in an FBI background check, but if those charges were dropped or the person was not convicted, the FBI report may not reflect that. How common are these inaccuracies? Court disposition data indicates the outcome of an arrest, and nationally, only 49% of arrests have a matching court disposition." – Urban.org

The Cross Check Difference:

  • Checks are performed and verified by trained law enforcement professionals  
  • We follow through with a 10-point checklist to ensure your candidate has been properly vetted and checked
  • Easy to interpret results with superior data quality and reliability
  • Most reports are completed within 48-hours

What Our Clients Are Saying

"Cross Check Screening Solutions helped me find the best qualified employees from welders to office personnel to assist me in my business."  

Dennis – President, AC Cage Man  


"Coming from a Child Protection Background myself, I was very cautious with whom I chose to run my candidates' background checks. I wanted someone who would provide a hands-on experience, especially with the knowledge that many variables are typically unfounded by most background check agencies. Derek's entire career has revolved around criminal justice, which to my knowledge, made him the right fit for our agency. I was able to easily communicate with him and gain another professional opinion on my gut instincts in all of my scenarios."  

Dilia Coppedge – Founder & President, The Nanny Loft


"It was a pleasure working with Derek and his team of Investigators, they helped me choose the right people to work in my auto body shop."  

Darryn Woods, Owner, Woods Collision Center

Frequently Asked Questions

What Are the Legal Responsibilities?

Legal Information for Pre-employment Background Checks: To maintain FCRA (Fair Credit Reporting Act) and State compliance, we verify all criminal charges with the official court of record; this ensures every record received from us is fully vetted. FCRA is applicable regardless of whether or not a credit report is included in the background check. In addition, state laws impose their own restrictions on employment and pre-employment background checks. We are in full compliance with APNA’s and INA’s Recommended Practices for Background Screening.


Is There A Refund Policy?

We will work with you if you are not satisfied at no additional cost.


What If I Have Questions Or Need Support?
