Acloché is a certified WebCheck™ provider, serving as a local and convenient resource for electronic fingerprint-based background checks. Through WebCheck™, Acloché transmits fingerprints and other data electronically to the Ohio BCI or the FBI to be compared against a database of criminal fingerprints to determine if an individual has a criminal record. A WebCheck™ background report is issued to help schools, medical facilities, daycare centers, licensing boards, and many other employers and entities to make informed hiring decisions and maintain compliance with Federal, state, and local requirements.
We provide the following types of background checks:
- Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation (BCI)
- FBI Background Check
