WEBCHECK is an Internet-based program for civilian background checks. The program reduces the return rate from 4-6 weeks, to as little as 48 hours.  Since 1993, the Ohio General Assembly passed several state laws requiring background checks for certain individuals who work with children, the elderly and insurance agents. This is the latest and greatest technique in processing accurate background checks in a timely manner.
PrintChek, LLC is an authorized vendor of the Bureau of Criminal Identification and Investigation (BCI&I) and licensed through WebCheck.

PrintChek, LLC teams up with InfoCorp Investigative Services, LLC to offer both background checks through fingerprinting as well as various investigative services.
