FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

Q: HOW DO I REGISTER MY BUSINESS ONLINE SO I CAN BE VIEWED IN THE CRIME FREE CIRCLE?
A:
Though your listing is free on CFC you must make the commitment to certify your employees as Crime Free. They must pass our criminal investigation criteria and be recertified each year. To sign up for this certification (click here) go to registration page.

Q: WHAT DOES USING CRIME FREE EMPLOYEES MEAN?
A:
CrimShield and CFC main purpose is to certify the employees not the company. It is the employees who work on premises and are around families. CrimShield certifies each employee by completing a detailed investigation and then issues each employee a certification badge they can wear on the jobsites. These certification badges are custom to the company they work for. These badges create more of a professional look and feel.


Q: HOW MUCH DOES IT COSTS PER EMPLOYEE FOR A CRIMSHIELD CERTIFICATION?
A:
Our prices start at $54.95 for the investigation.

Q: WHAT OTHER SERVICES DO YOU OFFER EMPLOYERS BESIDES THE INVESTIGATION?
A:
CrimShield offers Drug Testing, MVR’s, E-Verify.

Q: WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CRIMSHIELD AND CRIME FREE CIRCLE?
A:
CrimShield, Inc. is the backbone behind the certifications. Their investigators complete all the investigations and issue the Crime Free certification. Crime Free Circle is a list of those companies who use Crime Free Certified Employees. This is a great tool to verify the person in your home is listed under the company as being Crime Free. It also serves as a great list of companies to hire if you do not already have a company you work with. This site offers discounts, coupons, and peace of mind that hiring crime free individual can give.

Q: WHAT SETS CFC APART FROM THE OTHER REFERRAL SERVICES AROUND THE U.S.?
A:
Most referral companies focus on qualifying the companies. Do they have insurance? Are they bonded? Many of them also give the members the ability to rate these companies to ensure only the best companies are being referred. CFC is no different in these arenas in that we add a level of safety up and over those benefits. Just because the owner and company check out does not always mean the person in your home around your family has been investigated. The fact is good companies hire individuals with criminal histories all the time. So think of getting all the benefits of every other referral service, just know the individual who will be around you is Crime Free.

Q: WHAT IF I HAVE SOMEONE WORKING FOR ME THAT HAS A CRIMINAL PAST. CAN MY COMPANY BE CERTIFIED.
A:
CrimShield or CFC does not certify a company. We only certify employees. Customers should always request a CrimShield certified employee when hiring your company. We hope companies see the benefits of an entire Crime Free workforce but we know there are certain jobs that do not need a Crime Free Certification.

Q: HOW OFTEN DOES A CRIMSHIELD CERTIFICATION NEED TO BE RENEWED.
A:
Annually. We find 3% of the workforce loses their ability to have our certification from year to year. Annual investigations insure your employees are not a liability and shows your commitment to your employees.
