Should I request searches in all the jurisdictions revealed by the social security number trace?

You should order criminal searches only to cover addresses or jurisdictions that have been used in the past seven years. TruDiligence limits the reporting window for criminal activity to seven years, and searching jurisdictions prior to that typically will not reveal any additional information.
When using the rapid order function to assign criminal search criteria, there are some other key factors to remember. The No. 1 mistake is overlapping coverage. In most cases, the best search is a county-level criminal history. If cost is a factor and you are searching a particular state on a per-county basis, DO NOT additionally order the statewide search. Conversely, when cost is a factor and you have an applicant requiring more than a few counties in any particular state, run the statewide search and omit the counties. Although statewide searches typically are more expensive than county-level searches, the tables turn when the applicant has multiple (usually more than three) counties within a given state. The general rule when shaving costs is to run either county-level searches OR statewide searches, but not both. This will ensure you don’t overlap searches and compound the cost of your screen. If cost is not a factor and you want the most comprehensive screen available, run statewide searches along with county-level searches.
