ADVISORY NOTICE When running a background check on a person with multiple last names, a good practice is to enter the names in the following formats: Smith Jones, Smith-Jones, and Smithjones, using the alias field to include the alternate spellings in the same search. Entering the names in this manner will increase the likelihood that all possible candidates will be returned in a search.
The Department of Justice name-based searches use the following matching criteria: Exact Date of Birth, exact Last Name, exact First Initial OR Exact Social Security Number, exact Last Name, exact First Initial AND
If a Wisconsin Unique Personal Identification Number (WiUPIN) was included in the search request and the WiUPIN submitted matches the WiUPIN associated with a successful challenge to a criminal history record a “No Record Found” will be returned. AND
If a potential candidate is found using the above matching criteria and the queried name matches the name of a Successful Challenger the candidate results will exclude comparison to alias names contained within the candidate record.
The Wisconsin Department of Justice records are maintained in accordance with s. 165.83 Wis. Stats. and may not contain all information maintained by local police departments, courts, and federal agencies, such as the FBI.
It is also important to note that criminal data is subject to change; therefore, the outcome of Department of Justice name searches may vary over time.
