In the wake of some recent stories toting the perceived benefits of fingerprint checks for workers, CDIA wants to remind readers that name-based criminal background checks are the most effective and thorough way to screen out those with a criminal past.  For example, FBI Assistant Director Stephen Morris said that “[t]he misnomer is that FBI has everything that exists on criminal history records in some big repository, and that’s simply not true.”  Additional background is laid out in an op-ed to the Albuquerque Journal.
