ASG is known as a expert Ohio background check firm for private individuals, attorneys and corporations since 1999. If you need real information from a background check and not fluff or database dump, you want ASG.

A real background check involves much more than a one-click instant database search. Ohio has many types of records to be searched, from local police departments to the complete Ohio court system, and a large number of those cannot be searched online or instantly. Our team can help you determine which records matter most to help address your concerns and we can quickly tailor a background check that gives you what you need quickly and affordably.

As of 2016, Ohio has an estimated population of 11,614,373 and reported statistics include 522 murders, 5,441 rapes, 12,617 robberies, 15,793 assaults and these are just the reported crimes. With statistics like these, the need for an accurate, professionally produced, Ohio background check becomes obvious.
