How long does a background check take to be completed?

The turnaround time on a background check can vary based on the types of searches conducted in your specific check. The majority of searches conducted through Sterling Volunteers will be completed in 24 to 72 hours. In certain cases, if criminal information is found in a background check or if the volunteer has lived in multiple jurisdictions, the search can take longer.
