What about criminal background checks for interpreters?

In keeping with a directive from the Administrative Office of the United States Courts, all interpreters contracted for work in court must undergo a background check by the U.S. Marshal. Interpreters must also provide their fingerprints for an FBI fingerprint check. Once the interpreter is cleared by the U.S. Marshal and the FBI, an ID tag with the interpreter’s picture, signed by the Clerk, is given to the interpreter prior to his or her first assignment. The interpreter is advised to display the tag at all times while on assignment.
