Criminal reports contain information about offenses that a person has committed as well as time served in a correctional facilities or prison.

The State makes the reports available via name-based search or fingerprint-based search. Cost for the criminal report varies depending on the procedure and type of criminal report that one would request from the Office.

Not all records or documents are available for public perusal. The State differentiates these records as to the purpose of the request that a person provides to the Office. A non-criminal purpose would mean retrieving copies of one’s criminal records such as arrest reports. Criminal justice purposes are only available to local law enforcement agencies and contain full details of the crime report including the trial procedure, conviction and the result of the trial.
