The Police Department provides criminal histories as part of a background check for individuals and employers. To obtain a criminal history and background check, you must report, in person, to the Records Division of the Police Department. When you report, you must present a valid government issued ID and complete a consent form before a criminal history and background check can be initiated. Background checks cost $30.00 each.

The Consent to Obtain Criminal History Form may be downloaded and completed by clicking here.
