What is an FBI Criminal History Report?
IdentoGO Centers provide a fast, convenient way to request your FBI Criminal History Report or "rap sheet,” summarizing felony criminal arrest and conviction records submitted from all 50 states and the District of Columbia to the FBI. This report can be requested either by submitting fingerprints electronically from an IdentoGO Center offering this service, or by submitting hard fingerprint cards to our IdentoGO card scan facility. Each location is staffed with professionally trained Enrollment Agents using highly secure and state-of-the-art technology to ensure that you receive the best quality service.
The FBI Criminal History Report is generated from the fingerprint-based criminal record check conducted using the FBI’s Integrated Automated Fingerprint Identification System (IAFIS) which searches the National Criminal History Repository database. If records exist, a detailed report, including information retained by the FBI in connection to a felony arrest, such as arresting agency name, date of arrest, the arrest charge, and the disposition of the arrest, if known by the FBI, is included in the report. This is often referred to as a “rap sheet.”
This service is provided in accordance with U.S. Departmental Order 556-73. The Departmental Order states that an individual may obtain a copy of his/her FBI criminal identification record, upon request, for review and correction purposes, to challenge the information on record, and other court-related matters.
