Background Information

  • Federal law specifically prohibits the FBI criminal background check from being disclosed to anyone other than a federal or state agency.

    See Title 28, United States Code, Section 534(a) and (b).

    This prohibition has been held to apply even when the request is from the person who is the subject of those records.  

    If you are needing a copy of your backgound check sent to another agency that agency will need to request a copy on your behalf.
