How to submit a request for Criminal History
To perform a record check request, at a minimum you must furnish the subject's Name and Date of Birth. The subject's Social Security Number, Sex, Race, Maiden Name, and/or Aliases may also be entered as additional identifying information. Once a criminal history check has been requested, one of the following possible responses will be immediately received: Pending , No Record, or Request Under Review.
A Pending response indicates that a response from the Criminal History system did not come back quick enough. If you received a Pending response, please check the status of this request at a later time.
A response of No Record indicates that, based on the data entered by the user, that there is no criminal history information contained in the files of the Pennsylvania State Police Central Repository.
A response of Request Under Review does not indicate a criminal record.
