Why Check My FBI Criminal Report?

Personal Review/Challenge

Federal regulations mandate that all U.S. Citizens and Permanent Legal Residents have access to their FBI Criminal Report for personal review. You may review your personal “rap sheet” at any time to confirm its accuracy. 

Reviewing your official FBI Identification Record, and correcting inaccurate information, could put you on a new career path in today’s security-conscious work environment. 

A 2010 survey conducted by the Society for Human Resource Management estimates that 92% of employers conduct a criminal background check. You may want to review your FBI Criminal Report before your prospective employer does.

Foreign Travel or Work

Some foreign embassies ask that you provide a copy of your criminal history record when requesting travel authorization. You may utilize the services provided by Proficiency Background Service to obtain a copy of your FBI Criminal Report, which can satisfy this requirement.

While everyone prefers to plan international travel well in advance, many busy business travelers know that flying at the last minute goes with the territory. 

Work or Student Visas

When applying for a Work Visa or Student Visa, some countries require a copy of your criminal history as part of the background investigation. 

Adoption Requirements

Most states, and some foreign countries, require a complete criminal history check when applying to adopt a child.

Attorney Requests

To ensure proper legal representation, federal regulations allow you to request a copy of your personal criminal history report and have it sent directly to your attorney.

To have your official FBI Criminal Report sent to your attorney’s office, just include a signed Attorney Release Form (download here), printed on your attorney’s letterhead, along with the rest of your forms.

Court Related Matters

With arrest, conviction, and sentencing information from all 50 U.S. States, the District of Columbia, and the U.S. Territories of Puerto Rico, Guam, and the Virgin Islands, the Criminal Justice Information System (CJIS) at the FBI is very busy.
