If you want your full federal criminal record report, you can pay the FBI a small fee for something called an Identity History Summary.
Identity History Summaries
An Identity History Summary is simply a criminal record. Informally, it is known as a person’s rap sheet. This report contains any and all information kept by the federal government, including any criminal and non-criminal related fingerprint data. Non-criminal data may include information regarding federal employment, naturalization, or military service. Criminal-related items of information on such reports will include arrests, the name of arresting agencies, charges, convictions, disposition reports, and more.
How To Get One
The only person who can request an identity history check or challenge is the person themselves. Whether you wish to have a copy of your criminal history, or you need to prove that one does not exist for you, the only person who can request it is you. For example, you cannot request this report for your child, your spouse, or an elderly parent.
Where to Get an Identity History Summary
The U.S. Department of Justice Order 556-73, or Departmental Order, has a set schedule of rules and regulations for obtaining an identity history summary. To begin, you will need to request an Applicant Information Form on the official FBI website. From there, you need to complete their Standard Fingerprint Form and pay a processing fee to the FBI CJIS Division in Clarksburg, West Virginia. After you fill out all the forms, you will send them via mail to the FBI. You may also electronically submit your request.
