Ask your local sheriff's office or police department to get a copy of your criminal history record, or visit Georgia Felon Search to do the same.
- If your state criminal history record is inaccurate, or your identity has been mistakenly matched with another's record, you'll need to submit your fingerprints to the Georgia Crime Information Center. You can either schedule an appointment for fingerprinting directly with the center or send in fingerprints that you have taken at your local law enforcement agency.
- To request a copy of your national criminal history record, you'll need to contact the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
First, decide what type of criminal history record check you want run. If you'd like a name-based record check, contact your local law enforcement agency for more information. If, however, you'd like a fingerprint-based record check, you'll need to fill out a Georgia Crime Information Center Service Agreement and complete an enrollment form for the Georgia Applicant Processing Service (GAPS). Read more about this.
After the Georgia Bureau of Investigation assigns you an originating agency code and Cogent Systems confirms your registration by e-mail, you can perform your record checks.
