Limited criminal histories may be obtained for pre-employment checks by potential employers and in a number of other circumstances outlined by Indiana State Law. You can also get a copy of your own criminal history by coming to the IPD Citizen's Service Office. The office is located in room E100 on the first floor of the east (Police) wing of the City-County Building and is open Monday through Friday, 8:00 AM to 4:30 PM. You can also obtain a history through the mail by making a written request to the Citizens' Services Desk, Suite E100, 50 North Alabama Street, Indianapolis, IN 46204. For more information please call (317) 327-3410.

The cost of a limited criminal history is $10.00. Three full business days are needed to process a request.

Criminal histories may be checked by name and date of birth or verified by fingerprints. Where checks are made by name and date of birth only, the Citizens' Services Desk cannot guarantee that the record of the individual furnished is actually the record of the individual whose record was requested. A full set of fingerprints is needed to assure accuracy. You can have fingerprints taken at the Citizens' Services Desk, or you may have prints taken at your local law enforcement agency on their print card and mail the card to the Citizens' Services Desk with your written request for the record.

By State law, the limited criminal history includes all Marion County cases that have a disposition as well as Marion County cases without a disposition- if the case is less than one year old. Cases older than one year without a disposition are not included. The IPD limited criminal history contains only arrests made in Marion County. For charges outside of Marion County, it is necessary to contact the police agency in that area.

Limited Criminal Histories and related information is also available on-line as a paid subscription service through CivicNet. CivicNet is the business-oriented web site of the Indianapolis / Marion County Government. For more information follow this link or click on the CivicNet Icon below
