The Oklahoma Open Records Act was established to ensure and facilitate the public’s right of access to and review of government records. The privacy interests of individuals are adequately protected in the specific exceptions to the Oklahoma Open Records Act or in the Statutes, which create or require the records.
Pursuant to the Oklahoma Open Records Act, Title 51 § 24.A.5.2, all requests for Criminal History Record Information must include at least the full name and date of birth of the subject to be searched. Additional identifiers such as aliases (i.e. maiden names, nicknames) and social security numbers, if known, should be provided resulting in a more complete search of the Criminal History Record files.
State Fingerprint Searches include a Name Based Search and require a set of fingerprint cards.
Please check with your local sheriff or police department to arrange fingerprinting services.
If you require a separate Name Search in addition to the State Fingerprint Search, please put each request on a separate form.
- Effective, August 1, 2009, there will be a $2.00 fee for each search of the Oklahoma Department of Corrections Violent Offender Database and a $2.00 fee for each search of the Oklahoma Department of Corrections Sex Offender Database. The criminal history request form will be updated with the required fee information 2 weeks prior to the new fees' effective date.
