Additional Information

District personnel will be fingerprinted to check the criminal history records of the State of Arizona and Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). If you have a criminal record, the officials making a determination of your suitability for employment will allow you the opportunity to complete or challenge the accuracy of the information on record. You will receive a reasonable amount of time to correct or complete the record (or decline to do so) before officials deny you employment based on information in the criminal record.

The procedures for obtaining a change, correction, or updating of your FBI criminal history record are set forth in Title 28, code of Federal Regulations (CFR), Section 16.30 through 16.34. Visit the FBI website for Information on how to review and challenge your FBI criminal history record under "Services" and then "Identity History Summary Checks," or by calling (304) 625-5590.

To obtain a copy of your Arizona Criminal History in order to review/update/correct the record, contact the Arizona Department of Public Safety Criminal History Records Unit at (602) 223-2222 to obtain a fingerprint card and a Review and Challenge packet. Information about the review and challenge process can be found on the DPS website.
