Name Based Background Check
To request this check, submit a completed Name Based Criminal Background Check Form and required fee. Be aware it is not uncommon for criminal offenders to use alias names and false dates of birth, which would adversely affect the completeness and accuracy of a non-fingerprint based search of the Idaho Criminal History Repository. Idaho law does not require a waiver. However, without a waiver, any arrest more than 12 months old, without a disposition, cannot be given to a non-criminal justice agency. The signature date on waivers must be within 180 days of the name check submission.
The required fee for a name based check is $20.00. We will accept payment by cash check or credit/debit card. There will be an additional processing fee of $1.00 plus 3% of the total transaction for all payments made by credit or debit card. Our Payment Authorization Form must be completed and sent to us along with the Name Based Background Check Form and required fee. Please make sure to follow the instuctions on all forms.
