The mission of the Criminal Records Unit is to obtain, store, and disseminate Criminal History Record Information (CHRI) on all criminal arrests and dispositions of individuals charged with a criminal offense in New Hampshire. In support of that mission the Criminal Records Unit maintains the Automated Fingerprint Identification System (AFIS), which receives and processes criminal and applicant fingerprint information for the Central Repository and the FBI criminal record database. CHRI is stored in the Unit’s Central Repository and is the only source for an individual’s complete criminal history for all of New Hampshire.

To obtain criminal history record information you may:

  1. Apply in person with a primary identification (a current, valid and unexpired picture I.D.- i.e. driver’s license or passport)

  3. Mail in an application notarized by either a Notary Public or Justice of the Peace; OR
  4. A release to a third party requires a similar notarization and a third party signature.
