Important Notes

  • Price: The cost of the name check is $30.00. Payment is required at the time of the request to initiate the record check. All transactions are final and non-refundable.
  • The name check results will be delivered to the email address provided in the application.
  • A name-based criminal records check is a request that is based on personal identifiers. Such requests will result in a search of the Illinois State Police (ISP) criminal history record files to produce a subject record which matches identifiers used in the search (e.g., name, sex, race, and date of birth).
  • A name inquiry has the potential of producing multiple “hits”. This means that the data provided may match more than one subject. A fingerprints-based check may be required to obtain correct criminal record data.
  • Please note that it is not uncommon for an individual to use an alias name or incorrect date of birth. If a name-based check is submitted with personal identifiers that do not match the personal identifiers in the ISP criminal history database, the correct information may not be returned. To avoid inaccuracies, an applicant may want to consider a fingerprint-based search of the ISP's criminal history record files.
