Background Check Requestsfrom Other StatesThe Federal Office of Child Care requirements for the Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) include having procedures for authorized individuals and agencies from other states to request background check information for individuals who have resided in Utah for the past five years. Following are those procedures:
Criminal Records There are two ways to request an individual's criminal records through the Utah Department of Public Safety.
- The individual can request their own criminal record directly from Public Safety by going to Utah Department of Public Safety Criminal Records. After submitting the required information and fee, they will receive a certified letter with their criminal record.
- A qualifying entity can request the individual's criminal record through the Utah Department of Public Safety. This is permitted by Utah Code Annotated 53-10-108 and Public Law 105-251. For more information and the request application, go to Utah Department of Public Safety Employment Background Check Forms. There is a $15.00 fee for either of the above options. For more information, contact Criminal Identification (BCI) at 801-965-4445, option #6, then option #2. They are open Mondays through Fridays from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm. (They are closed on major holidays.) Utah Sex Offender Registry Records The Utah Sex Offender Registry is managed by the Utah Department of Corrections and is accessible to the public. To see if an individual is listed in the Utah Sex Offender Registry, go to Utah Department of Corrections Sex and Kidnap Offender Notification and Registration.
