I used to live in Alaska, but no longer do. How can I obtain a copy of my Criminal History Record from Alaska?
As the subject of a criminal history record maintained by the Alaska Central Repository of Criminal History, you are entitled to view or purchase a copy of all criminal justice information in our files. You may request either a 'name based' check which is the
Report Available to the Record Subject form or a fingerprint based check.
The fee for a name-based check is $20. You must submit a check or money order
along with the appropriate form Report Available to the Record Subject form to the Criminal Records & Identification Bureau at the address listed on the form.
If you require a fingerprint based background check, complete a standard FBI Applicant fingerprint card (FD-258) at a local law enforcement agency or local fingerprint service provider (you may NOT roll your own fingerprints). Submit the fingerprints, the $35 fee, and a cover letter that includes the reason for
your request and mailing address to:
Alaska Department of Public Safety
5700 E. Tudor Road
Anchorage, AK 99507
Attn: Criminal Records & Identification Bureau
We will complete the background check and mail the response to the address you list on your cover letter. Current turnaround time for these requests is
approximately 3 weeks.
If you are outside the United States: please note that we cannot process applicant fingerprint cards submitted on any form but an FD-258. If local fingerprint service providers do not stock the FD-258, please contact us about obtaining a blank form. Applicant fingerprints submitted on alternate forms will be returned unprocessed.
