The Ohio Attorney General’s Bureau of Criminal Investigation regularly processes about 1 million background checks annually. Through Webcheck, agencies transmit fingerprints and other data electronically to BCI, to be compared against a database of criminal fingerprints to determine if an individual has a criminal record. BCI then issues a background report that helps schools, hospitals, daycare centers, and other employers make critical hiring decisions quickly and with confidence.

Hours of Operation (Effective April 6, 2021):

Applications will be processed on a first come, first served basis during the following hours:

Tuesday 9AM – 2PM
