Services.IN.gov: Limited Criminal History

A Limited Criminal History report contains only felonies and misdemeanor arrests within the State of Indiana. A Limited Criminal History search is based upon a subject's name, date of birth, race, and gender, and if needed, Social Security Number and place of birth. This report does not give the most comprehensive information, as it does not include criminal history information from other states. Please consider using the fingerprint based National Full Criminal History to obtain the most complete criminal history report available.

If you are uncertain which type of Criminal History Service you need, please check with the person or organization that asked you to obtain your criminal history.

Completeness of this information is based upon county participation.

Recently, we updated and improved the Limited Criminal History check system. It now includes additional data fields to provide more conclusive and accurate results. There are additional changes that will not be noticed by the user, however all will greatly improve the overall LCH process.

The results that you get from this updated system will be the following:

  • ON FILE – Criminal Record Found
  • INCONCLUSIVE RESULTS
  • NO RECORDS FOUND

As a reminder, the Limited Criminal History product is name and date of birth check of Indiana only records.
