Tips on virginia Background Searches

Virginia criminal records may be needed for various professional and nonprofessional reasons. Concerns about personal safety may lead an individual to a registered sex offenders website for the state or inmate and parole records. Companies often conduct background checks prior to hiring people. Sometimes people need to check their own criminal history record to get clearance to work for the state or obtain a license or special certification. Others may want to adopt a child from another country, and need to prove that they have a clear record.

Gaining access to Virginia criminal records is a simple matter of contacting the Virginia State Police. There are two types of criminal history reports that can be requested from the state police website. The first is for the general public, individuals and private companies. These people will use the Criminal History Records Check form SP-167 available for print on the state police website. The form must have a notary seal in order for the request to be honored.

Other entities such as Adult Day Care Centers, Unlicensed or Licensed Child Care Centers, cities, counties, and other non-criminal justice agencies need to submit a form SP-230, which does not need to be notarized.
