Records FAQs

How can I obtain a copy of my entire criminal record?

Access to criminal history summary records maintained by the California Department of Justice is restricted by law to legitimate law enforcement purposes and authorized Applicant Agencies.  Individuals have the right to request a copy of their own criminal history record from the department to review the information for accuracy and completeness. Requests from third parties are not authorized and cannot be honored by the department. If you would like to review the accuracy and completeness of your own criminal history record follow the instructions listed on the Attorney General’s website.
