Criminal records checks can be requested in person or by submitting a criminal history record check form located on the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation website through fax or mail. All requests made by mail must include a self-addressed stamped return envelope, and requests must be clearly typed or printed.

The full name and date of birth, all known aliases of the requested search and the purpose for the search must be included in the request form. Sex, race, age and Social Security Number are not required for the search, but if included, could generate a more thorough report on the individual.

Requests made in person generally take about 15 minutes, while requests sent through mail take 1 to 3 weeks. Faxed requests take about 5 to 8 business days to complete.

The report will contain any finger print related arrests on file in the state of Oklahoma, both misdemeanor and felony. Driving records are not part of the report and are not available to the public as part of the criminal search. For an additional fee, the sexual offender database will be searched as part of the service.
