Public Criminal Records:

New!

The State Bureau of Investigations, with the collaboration of the Department of Public Safety, has placed Public Criminal Record Requests online! As a subscriber, you may request an individual’s criminal record by simply entering their first name, last name and date of birth. You may request that the results be sent to you via email or through postal mail and the results may be returned within two hours. If a record has not yet been added to the system, this request may require manual intervention and could take up to 12 weeks.

Because you are a subscriber you are able to check the status of your requests and view submitted requests for up to 30 days by selecting View Past Request and Billing Information on the Subscriber Account Management webpage. For Maine Subscribers the fee is $15.00 per request and for out-of-state subscribers the fee is $25.00 per request.
