The Details:

The FBI has implemented a new option to electronically submit requests and receive responses for identity History Summary Checks and Identity History Summary Challenges. The new eDO option will allow for faster processing of requests.

For a fee, the FBI can provide individuals with an Identity History Summary, often referred to as a criminal history record or a “rap sheet,” listing certain information taken from fingerprint submissions kept by the FBI and related to arrests and, in some instances, federal employment, naturalization, or military service.

If the fingerprint submissions are related to an arrest, the Identity History Summary includes the name of the agency that submitted the fingerprints to the FBI, the date of the arrest, the arrest charge, and the disposition of the arrest, if known. All arrest information included in an Identity History Summary is obtained from fingerprint submissions, disposition reports, and other information submitted by authorized criminal justice agencies.

The U.S. Department of Justice Order 556-73, also known as Departmental Order, establishes rules and regulations for you to obtain a copy of your Identity History Summary for review or proof that one does not exist.
