These Non-Fingerprint name based check requests use the individual’s name, sex, race, and date of birth to search the Illinois State Police’s computerized criminal history record files. Please note: It is common for criminal offenders to use alias names and dates of birth which could adversely affect the results of a non-fingerprint search. This type of background check will help decide if fingerprinting would be suggested for a more complete background check.

Who can utilize a Name based Check?

  • Personal Review
  • Licensing
  • Regulations regarding Nursing Home residents
  • Housing or Rental applications
  • Contractors (Household/office work)
  • Pre-Employment
  • Volunteer work
  • Determine if a Live Scan Fingerprint Background Check is necessary for a more complete & accurate result

IMPORTANT INFORMATION: If your employer is requesting a fingerprint-based check, the name-based check will not suffice. If you would like to see what’s on your Illinois record before your employer sends you to do fingerprints, the name-based check can help you with that.

The name-based check results will be emailed to the email provided in the below Name-based Check Application. All transactions are final.
