Criminal Background Check


Copies of Georgia criminal history reports are available from the records department in the Sheriff's Office. Please have a valid Georgia photo I.D. at the time of the request.

Georgia Criminal history reports are available for the following purposes:

  • Employment background check
  • Firearms permit applications
  • Guardianship cases
  • Immigration cases

Two types of Georgia criminal history reports are available:

  • A lifetime report on yourself (complete adult misdemeanor and felony history - Georgia only)
  • A lifetime report on another person (complete adult felony history only - Georgia only)

Cost per report is $20  and payment must be cash or money order only.

The requesting person must present a valid Georgia photo I.D. for the report to be notarized by Sheriff's Office personnel. If the requester does not have a valid Georgia I.D. they will still be able to obtain the report, but it will not be notarized. If requesting a report on another person, you will need that person's full name, date of birth, and if at all possible, their social security number.

Reports require one business day for processing, and may be picked up at the Sheriff's Office at 758 Warrenton Rd. SE, Crawfordville, GA 30631, between the hours of 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.
