The Criminal Records Unit provides a variety of records, which are available to the public. The reports most frequently requested fall into three categories: traffic accident reports, criminal record checks, and incident reports. By County Ordinance, a fee is collected for each copy of a report.
Traffic Accident Report: fee ($5.00) Any person involved or injured in the accident, his/her attorney, or the person’s insurance company may receive a copy of the accident report. A driver’s license or other picture identification must be presented prior to reports being released. Requests for reports may be handled by mail or in person.
Criminal Record Check: fee ($5.00) The record subject must appear in person at the Public Safety Building in order to initiate a criminal record check. The requester must present two (2) forms of identification, one of which must be a photo identification. The only acceptable forms of identification are current driver’s license, passport, birth certificate, military identification or social security card. This transcript will show ONLY offenses for which you WERE NOT fingerprinted, offenses ONLY in Henrico County, and DOES NOT include traffic or juvenile offenses. More extensive criminal information must be obtained from the State Police headquarters on Midlothian Tpk. Traffic offense transcripts can be obtained from Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV).
Incident/Offense Reports: fee ($10.00) The majority of incident reports may be released to the victim or reporting person. In cases involving loss of or damaged property, the report may also be released to the insurance company. Occasionally, there will be a delay in receiving the report because the officer or investigator’s approval to release the report may be necessary. A photo identification, such as a driver’s license, must be presented prior to receiving reports.
Fingerprint Services: fee ($10.00 for first card/$5.00 each for any additional cards) The Criminal Records Unit also provides fingerprinting services for persons seeking employment and any other need dictated by law. The person requesting services must fill out and submit the Criminal Records Request Form and present two (2) forms of identification, one of which must be a photo identification. The only acceptable forms of identification are: a current driver’s license, passport, birth certificate, military identification, social security card, voter registration card, vehicle registration, green card/permanent residence card, or Certificate of Naturalization card. Identification must be original (no copies) and valid.
Note that fingerprinting services are from 8:00 AM until 3:30 PM (except holidays.) We cannot fingerprint for INS purposes.
