I acknowledge that a Computerized Criminal History (CCH) check will be performed by accessing the Texas Department of Public Safety Secure Website and will be based on name and DOB identifiers I supply. (This is not a consent form.) Authority
for this agency to access an individual’s criminal history data may be found in Texas Government Code 411; subchapter F.
Name-based information is not an exact search and only fingerprint record searches represent true identification to criminal history, therefore the organization conducting the criminal history check is
not allowed to discuss with me any criminal history record information obtained using this method. The agency may request that I have a
fingerprint search performed to clear any misidentification based on the result of the name and DOB search. Once this process is completed the information on my fingerprint criminal history record may be discussed with me. In order to complete the process I must make an appointment with the Fingerprint Applicant Services of Texas (FAST) as instructed online at www.txdps.state.tx.us
/Crime Records/Review of
Personal Criminal History
or by calling the DPS Program Vendor at 1-888-467-2080,
submit a full and
complete set of fingerprints, request a copy be sent
to the agency listed below, and pay a fee of $24.95 to
the fingerprinting services company.
