Due to a changeover in computer systems by the Marion County Courts, Marion County Prosecutor’s Office and Marion County Sheriff’s Department, beginning June 6, 2014 the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department will temporarily be unable to provide local criminal history information.
Until a software enhancement is completed, state-wide criminal histories may be obtained from the Indiana State Police.
A Limited Criminal History (LCH) contains only felony and Class A misdemeanor arrests within the state of Indiana. Completeness of this information is based upon county participation. Additional information regarding the process can be found online at: .
For email-in requests and requests made in person:
- Effective May 1, 2014, money orders will be the only acceptable form of payment for limited criminal history background reports. Money orders must be made out to the “State of Indiana” and submitted in person or mailed to:
Indiana State Police
Criminal History, Limited Check,
P.O. Box 6188
