You will only be provided access to the information on Subject Individuals that have been provided to you by DHS - Background Check Unit. Unauthorized access of this site or improper use of the information provided may result in a variety of penalties up to and including criminal prosecution.

** If you are a Subject Individual (Employment Applicant), please go to:

9/7/2016:  YOU MUST HAVE THE SUBJECT INDIVIDUAL'S SIGNATURE TO RUN A BACKGROUND CHECK.  This means you must have one of the following:
1) You must have the SI completing the background check disclosures through CRIMS, including the SI's completion of an electronic signature (the SI completes an electronic signature after you have sent an email to the SI through CRIMS to complete his/her data entry); OR
2) You have completed data entry for the SI. You must have Section 2 of the paper 301 Background Check Request Form completed and attached to the CRIMS record for this SI when you submit the background check through CRIMS to BCU.  Always give the SI the time and privacy to complete and sign Section 2 of the  Background Check Request Form.

4/13/2016 MAJOR CHANGE FROM OREGON STATE POLICE.  In order to comply with FBI guidelines, OSP has changed how BCU can view criminal record results.  The only way to complete an accurate and thorough check is to require fingerprints on many SIs.  Please expect to see a rise in the number of your SIs needing fingerprints, even if they never needed fingerprints in the past.

3/24/2016. If your SI is subject to the LTCR, PLEASE NOTE:  If the SI reports being on the LTCR, ask him/her for a copy of a previous approval letter or how the SI's name was previously entered into CRIMS. ONLY AN EXACT MATCH of first and last name will result in a match on the LTCR.
