Background Checks

Fingerprints Cards – Fingerprint cards are done only on Wednesdays and Thursdays (see times below). The fee is $30 and you must show proof of identify with a state-issued photo identification. Correct change is expected.

Background WebChecks – The Shelby County Sheriff’s Office provides background histories using the Ohio BCI/FBI Webcheck service. We are available during normal business hours (see times below) to conduct these checks. A fee of $35 is charged for an Ohio background check, $30 for a FBI only check, or $65 for both checks. Please attempt to bring the correct change in form of cash, cashier’s check, or money order.

Local Background Checks – The Shelby County Sheriff’s Office will provide background records from our agency only. This is not a complete check of all county systems, nor a statewide check. This is documentation from our systems only. The fee is $3.00.

NOTE: To speed up the WebCheck process, please download and print the WebCheck Request Form, complete it and bring it with you to the Sheriff’s Office.
