Electronic Results Now Available for FBI Criminal History Clearance

The Department of Human Services (DHS), General Services (DGS), and the Pennsylvania State Police announced that Pennsylvanians obtaining a Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Criminal History Clearance will receive their results electronically if the clearance does not indicate a criminal history. Under Pennsylvania’s Child Protective Services Law, certain professions, volunteers, and prospective foster or adoptive parents are required to obtain clearances in order to work or volunteer with children. Three clearances are required under state law: Pennsylvania Child Abuse History Clearance, Pennsylvania State Police Criminal History Clearance, and the FBI Criminal History Clearance. Fingerprints are required to complete the FBI clearance and typically are delivered via mail or directly to the ordering agency. Now, when applicants apply to get fingerprinted through IDEMIA, also known as IdentoGo or MorphoTrust, results will be provided via a secure account. All applicants will still receive a copy of their clearances by mail.
