Statewide criminal history transcript
You can get a “Statewide Criminal History Transcript” from the Illinois State Police (ISP). This document includes all arrests and convictions that happened in Illinois.
You will need to get your fingerprints taken. You can do this by contacting the ISP here:
Illinois State Police, Bureau of Identification
260 N. Chicago St.
Joliet, IL 60432
Monday – Friday, 8 am – 4 pm
(815) 740-5160 – select option 2
You can also go to any licensed live scan fingerprint vendor. They will take your fingerprints and send your information to the ISP.
The ISP will email you an encrypted version of your report. In order to read your report, you’ll need to receive an online permission certificate and an encryption application for your computer or you can pick it up at a later date in the office where you ordered the transcript.
