Question Who can access criminal history information?

Answer Criminal history information is available to law enforcement agencies for criminal justice purposes. It is also accessible in connection with certain types of employment, licenses and permits. Individuals can obtain and review their own criminal history record for the purpose of challenging the accuracy and completeness of that record. You may also request a copy of your own criminal history record for personal use. If no record exists, a statement to that effect will be provided. To obtain a copy of your criminal history record, request an informational packet from the Records Review Unit of the New York State Division of Criminal Justice Services.
