Criminal History Background Checks

The Clerk of Courts Office does not provide background checks. You must obtain an official criminal history through the Pennsylvania State Police

The Clerk of Courts Office will provide copies of documents upon request. Requests must be submitted in writing and include the docket number(s), the specific documents that are being requested, and contact information for the requestor.  

Government agencies and any businesses are required to place the request on their letterhead. 

All requests are subject to and will be processed pursuant to the Pennsylvania Public Records Policy. Requests may be mailed, faxed, or hand delivered to the office. The copy fee is $0.25 per page. Certified records will be provided for an additional fee of $10.00 per record. 

You may also visit the  Pennsylvania Unified Judicial System website to locate criminal cases and to view or print the docket pages.
