The Bureau of Criminal Investigation (BCI), a section of the Attorney General’s Office is North Dakota’s central repository for criminal history information. It compiles North Dakota Arrest Records for use by law enforcement, the courts, and the public. North Dakota state law considers private investigators and the general public as ‘non-criminal justice’ entities and limits the criminal history record information accessible by them. Requests can be made in person or by mail.
Fingerprint-based searches are recommended by the BCI for accuracy. All applications must consist the following: a completed official request form, $15 search fee and two identifying markers such as fingerprints, social security number or date of birth of the subject. Limited data may be given to non-criminal justice agencies and private individuals. Only self-requests for personal criminal records and authorized state agencies and law enforcers can obtain detailed information. Juvenile records, federal records, other states’ records, dropped or dismissed charges and generally records which are more than 3 years old are not available to the public.

The BCI will also send out a notification to anyone whose North Dakota Arrest Records have been released unless a signed authorization is included in the application. Those who wish to conduct discreet third-party checks must then turn to private records providers. That’s no sweat ‘cos many of these commercial players actually rock. Discreet, instant and 24/7, they’re also very reasonably priced. Give one a try here. Yes, check out Verify.
