Your rap sheet, or criminal record on file with the FBI, is based on fingerprint
submissions received and retained by the FBI. Your FBI rap sheet may also contain
disposition data which is not fingerprint based, if reported to the FBI and the FBI
maintains the associated arrest record(s) supported by fingerprints. The rap sheet
you receive from the FBI may include information reported to the FBI from any source
including local, state and federal agencies who submit fingerprint-based
transactions to the FBI for retention. The rap sheet is only a snapshot in time,
containing retained information at the time of your “Departmental Order”
fingerprint-based inquiry. Your rap sheet will include reported arrests,
dispositions and correctional transactions supported by fingerprints. The FBI rap
sheet may also contain “wanted” / “warrant” information reported from other law
enforcement entities, when reported.
Access to one’s rap sheet or FBI report to challenge, update or correct is pursuant to Title 28 CFR
Part 16.30 to 16.34. To review the federal law that allows an individual to request a Departmental
