Backgrounds Checks

The Records Office also completes background checks using the CCSO Office Records’ Computerized Data Base. Our Records Office can only check our agency’s records. Background checks are normally requested for Self Defense Act (Weapons Carry) Licenses, CLEET certificates, job applications, military recruiting, adoptions, and real estate licenses.

The Records Office also completes fingerprints. Rolled inked impressions are taken and placed on a ten digit fingerprint card.  The CCSO does not utilize a computerized fingerprint system.  The Records Office provides the fingerprint cards and the cost for being finger printed is $5.00 a card. Most companies or organizations required a set (2) fingerprint cards. Fingerprinting is only done on Wednesday from 8 am to 3 pm at the Cleveland County Detention Center located at 2550 West Franklin Rd in Norman.
