WebCheck utilizes the Internet to electronically transfer fingerprints and other data to the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Identification and Investigation (BCI&I) in London, Ohio.   The fingerprints and information from an applicant’s Driver’s License or Ohio Identification Card’s magnetic strip is encrypted and electronically stored in the computer. The computer then sends the encrypted information over the internet to BCI&I, which automatically compares the information against fingerprints and criminal histories stored in the Ohio Automated Fingerprint Identification System (AFIS) database. Once fingerprints and I.D. are scanned, our agency should receive results within 14-30 business days unless a “hit or match” is detected. If a “hit or match” is detected the results will be mailed directly from BCI&I to the address provided by the applicant. If you are an employer or agency and want the results mailed directly to you, instruct your applicants to provide our record check clerk with your business mailing address, NOT the address of the applicants.

Fingerprint Cards Only:  

Some persons want to have inked fingerprint cards completed at our jail to personally mail to an employer or other agency. The cost for rolling inked fingerprint cards is $10.00 (cash, exact change) for each card.  This process is done at the Jail, located adjacent to the Clermont County Municipal Court. Hours are from 8:00 AM to 6:00 PM, 7 days a week.  The Municipal Court parking lot, near the right side of the building, has convenient parking close to the public jail entrance sidewalk. The Municipal Court address is 4430 State Route 222 Batavia, Ohio 45103.

Online Local Public Record Check:

For many employers local Clermont county record checks are all that is required. Though the Clermont County Sheriff’s Office does not provide local record checks, county record checks can be obtained through the Clermont County Clerk of Courts website without cost. Utilize the ‘Case Access’ link at their internet website to obtain Clermont County record check information. The Clerk’s website is http://www.clermontclerk.org/. The Clerk’s Office website contains Common Pleas records back to 1988 and Municipal Court records back to May, 1996. If you need to research records before these dates you will need to contact the Clerk’s Office to perform a manual search.
