Pennsylvania Background Checks

Free Background Checks

In Pennsylvania you can run a background check through a system the government provides however there is a still a fee associated with the usage of the system and therefore a free bakcground check does not really exist in Pennsylvania. Of course you can also use other services who would do the Pennsylvania background check search for you online and provide you a Pennsylvania background check report for a fee. The advantage of other services are that you can choose different levels of report and if you need a nationwide criminal report they wiill provide you with that service whereas governmental authorities or PATCH in Pennsylvania will only provide you with a background check in Pennsylvania.



 

Why does PATCH exist?

PATCH enables the public or consumers to run criminal Pennsylvania background checks. The database was created and is maintained in accordance with Pennsylvania's Criminal History Information Act, Crimes Code. This Act also regulates the Pennsylvania State Police (PSP) to communicate criminal history data into criminal justice agencies and individuals on request. Criminal justice agencies can access anyone's criminal history record information (CHRI). Requests made by noncriminal justice agencies and individuals are subject to rules outlined in the law.

PATCH website provides information to registered and non-registered users in regards to criminal history information on individuals. Users must agree rules outlined by the Criminal History Record Information Act.

A $10.00 non-refundable fee is payable for each request, regardless of outcome. Be careful not to misspell name or information as you will be charged for misspelling, duplicate submissions and other user errors.

An email address is required in order to receive vital information from the PATCH. Businesses may also apply for a PATCH account. When a business application is approved, an account will be established with a user name and password which will be emailed.
