The State of Connecticut Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection, Division of State Police, Criminal Justice Business Applications Unit, requires a Criminal History Record Information Requisition Form be filled out prior to fingerprinting.  Please review the text of the form below.


Connecticut General Statute (CGS) section 10-221d requires public and nonpublic schools to obtain fingerprint-based state and national criminal history record information (CHRI) on applicants and workers. CGS 10-221d also allows regional education service centers (RESCs) to serve as pass-through entities for fingerprint submission and receipt or dissemination of CHRI on behalf of a requesting school.
 
As a pass-through entity, RESCs are required to validate each request for CHRI. This form shall be used to ensure statewide compliance and must be maintained by the requesting school and RESC for at least one (1) year from the date of the request. This form must be submitted to all RESCs before fingerprints can be taken or CHRI can be released to a requesting school effective October 1, 2017. RESCs are prohibited from submitting fingerprints or disseminating CHRI to requesting schools that have not obtained approval from the Connecticut State Police. In addition to this form, requesting schools must provide the RESCs with the National Child Protection Act/Volunteers for Children Act (NCPA/VCA) or Volunteer and Employee Criminal History Services (VECHS) Waiver and Consent Form when fingerprinting applicants under the NCPA/VCA.
 
Requesting schools must ensure that 1.) It has been approved by the Connecticut State Police to receive CHRI; 2.) It has an application on file for each request and will maintain the application for at least one (1) year from the date of the request; and 3.) The applicant meets the state or federal statutory requirement to be fingerprinted. Refer to the Approved State or Federal Statutory Authority Form (below).
 
A RESC may require additional forms or information to process a request.
