Answer: The Criminal History Records Section of the Arizona Department of Public Safety serves as the Central State Repository for criminal records in the State of Arizona (see Arizona Revised Statute §41-1750). The subject of a criminal record may review the information contained in the record for the SOLE PURPOSE OF REVIEWING THE ACCURACY AND COMPLETENESS OF THEIR RECORD.
To Review the record the subject may:
Request a Record Review Packet by contacting the Criminal History Records Section at (602) 223-2222.
The Record Review Packet contains the following items:
Instructions
Blank Applicant fingerprint card
Contact Information Sheet
Pre-addressed return envelope

Additionally, the Arizona Judicial Branch is pleased to offer online access to Superior Court criminal case minute entries in participating superior courts. Please note, only Superior Court criminal case minute entries entries recorded in the court's document management system on or after January 1, 2010 will be available.
