The Illinois State Uniform Conviction Information Act (UCIA) live scan fingerprint background check provides an opportunity for individuals or employers to obtain a person's criminal history from the State of Illinois. Results of this check are mailed directly to the requesting agency or individual by the Illinois State Police.

The background check contains all conviction data collected by the Illinois State Police. An individual may grant permission to send the response to another individual or entity—such as an employee—by listing the other party as the "requestor".

Some reasons for an Illinois UCIA Background Check Request:

2] Visit our store at 210 S Clark St (Adams & Clark) in downtown Chicago. Bring the completed UCIA form, a valid government-issued photo ID (such as a driver's license, State ID or passport). (If you are out of state, please click here.)

3] Our cost is $40. Please bring cash, credit card or debit card.

4] A receipt will be provided after fingerprinting that includes the name, date and Transaction Control Number (TCN). The TCN is a tracking number. Please retain the receipt that includes your TCN number in case there are any follow up questions.

5] The results will be mailed out in a large white envelope from the Illinois State Police to the requestor. Results will be received within 7 working days, based on the results of your background check.


Note: the UCIA check only returns Illinois conviction information. For complete record information, an individual can request an Illinois Access and Review check.
