Since 1993, the Ohio General Assembly has passed numerous state laws requiring background checks for certain occupations including individuals who work with children, those who work with the elderly, certain licensed professionals and persons working in the financial industry. Using WebCheck, agencies can electronically capture and transfer complete, accurate information including fingerprint images and textual data, and results are generally available within two business days or less.
The Coshocton County Sheriff’s Office processes WebCheck requests by mail-to transactions, where the requesting agency or individual receives the results of the background check directly. If no criminal history match is found, the employing agency will receive the results of their background check requests within two business days. If there is a criminal history match, the program will indicate that the results will be mailed. Mailed results will be received by the agency in seven to 10 business days. No criminal history information is sent via the Internet.
For more information concerning WebCheck please visit the Ohio Attorney General’s web site athttp://www.ag.state.oh.us.
