WebCheck is an Internet-based program for civilian background checks. Since 1993, the Ohio General Assembly has passed several state laws requiring background checks for certain occupations including individuals who work with children, the elderly and the disabled.
WebCheck uses the internet to electronically transfer complete and accurate fingerprints and textual data to BCI&I, with the results being mailed to the requesting agency or individual. Fingerprint images and personal data is sent via the Internet using a single digit fingerprint scanner and a driver’s license magnetic strip reader. Data transferred over the Internet is encrypted both at the agency site and at BCI&I, and the program is password protected.
The Muskingum 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. No criminal history information is relayed over the Internet or received by the Muskingum County Sheriff’s Office.
The requesting agency should specify which check(s) are needed. You should verify this information with them prior to coming to the Sheriff’s Office. If you have any questions regarding the checks please contact our Records Bureau.
