How Do I Get Bastrop County Criminal Records?

The Texas state DPS is tasked with managing the central system for criminal history checks and criminal records. Individuals interested in requesting their own criminal history record information (CHRI) may do so through the personal review system. To use the personal review system, a requester is required to first schedule a fingerprint scan at a DPS Fingerprint Applicant Services of Texas (FAST) online or by calling (888) 467-2080. The fingerprint scan fee is $10, while CHRI costs $15. Photo identification and fee payment will be required at the fingerprint appointment. The DPS uses scanned fingerprints to check CHRI. To check CHRI, a requester should submit the fingerprint hard card to the fingerprint vendor. This card should be submitted with the following information:

  • Requester’s name(s)
  • Sex
  • Race
  • Date of Birth

The CHRI results will be sent to the designated recipient provided by the requester. For more inquiries, call (512) 424-5079.

Third parties may request criminal history records of other individuals by using the Criminal History Search website. Offenders with Class B misdemeanors, Class C convictions, or higher can be searched on this website. To carry out a search, new users have to create an account and purchase credits for every search.
