Civilian Background Checks

WebCheck is an innovative program developed by the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Identification and Investigation (BCI&I) is significantly lessening the chances that child molesters and felons can harm school children and other vulnerable citizens of Ohio.

WebCheck is an Internet-based program for civilian background checks. This program reduces the return rate of civilian background checks to as little as several hours.
