Highland County Sheriff’s Office
Implements The Use of WebCheck
Fingerprint Background Checks
WebCheck is an Internet-based program for civilian
background checks. WebCheck uses the Internet to
electronically transfer fingerprints and other data from inquiring
agencies to the Ohio Bureau of Identification and Investigation
(BCI&I). The person requesting a background check
can have the results mailed to the agency requiring the background
check. Normally within two business days, the school or
daycare center will receive the results of the background check
requested. At no time are the results of the criminal history
background check sent over the Internet.
The Highland County Sheriff's Office also offers
National WebCheck, which additionally processes the fingerprints
against the criminal history database of the Federal Bureau of
Monday-Friday 8:30AM-4:00 P.M.
NOTE-The Saturday hours are delayed until further notice.
Cost: BCI&I only
$30.00 FBI only
$30.00 Both: $60.00
Payment is required at time of background check
and may be made by cash, check, or money order.
**For any large groups or a person who needs
the background check immediately and cannot come during our normal
hours, please call our Civil Division to see about
making arrangements at other times for the background check.
