How do I obtain a Criminal History Background check?

The Records Division will perform local criminal record checks for residents of the Town of Newtown. This is a check for a history in the Town of Newtown only, by name and date of birth.  You can download the form below titled Criminal History Record Request.

If you need a Statewide check, you must contact the Connecticut State Police Bureau of Identification.  A request form for the State criminal records check can be obtained from the Department of Public Safety Website.
