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 (Background Check Form).

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.
