Policies for Criminal History Search Requests

The Office of the Clerk of the Superior Court and State Court of Wayne County does not conduct “criminal history searches” of misdemeanor or felony files.

Parties or agencies wanting or requiring a criminal history search on any individual should follow the procedures detailed in the Services menu on the Georgia Bureau of Investigation’s web site at for obtaining criminal history data from local law enforcement agencies and/or the Georgia Crime Information Center.  The 911 center located at 155 North Wayne Street requires a picture ID and a payment of $20.00 for any individual requesting a criminal background check.

Copies of specific criminal dispositions may be obtained from this Office upon request and upon payment of costs required by statute (which is $.50 per page, plus $2.50 for certification).
