What is CHIRP?

The OSBI's Criminal History Information Request Portal (CHIRP) is an online system that allows you to request a name-based criminal history record check electronically - from anywhere.


With a few clicks you can get peace of mind about the people you, your family, friends or employees interact with including:

  • A new employee
  • Son or daughter's significant other
  • Babysitter / Eldercare
  • Potential roommate
  • Pet or house sitter
  • Personal relationship
  • Yourself

No need to spend gas $$, pay for postage, or find a fax machine.  Request a criminal history background check from the privacy of your home or office, or even from your phone! 

All you'll need is a computer, tablet or phone with an internet connection!
