The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation is the state repository for all criminal history information. Information from the OSBI's repository is available to the public.
The Oklahoma Open Records Act was established to ensure and facilitate the public's right of access to and review of government records. The privacy interests of individuals are adequately protected in the specific exceptions to the Oklahoma Open Records Act or in the Statutes, which create or require the records. Pursuant to the Oklahoma Open Records Act, Title 51 § 24.A.5.2, all requests for criminal history record information must include at least the full name and date of birth of the subject to be searched. Additional identifiers such as aliases (i.e. maiden names, nicknames) and social security numbers, if known, should be provided resulting in a more complete search of the OSBI Criminal History Record files.
