Criminal History Checks
The Records Bureau will conduct local criminal history checks for a fee of $10. The fee must be paid before the check is conducted. Only arrest information is given out and the information provided is limited to the information maintained by the Fargo Police Department Records Bureau. If you want a person's complete criminal history, you must contact the North Dakota Bureau of Criminal Investigation.
