Background Checks

The Tompkins County Sheriff's Office provides background checks for our agency. This means any other agency records will not be part of our standard background check. Background checks are $10.00 a piece, in cash, and processed on site; no appointment is necessary.

Open Folder

We require a valid ID and a list of names that you go by or would have gone by in the past. Please check with the organization or business that is requiring a background check before coming in; occasionally they will require a more extensive background check.
