IIJIS Logo CRIMINAL HISTORY RECORD INFORMATION SYSTEM

Criminal History Record Information (CHRI) Overview

Pursuant to the Criminal Identification Act (20 ILCS 2630/2.1), the Illinois State Police (ISP) manages the central repository for criminal history record information (CHRI) in Illinois. CHRI currently consists of four types of criminal history data: arrest information, charge information, disposition and sentencing information, and custody information. The CHRI repository currently holds information on 3.7 million offenders and is the fifth largest criminal history repository in the nation.

How CHRI Works

State regulations require that police agencies submit arrest fingerprint cards to ISP within 24 hours of an arrest for all felony and Class A and B misdemeanor offenses. These contain not only the fingerprints of arrestees, but also arrestee demographic and arrest charge information. State regulations also require that state's attorneys report charging decisions and that circuit court clerk's report court dispositions within 30 days. The Illinois Department of Corrections and county sheriff's are also required to submit custodial receipt fingerprints and status change reports within 30 days of the custodial event. A unique State Identification (SID) number is used to differentiate all persons with a criminal history record.

Other submissions to CHRI include:

  • the Death Notice Fingerprint Card, which is used to report the death of an individual with a possible criminal record or to identify an unknown deceased person;
  • the Stop Order Fingerprint Card, which is used to request notification of contact with a particular person by another police agency;
  • the Fee Applicant Fingerprint Card, which is used to inquire on the criminal history background of prospective employees or licensees as authorized by Illinois law; and
  • the Criminal Justice Applicant Card, which is used to inquire on the criminal history background of prospective criminal justice employees.

Currently, 67.4% of all the fingerprints collected by ISP are submitted through the use of electronic "Live-Scan" fingerprint devices; the rest are mailed. ISP currently provides a fingerprint verified identification of the arrestee or inmate within two hours for 99.7% of all Live-Scan fingerprint submissions.

There are currently 67 Illinois counties participating in the Administrative Office of the Illinois Courts (AOIC) Automated Disposition Reporting (ADR) program, in which data tapes are sent first to AOIC and then to ISP. In addition, Cook County reports daily in batch mode (but not through the ADR program), two counties report online, and 32 counties continue to report manually to CHRI. A recent audit (FY99), conducted by the Illinois Criminal Justice Information Authority, revealed that 51.7% of all reportable court dispositions were not posted to CHRI. In order to improve the accuracy of their data, the ISP has established a goal of posting 95% of all court dispositions. There are a number of data quality initiatives underway to reach this goal, including a disposition acquisition plan and the Cook County Felony Disposition Project.

Paper and electronic criminal history information can be obtained from ISP by criminal justice agencies through the use of the Law Enforcement Agencies Data System (LEADS), by faxing a request to the ISP Bureau of Identification, or through the use of the Non-Fingerprint Card Inquiry Form. Any individual or agency can use the Conviction Information Request Form or the Conviction Information Request Fingerprint Card to obtain conviction information about a person for any purpose. As mandated by statute, only conviction information is available to the general public. Schools in Illinois can use the Criminal History Background Investigation Request for School Employment to determine if perspective employees have a criminal history.

Future enhancements to CHRI will include e-AFIS, a statewide single fingerprint identification system; continuing the deployment of the Electronic Criminal History Operations system (ECHO), which provides on-line access to CHRI data; the development of software for the Correctional Institution Management Information System (CIMIS) to facilitate the transfer of jail data; and participation in the Interstate Rap Sheet XML initiative.

Participants

All police agencies, sheriffs (as custodians of the county jail), state's attorneys, circuit court clerks, and the Illinois Department of Corrections participate in the program. Approximately 800 criminal justice agencies with over 20,000 computer workstations have access to CHRI data through the LEADS Computerized Criminal History (CCH) inquiry function. The security of LEADS access to CHRI is governed by LEADS Policy Board regulations, written interagency agreements between LEADS users and the ISP, and audits by ISP personnel.

IIJIS Informational Brochure

Information is the backbone of every aspect of the public safety process. Justice cannot be fairly and properly administered without complete and accurate information.

In today's public safety processes, many inadequacies exist in the collection, storage, and dissemination of information needed to make justice administration decisions, deploy resources, improve operational effectiveness and most importantly, protect citizens.
