The Utah County Sheriff’s Office conducts complete and thorough background investigations on all new applicants, both sworn and non-sworn as part of the hiring process. This helps ensure that the individuals being hired by the Utah County Sheriff’s Office are of the highest quality and possess the necessary skills and abilities to effectively assist the citizens of Utah County. The Utah County Sheriff’s Office is unable to conduct criminal background investigations for private individuals at their request. Citizens in need of this type of criminal background investigation are encouraged to contact the Utah State Bureau of Criminal Identification (BCI) for assistance.

This service is provided free of charge and is available by request through the Utah County Sheriff’s Office Records Division.
