Criminal History Check for Volunteers

- The volunteer will complete the online Application for a Volunteer Background Screen.
- The cost of the initial screening is $12.95 per person and includes all counties of residence within Indiana.
- Additional counties of residence outside of Indiana will required a flat access fee of $5.95 plus any access fees imposed by the courts in those states/counties. The responsibility for these additional costs will be born by the volunteer applicant.
