A rap sheet (Identity History Summary report) is a criminal record on file with the FBI,based on fingerprint submissions received and retained by the FBI. An FBI rap sheet may also contain disposition data which is not fingerprint­ based, if reported to the FBI and the FBI maintains the associated arrest record(s) supported by fingerprints.

The rap sheet one receives from the FBI may include information reported to the FBI from any source including local, state and federal agencies who submit fingerprint-based transactions to the FBI for retention.

The rap sheet is only a snapshot in time, containing retained information at the time of a “Departmental Order” fingerprint-based inquiry. A rap sheet will include reported arrests, dispositions and correctional transactions supported by fingerprints. The FBI rap sheet may also contain “wanted” or “warrant” information reported from other law enforcement entities, when reported.

  • A minor or old criminal matter that the job seeker thought was judicially set aside or was too old to matter still pops up.
