Minnesota Public Criminal History Search

This website is a free service offered by the Minnesota Department of Public Safety (DPS) and the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension (BCA). Public criminal history record search is required by Minnesota Statutes §13.87, Subd. 1(c). The Methamphetamine Offender Registry (MOR) search is required by Executive Orders 06-09 and 11-08.

The Adult-Use Cannabis Act requires automatic expungement of certain cannabis-related records from the BCA’s Criminal History System (CHS).

Eligible felony convictions will be reviewed by a Cannabis Expungement Board to determine whether the records meet the criteria identified in statute for expungement or resentencing.

While the BCA is working to make the necessary technical and programmatic changes, a notice about this pending update is posted on all records in CHS.

The Adult-Use Cannabis Act goes into effect on Aug. 1, 2023. However, affected records will remain available on criminal history records until technical and programmatic changes can be implemented. This will likely occur closer to August 2024.
