7. What if I was arrested, but the charge(s) or the outcome/final disposition on my criminal history is incorrect?

If you were arrested but believe the specific charge is incorrect on your official criminal history record, you must verify the information with the arresting agency. Contact the agency that arrested you and request a copy of the police report. If the charge(s) listed on the police report does not match the charge(s) listed on your criminal history, ask the arresting agency to correct your GCIC criminal history record.

If you believe the outcome/final disposition of the case is incorrectly reported, you must verify the information by reviewing the final disposition. Go to the office of the clerk of court and get a copy of the final disposition. If that final disposition does not match the final disposition on your criminal history, request that the clerk of court correct your GCIC criminal history record.
