The Ottawa County Sheriffs Office offers the WebCheck® service. WebCheck® is an Internet-based program for conducting fingerprint-based civilian background checks. The Sheriffs Office is the only agency in Ottawa County that offers both BCI and FBI record checks. These checks are required for teaching and school personnel, persons involved in the care and custody of children, those working with the elderly and other professions.
The Sheriffs Office offers WebCheck® during normal business hours, Monday – Friday, 8:00AM to 4:30PM ‘By Appointment Only’. All WebCheck® services are ‘By Appointment Only’. Due to the increase in requests we are usually booked 2-3 days in advance.
Please be certain to bring your Drivers License or State ID card with you!
Payment for WebCheck® services are as follows:
BCI Check: $30.00
FBI Check: $40.00
BCI/FBI combination: $70.00
Payment may be made only by CASH or MONEY ORDER (made payable to the Ottawa County Sheriffs Office) unless your employer has made other arrangements. We do not accept personal checks or credit cards.
NOTE: For teachers and school personnel: Please inform us if your background check is for your teaching certificate. If so the results can be automatically electronically submitted to the Ohio Department of Education. In addition a certificate can still be mailed to an address of your choice.
To schedule a WebCheck® appointment please contact: Deputy Rhonda St.Clair at 419-734-6823
