Request for Criminal Record Check
Child Abuse Clearance Forms
All volunteers with an ongoing assignment at the Lancaster Public Library must provide two clearances prior to engaging as a volunteer: The Pennsylvania State Police Criminal Record Check and the Pennsylvania Child Abuse History Clearance. These may be processed online and paid with a credit card.
For the Pennsylvania State Police Criminal Record Check visit epatch.state.pa.us/Home.jsp.
For the Pennsylvania Child Abuse History Clearance visit www.compass.state.pa.us/CWIS.
Print versions of these forms can be downloaded at the top of this page.
Contrary to instructions on the Child Abuse Clearance form, it is no longer necessary to attach a copy of the Criminal Record Check to the Child History clearance before submitting.
Each of these clearances costs $10. Filing online expedites the processing of the clearances.
