The Department of Public Safety may provide to a city or county from the State and
National Repositories of Criminal Histories the criminal history of any person who
applies for employment with the city or county. The city or county shall provide to the Department of Public Safety, along with
the request, the fingerprints of the applicant, a form signed by the applicant consenting
to the criminal record check and use of fingerprints and other identifying information
required by the State and National Repositories, and any additional information required
by the Department of Public Safety. The applicant's fingerprints shall be forwarded to the State Bureau of Investigation
for a search of the State's criminal history record file, and the State Bureau of
Investigation shall forward a set of fingerprints to the Federal Bureau of Investigation
for a national criminal history record check. The city or county shall keep all information obtained pursuant to this section
confidential. The Department of Public Safety may charge a fee to offset the cost incurred by
it to conduct a criminal record check under this section. The fee shall not exceed the actual cost of locating, editing, researching, and
retrieving the information.
