The Alaska Background Check Program (BCP) is responsible for providing centralized background check support for programs that provide for the safety and health of persons who are served by the programs administered by the Department of Health and Social Services (DH&SS). Programs subject to the licensing and certification authority of DH&SS or are eligible to receive payments, in whole or in part, from the department are subject to the statutory requirements of: AS 47.05.300-47.05.390; Background Check Regulations: 7 AAC 10.900 - 7 AAC 10.990
Alaska Statute (AS) 12.62.160 states that "Any Person" is authorized to receive Alaska criminal justice information. Alaska Administrative Code (AAC) goes on to define procedures to obtain this information. AS 12.62.160 also authorizes the dissemination of additional information to employers/licensing agencies for screening of applicants for positions responsible for the care of children and dependent adults (an "Interested Person"). The subject of a record is authorized to view or purchase a copy of his/her entire record. The Department of Public Safety, Criminal Records and Identification (R&I) Bureau maintains Alaska Criminal Justice Information.
