​Pennsylvania State Police – Non-Criminal Justice Agency Audits

​The Pennsylvania State Police manages and audits all agencies, both Criminal Justice and Non-Criminal Justice, that submit fingerprints for background checks and/or receive the responses from those submissions. To have access to the fingerprinting system, each agency is required to provide a current point of contact. Each agency is also required to participate in an audit at least triennially. Each agency is required to communicate with the Pennsylvania State Police for information exchange and auditing purposes. This is required to ensure safekeeping of records, and protected personal information disclosed by the state and federal repositories. Agencies will receive audit notification by email from the Non-Criminal Justice Auditor, Trooper Garrett Padasak. Due to the volume of agencies statewide, it is important each agency responds promptly to these communications.
