inal history record, the officials making a determination of your suitability for the job, license or other benefit for which you are
applying must provide you the opportunity to complete or challenge the accuracy of the information in the record. You may review and challenge the
accuracy of any and all criminal history records which are returned to the submitting agency. The proper forms and procedures will be furnished to
you by the Nevada Department of Public Safety, Records Bureau upon request. If you decide to challenge the accuracy or completeness of you FBI
criminal history record, Title 28 of the Code of Federal Regulations Section 16.34 provides for the proper procedure to do so:
16.34 - Procedure to obtain change, correction or updating of identification records.

changes, corrections or updating of the alleged deficiency, he/she should make application directly to the agency which contributed the
questioned information. The subject of a record may also direct his/her challenge as to the accuracy or completeness of any entry on his/her
record to the FBI, Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS) Division ATTN: SCU, Mod. D-2, 1000 Custer Hollow Road, Clarksburg, WV

challenged entry. Upon the receipt of an official communication directly from the agency which contributed the original information, the FBI
CJIS Division will make any changes necessary in accordance with the information supplied by that agency.
3. Based on 28 CFR § 50.12 (b), officials making such determinations should not deny the license or employment based on information in the record
until the applicant has been afforded a reasonable time to correct or complete the record or has declined to do so.

ight to expect that officials receiving the results of the fingerprint-based criminal history record check will use it only for authorized
