How To Request Your GCIC (Georgia Crime Information Center)
You can request a copy of your GCIC criminal history from most law enforcement agencies in the state of Georgia. In order to best review your criminal history, Georgia Justice Project (GJP) recommends obtaining your Purpose Code U report. A Purpose Code U report shows arrests that have been restricted (expunged), time-expired restricted, or discharged under the First
Offender Act. This is your complete Georgia criminal history record – similar to what law
enforcement can see. This complete report will allow GJP’s attorneys and paralegal to fully
assess your criminal history.
Obtain Criminal History From:
Floyd County Police Department
5 Government Plaza # 200
Rome, GA 30161
(First Floor of Law Enforcement Center, across 5th Ave. from the Courthouse)
Cost: $15 (Can order Purpose Code U)
Floyd County Sheriff’s Office
Floyd County Jail
2526 New Calhoun Hwy NE
Rome, GA 30161

A Purpose Code U report is preferable, but if you are unable to obtain, a Purpose Code E is
sufficient. This report is the version potential employers, housing providers or other decision-makers can request with your consent. It will NOT show arrests that have been restricted, time-expired restricted, or discharged under the First Offender Act.
