JEFFERSON CITY — A new Missouri State Highway Patrol website will allow the public to obtain instant open record criminal background checks for a $10 fee.

Previously record check requests had to be submitted by mail to the Highway Patrol and could take two to four weeks to be completed.

The site is called the Missouri Automated Criminal History Site and a link also can be found at the Highway Patrol's website.

Anyone wanting to request open records must first create a user account. The Highway Patrol says the vast majority of requests can be completed and sent to users within seconds.

Missouri residents who don't have Internet access can continue to request record checks through the mail.
