Welcome to the State Bureau of Identification (SBI)

Each state has a central repository that collects and maintains criminal history information, releases that information to the criminal justice community, and cooperates with the Federal Bureau of Investigation. In Maine, the repository is run by the State Bureau of Identification, which is a bureau of the Maine State Police.

SBI not only serves law enforcement agencies, courts, and prison systems in Maine, but is also a vital resource for lawyers, licensing agencies, employers, and the general public. On this site, you will find some useful information about SBI's programs, as well as links to helpful services offered by the Bureau.
