It is important to understand that in our role as the Central Repository for Nebraska Criminal History Records, we only report information as it is provided to us by our criminal justice partners across the state. Think of us as a library. If you find incorrect information in a book, the library cannot correct the information. It is up to the publisher or the author to correct it. If you think there is an error in our information, you would need to contact the source of that information such as the court of record, county attorney or law enforcement agency. We will be happy to assist you in identifying the source of the information and provide you with contact information for that source. If they agree that the information is incorrect they will be able to provide us with the corrected information so that we can update our records.
