If you have a criminal record, it is visible to the public through a basic docket search using your first and last name. If your criminal record is wiped clean through the expungement process, it will not appear on public dockets.
But district attorneys and the Pennsylvania State Police Central Repository will still have access to your record. Other law enforcement agencies and courts may obtain access to your record by request. They retain access to your record for the following purposes:
- To identify people in criminal investigations;
- To determine the grading of future criminal offenses; and
- To determine eligibility for diversionary programs.
Erasing your criminal record may open new opportunities for employment.
