TAPS Registration

Due to an update in TCA 40-11-318, any resident of Tennessee who is a United States citizen and who intends to perform the functions of a bounty hunter must submit to a criminal history background check at the sheriff’s office at the county of the person’s permanent residence.

If for some reason the wrong ORI number is used when entering and scheduling a Bounty Hunter, TBI will no longer forward those results to the agency and the Bounty Hunter will be responsible for rescheduling again which will cause a delay in the DCSO receiving the results. Please make sure ORI Number TN920762Z is used at all times.

The outlined steps, along with screenshots, are in the PDF document below:
