  • Current: Child Protective Index Checks/Child Protection Service History Checks/CANS/Adam Walsh Checks/Out of State Child Welfare Agency

On Monday, June 4, 2018, the Indiana Department of Child Services moved to an online portal for all submissions to the Central Office Background Check Unit for:

  • Indiana Child Protective Service (CPS) history checks
  • Expanded Child Protective Index (CPI) history checks, as well as
  • Out of State Child Welfare Agency requests regarding information to assist with that state’s ongoing investigation/assessment. For additional information click here.

For Existing Vendors and Organizations, access the “CPI/CPS Portal” by signing in to the DCS MaGIK Gateway.

Existing DCS Vendors using the “KidTraks Vendor Portal” should login through the DCS MaGIK Gateway to access the "CPI/CPS Portal" menu from their main dashboard page.

Registration for Non-KidTraks Vendors or Newly Formed Organizations should complete a one-time registration process to become an Organization through the CPI/CPS Portal Registration page.

Individual Requests may initiate a DCS CPI/CPS Check request to obtain data related to themselves.  To create a request go to “Self – CPI/CPS Check.”

Note: “Self- CPI/CPS Checks” are allowed no more than every 6 months per person. Self-Checks do not meet the legal requirements to be used by an Organization or Third Party for volunteers or employment.
