Once enrolled in Rapback, an employee's fingerprints are automatically compared against incoming arrest and disposition information. Comparisons are initiated in real-time as new arrests and judicial information become available.
1. If there is a match between an enrollee and an event (an arrest or judicial information), also known as a "hit," an email notification is sent to all email addresses on file. The subject line of the email states "Rapback Activity." There will not be any information in the email about which enrollee had a match.
2. Log in to Rapback and go to the "Affirm/Disaffirm Enrollment" page.
3. Affirm or Disaffirm the Rap Sheet.
4. Go to the "Entitled Rap Sheet" Page to view the Affirmed Rap Sheet. Affirmed Rap Sheets can be viewed for 60 days from the date of the notification.
