Expungement of Criminal History Record Information is a process initiated by an individual, or through his or her attorney, resulting in a court order for expungement. Law Enforcement agencies do not initiate this process.

Expungements, contrary to popular belief, do not make a criminal history record "go away". Generally, law enforcement agencies are obligated by statute to maintain expunged records, and will furnish expunged Criminal History Record information in accordance with state statute when applicable. (K.S.A. 21-3110a, K.S.A. 22-2410, K.S.A. 12-4516, and K.S.A. 38-2312)
