Letter of Clearance / Review of Criminal History

Requests for a Letter of Clearance can be dropped off at Phoenix Police Public Records during normal business hours between 8:00AM - 4:00PM or mailed to the Phoenix Police Public Records at 1717 E. Grant Street, Phoenix, AZ 85034. The letter will provide a local search of Phoenix Police Department arrest/criminal records only. A search of the records or any other jurisdictions (local, state, or federal) is not conducted or implied. Pursuant to Arizona's Public Records Law (A.R.S. 39-121) Public Records employees cannot provide you with information on another person's arrest record. You may only obtain a Letter of Clearance on yourself.

Requirements to obtain a Letter of Clearance include:

  • A completed Letter of Clearance Information sheet that you can download HERE
  • Full set of fingerprints that are endorsed by the company conducting the fingerprint service
  • Valid (non-expired) Government issued photo ID (Original will need to be provided)
  • Payment of $28.00 (with record) or $8.50 (no record found)

In order to better serve our customers, Letters of Clearance (LOC) will be accepted in our Public Lobby via drop off or mail in only. We will no longer be accepting appointments for LOC requests. LOC's must be dropped off by the requestor, processed by our clerks, and the requestor will be contacted once it is completed. This allows the requestor time to gather the information and documents necessary to obtain a LOC and forgo an extended wait time in our public lobby. Please refer to the information below before dropping off your LOC request.

Letters of Clearance will not be accepted or processed for persons under the age of 14.

If you have questions about a Letter of Clearance or need further assistance, please call 602-534-1127 to speak with a representative.
