Q: Where is Records located and what are your hours?
A: We are located at the LVMPD Headquarters Complex, 400 S. Martin Luther King Blvd., Building C. We are open to the public from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday-Friday including most holidays (we are closed on Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day) and 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
Q: How much does it cost to get copies of reports or arrest records?
A: We charge $9.00 for a copy of a crime report and $9.00 for an arrest record, also known as a background check.
Q: Can I get a copy of someone else's arrest records?
A: Only the subject of the arrest record may get copies of their record, unless they authorize someone else specifically to obtain the records. Authorization must be written and notarized and the person authorized must have picture identification.
Q: Can I find out if I'm wanted?
A: The best way to find this information is to contact the courts directly. Because we cannot verify identity over the telephone, we can't release the information if you call. If you come to Records in person, we are required to notify an officer, and you may be arrested.
Q: How can I find out more about my case?
A: The detective handling your case is the best source of information. Call the Financial and Property Crimes Bureau or the Crimes Against Persons Bureau and let them know you would like to speak to the Detective handling your case. If you have the event number, let them know you have the number because it's easier to look up your case with the number.
Q: Where else can I file a report other than Records?
A: You can file a report at any of the area commands (except Downtown, Bolden, Southeast and South Central Area Commands) Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., excluding holidays. Area commands take their last report of the day at 4 p.m. Gun registrations will be taken until 5 p.m. Depending on the type of report you need to file, you may also be able to make the report over the phone. When you call our non-emergency number (311), you can tell the call taker you would like to file the report over the phone and they can assist you.
