Records staff process officer reports such as incident, arrests, field interviews, court dispositions, accidents, warrants and other miscellaneous reports. Both paper and electronic records are kept of officer reports. There are other items you can request through LAPD Records: 

  • Request a report
  • Background check
  • Copies of citations

Hours of Operation

The Records Division is open five days per week from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. MST.

Fingerprints Times 

LAPD detention staff does fingerprinting on paper for those persons requesting them for employment or other purposes. Most people have two sets of prints taken. Make sure you bring:

  • Official fingerprint cards from the agency/organization requesting your prints. We cannot use LAPD cards for this purpose, because the cards will come back to the Department, rather than to the agency/organization requesting your prints.
  • $5.00 cash per card, or a check from your employer/organization payable to Los Alamos County.

The Records or the Detention staff will issue you a cash receipt for your fingerprints. If the prints are illegible for any reason, LAPD will re-do the fingerprints provided you have your receipt.

  • Wednesdays from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m.
  • Fridays from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m.
  • Saturdays from 9:00 to 11:00 a.m.

There is no need to schedule a visit during these times. However, we understand that these hours may not work for everyone's schedule. Therefore, anyone that cannot attend one of the above listed time can call the Detention Control Room at 505-662-8235 to schedule a fingerprinting session.

The Records Division also does electronic fingerprinting through the 3M Cogent Applicant system on Monday through Friday, from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Please note that the electronic system is currently. We will post an update when it is operational. (Revised June 27, 2017)

House Check Requests 

LAPD offers a house check service for people who live in single dwellings and plan to be absent from their homes. Service is provided for a time period not to exceed two weeks. This service is not offered to residents of apartments, condominiums, duplexes or quad-plexes.

  • Please contact LAPD Dispatch to fill out the house check request form and personally bring it to the LAPD Dispatch window.
  • There is no fee for this service.

Note that when a resident returns home, he/she must come to LAPD in person to cancel the house check; phone calls are not accepted for house check cancellations.

Requests for Off-Duty Police Officers

Citizens and community organizations often request a police presence for special events such as middle and high school dances, high school football or basketball games, veterans parades, fund-raising marathons, etc.

  • Please complete the Request for Off-Duty Police Officer and bring it to the LAPD Records window.
  • Be sure to include all billing information on your request. LAPD will bill you for the officer’s time.
  • The fee for this service is $60.00/hour/officer, with a two-hour minimum charge per officer. 

LAPD strongly recommends that you/your organization give the Department as much advance notice as possible. For requests with less than two (2) weeks notice, there is the possibility of denial of the request.
