Hours of Operation

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


Fingerprinting times can be found in the Department Hours of Operation. 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 the following:

  • Official fingerprint cards from the agency/organization requesting your prints.
  • $5.00 cash per card.
  • Valid Photo Identification.

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

The Records Division also does electronic fingerprinting through the Gemalto Cogent Applicant system on Monday through Friday. Please bring the following with you:

  • Registration number/receipt.
  • Valid Photo Identification.
