Obtaining Arrest Summaries
 
Los Angeles Police Department
If you have been arrested by the LAPD, you may obtain a summary of your LAPD arrests.  The summary will list the dates, charges, and dispositions (if they are on file) for LAPD arrests only.  The summary will not include arrests made by any other law enforcement agency.  You may elect to pick up your arrest summary or have it mailed.  Arrest summary processing time varies, as it is dependent on the number of requests received.

To apply in person, go to the Police Administration Building, 100 West 1st Street, Room P1-137, between 8:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m., Monday through Thursday excluding holidays.  The fee for the summary is $68.00 payable by check, money order, or currency.

To request an arrest summary by mail, please provide:
  1. A full set of fingerprints on a standard finger print card completed by a local Police or Sheriff's agency, (or an authorized fingerprinting services in Los Angeles), containing all personal data, mailing address, zip code and telephone number.
  2. A letter to LAPD requesting an arrest summary.
  3. A Check or money order made payable to LAPD in the amount of $68.00.  Do not send cash.
Mail to:
LAPD R&I Division
ATTN:  Watch Commander
P.O. Box 30158
Los Angeles, CA  90030

Or

Express Mail to:
LAPD R&I Division
100 West 1st Street, Room P1-137
Los Angeles, CA  90012

If you have been arrested for a misdemeanor charge of Driving Under the Influence (DUI) and want information regarding that arrest, you should visit the Los Angeles County Superior Court. Felony DUI Records are retained at R&I Division.

State Department of Justice

If you have been arrested by more than one law enforcement agency, it is recommended that you request your criminal history records from the California Department of Justice (DOJ) instead of requesting arrest summaries from multiple localities.  For recorded DOJ arrest summary information, call 916-227-3822.

Federal Bureau of Investigation

You may also request a criminal history record for the purpose of immigration, emigration, and visas from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).  The FBI furnishes national criminal history records directly to the embassy or consulate that is processing the applicant.  For further information regarding FBI’s criminal history records, call (304) 625-3878.
