LAPD Officer Request

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.

Fingerprinting - Electronic or Paper

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.
