Do you need a Collision Report?

Do you need an Arrest History or Clearance Letter?

Letters documenting an individual's arrest history with the Tucson Police Department are available to that person or a representative. Requests for this service must be made by mail.

  1. Supply a copy of a government-issued picture ID or birth certificate with the request.  The requester’s signature must be notarized.
  2. Include your full name, any former/maiden names, and your date of birth on the request.
  3. Indicate whether you need the letter notarized.

The charge is $5.00 for three copies of the letter.

Please Note:
Due to high volume, we are unable to process arrest history and clearance letter requests immediately. Every effort will be made to complete requests within fifteen business days of receiving a written request. Thank you for your patience.
