With temperatures soaring into the triple digits, the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department Records and Fingerprint Bureau is asking residents to use online services instead of in-person visits whenever possible.

Citizens are encouraged to schedule an appointment online ahead of time to apply for work cards, convicted offender registration services, and to file or receive a traffic or crime report. The appointment system is available by clicking on the following link: http://www.lvmpd.com/en-us/RecordsFingerprintBureau/Pages/default.aspx

Online services can be used for records requests, telephonic reporting or to apply for anew online CCW permit application. Citizens can also go to their local area command to file a police report and access other services as well.


Residents who are seeking services in person are being asked to prepare for a long wait in hot weather by wearing hats, sunscreen, bringing water, umbrellas and portable chairs. Anyone doing business at an LVMPD facility should have paperwork completed before services are requested.

Everyone is required to adhere to the following safety protocols:

•It will be mandatory that all visitors wear a mask. Visitors should bring their own masks.One can be provided, as long as supplies are available.
•Temperatures will be taken of all visitors. Anyone presenting with a fever or illness will be asked to return at a later date.
•Only citizens requiring services should be present. Visitors are advised to refrain from bringing family members or friends.
•Visitors are also asked to bring a cell phone, so they can wait safely outside until called.
•Those waiting outside will be required to exercise social distancing and stay at least six feet apart.
