Personal Records Check / Police Clearance / Letter of Good Conduct

Police Records staff can provide a local records check, which provides a list of an individual’s contacts with the Eugene Police Department only. It does not show the court disposition of the reports or contacts with any other agency. The request form is available in the Police Records lobby. There is a fee for this service (see current fee schedule). The following are some important facts regarding the records check process:

  • Any individual’s statewide criminal history may be obtained from the Oregon State Police at 503-378-3073 or 541-726-2536.
  • It is possible to designate another person to obtain your records check . The designee must provide a notarized request, a legible copy of the requesting individual’s identification, and their own government issued identification.
  • Notarized records checks are available when a notary public is on shift. Please call 541-682-5115 if a notarized records check is required. Additional fee applies. See fee schedule.
  • Personal Records checks are provided on a standard form. We do not provide an individualized police clearance or letter of good conduct. It is the burden of the person requesting the records check to ensure what we provide is sufficient for their purposes.
  • Personal Records information is only provided for the requesting individual. Government issued identification must be provided.
  • Records checks are generally used for employment, travel visas, and rental applications.
