Police Records

*** The Records Unit will be closed August 8-12.  Only previously scheduled LiveScan appointments will be honored.  Normal Records operations will resume August 15.  We apologize for any inconvenience.***

We manage the daily influx of police reports and paperwork generated by patrol officers, cadets and police dispatchers. This includes some 3,000 reports; 1,500 citations; 2,500 fingerprints and more than 800 arrest jackets annually. We also coordinate with the Investigations Unit and Administrative Services Sergeant to gather employee background records, as appropriate.

Automated Records Management System

Reports filed with UPD become part of the automated records management system (RMS). Every business day, we send reports to the District Attorney's Office for review. Statistics from RMS are sent to the Department of Justice, FBI and the Chancellor's Office for inclusion in the state and federal crime statistics and the Student Right to Know (Clery Act) statistics.


We operate the online LiveScan inkless electronic fingerprinting system. LiveScan fingerprints are electronically transmitted to the Department of Justice (DOJ) for completion of a criminal record check. To make an appointment for LiveScan fingerprinting, contact us at 408-924-2172. There is a cost associated with this service. For more information, see LiveScan Fingerprinting Policy & Request Form. There are NO WALK-INS admitted, by appointment only.
