Requests may also be made in person at the Records Division office.

The procedure for Mailing a request is as follows:

  • The fee for each record check requested must accompany each request unless an account has been set-up with the Records Division Manager.
  • Checks should be made out to Douglas County Sheriff's Office.
  • The completed background check information may only be picked up or returned by mail; results are not sent electronically.
