A clearance letter indicates that upon a name and date of birth check, you have No Criminal Record with the Stanislaus County Sheriff's Department. This is a local check only and is NOT based on fingerprint comparison.
In order to obtain a criminal clearance letter you will need to appear in person with a valid form of identification. (See examples.)
The Sheriff's Department Records Division is open Monday through Thursday, 8:00am to 3:00pm.
If you have a criminal arrest record, you will need to apply for an arrest record letter and not a records clearance letter.
