Local Background Checks

The Police Department is frequently asked to conduct background checks for employment, adoption, licensing, and other purposes and provide what is typically referred to as a "clearance letter". We are able to conduct a local records check, consisting only of contacts (traffic & criminal) with Libertyville Police.

To submit a request, please stop by the Police Department and complete a request form, or submit your request using our on-line request form: Responses typically take up to 5 business days to prepare. There is no charge for this service.

Please note: Our local background check does not include a criminal history check or response; FBI response; or immigration clearance. To obtain this information, you must contact each respective agency.
