Obtaining a Police Clearance

  • A local police clearance indicating your conduct in the City of Ypsilanti may be requested for local or international purposes. If you have relocated to a different State, you may request a certificate through the mail; otherwise, you may visit the Records Bureau to request a clearance.
  • If you're obtaining local police clearance for an adoption, it could take up to five business days. The criminal history checks are prepared in "certificate" form, and the fee is $25.
