LAS VEGAS, NV (KXNT) - With temperatures soaring into the triple digits, the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department Records and Fingerprint Bureau is asking residents to use online services instead of in-person visits whenever possible.

Citizens are encouraged to schedule an appointment online ahead of time to apply for work cards, convicted offender registration services, and to file or receive a traffic or crime report. The appointment system is available by clicking on the following link:

Online services can be used for records requests, telephonic reporting or to apply for a new online CCW permit application. Citizens can also go to their local area command to file a police report and access other services as well.

Everyone is required to adhere to the following safety protocols:

 - It will be mandatory that all visitors wear a mask. Visitors should bring their own masks. One can be provided, as long as supplies are available.

 - Temperatures will be taken of all visitors. Anyone presenting with a fever or illness will be asked to return at a later date.

 - Only citizens requiring services should be present. Visitors are advised to refrain from bringing family members or friends.

 - Visitors are also asked to bring a cell phone, so they can wait safely outside until called.

 - Those waiting outside will be required to exercise social distancing and stay at least six fee apart.

Residents who are seeking services in person are being asked to prepare for a long wait in hot weather by wearing hats, sunscreen, bringing water, umbrellas and portable chairs. Anyone doing business at an LVMPD facility should have paperwork completed before services are requested.
