What is a clearance letter and how do I get one?

A clearance letter states that you have no criminal history with the Petaluma Police Department. The letter encompasses the previous eight years and applies only to Petaluma Police’s jurisdiction. To request one, contact Police Records by mail or in person. Provide a copy of your valid driver’s license, a written request, and pay a fee of $18. Most requests can be fulfilled within two days, providing the requestor’s record is clear.
