How do I obtain a clearance letter?
You may obtain a clearance letter at the Records Section of the Police Department if you are a current or former City of Bothell resident with proof of residency. The fee is $10 and includes notarization. We will ask for picture ID, and conduct a records check for criminal history within the City of Bothell only. If you need a statewide records check, please contact the Washington State Patrol.
