“Qualified” Citizens who do not possess a government issued Identification Card for which a background check is required must also provide a copy of a current background check.  Background checks can be performed by the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department’s Records Bureau.  The fee for this is $9.00.  For information on how to obtain a background check, visit www.lvmpd.com.  Click on the “Tickets and Records” Tab, then click on “Background Checks”.  Follow all instructions.  Application forms are available on-line and can be hand-carried or mailed in.  Office location/s and office hours are posted on-line; this service is available 7 days a week.
