Clearance Letters

A Clearance Letter is a document that contains information about your clean criminal record. These letters are sometimes needed when applying for a visa, other travel purposes, or when adopting a child. The Stanwood Police Department issues Clearance Letters to City residents only. These letters only certify criminal history within the city jurisdiction.

To request a clearance letter, fill out the Police Records Request Form (PDF) or come in to our office.
