COVID-19 UPDATE 02/25/2021: 


The Ingham County Sheriff’s Central Records Office will require appointments for in person service(s) starting Friday November 6th. The recent increase in COVID cases has made us reevaluate our staff’s health and that of the community. By reducing the number of people in our lobby at any given time, we can greatly limit the potential for exposures. Therefore, Monday through Thursday appointments will be scheduled for fingerprinting only, appointments will be provided on a first call basis and scheduled on the hour from 8am to 4pm. Fridays will be reserved solely for License to Purchase pistol applications and scheduled every hour from 8am to 4 pm. Copies of reports can be requested on line at and pistol registrations may be placed in the lock box inside the Central Records vestibule.  These service are for Ingham County residents only.

The Sheriff’s Office would like to thank everyone for their patience and understanding during this COVID-19 Pandemic time.
