A Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department background investigation begins with the completion of a Personal History Statement. You will also be given a list of required documents during the Intake Process. Be aware that this process requires that you obtain several documents that may not be readily available to you. Make sure you have enough time before the background check to obtain your required documents.
It is important to turn in all required documents in a timely manner.
For any questions regarding the Background Investigation process, please call 1-800 A DEPUTY.
