How Do I Obtain My PD-70 form?

Important Note: Due to COVID-19, obtaining your PD-70 form must be done by appointment.

  • We recommend doing so as soon as possible, as appointments may only be available a few months out!
  • Please schedule an appointment online at Select "Criminal History Check" from the drop-down menu, or call DC Metro PD at (202) 727-4245. 

The Local Police Record form is a personal copy of your police record (also known as a PD-70 form). This form is not available online and you will have to visit DC Metro PD in-person to complete this requirement.

All Swing Subs are required to obtain a personal copy of a police record (PD-70) and upload that copy to the Swing platform.
