Some legal aid organizations, like the East Bay Community Law Center, need your California criminal record (RAP sheet) to check what services you qualify for. Follow the steps below to get your RAP sheet and send it to East Bay Community Law Center to complete your Alameda County application.
For applicants working with East Bay Community Law Center: Please follow the steps below to collect your statewide CA DOJ RAP sheet. East Bay Community Law Center can NOT use the Alameda County Sheriff's records so please do NOT spend the $25 to obtain your record for the Alameda Sheriff’s office. Please follow the steps below.
You might qualify for a fee waiver. This means that the California Department of Justice will cover $25 of your RAP sheet fees. Even though you will get $25 off your RAP sheet fees, you will still have to pay the rest. The fee you will have to pay is usually between $20 and $50.
Applying for a fee waiver could add 2-4 weeks to the process of clearing your record and is optional. If you would not like to wait 2-4 weeks to get $25 off of your RAP sheet, you can skip to the next section on how to get your RAP sheet.
