Fingerprints & Background
Many Ohio employers, both public and private, are required to perform background checks on new hires and individuals obtaining professional licenses. The Attorney General's Office's Bureau of Criminal Identification and Investigation (BCI) completes such background checks by comparing fingerprints received against a database of criminal fingerprints to determine if there is a criminal record. All fingerprints must be submitted to BCI through WebCheck or card scan unless exemption reasons are met.
At this time, the Englewood Police Department does not have the capability to provide WebCheck fingerprinting services. We can provide you with a list of businesses that offer WebCheck. We can provide rolled/inked prints (must have a photo ID) on Tuesday and Friday between 8 a.m. and 3 p.m. For Englewood residents or employment within the city, there is no charge. For all others, the charge is $15 per card. Local (City of Englewood) background checks can be done Monday through Friday from 8 until 4 p.m. and are no charge for residents. Photo ID required.
Copies of Reports
Copies of police or accident reports can be requested electronically at the link to the right or by calling our administration number, 836-1194, between the hours of 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday. If you have it, please provide the report number. Allow up to 72 hours for completion of accident reports. There is no charge for copies of reports.
We provide this service to both residential and business addresses. Just call the non-emergency number at 836-2678 and advise the dispatcher of the year/make/model/color and location of the vehicle. Approach the officer when you see him in the area.

The City of Englewood has active Parking Enforcement Officers who patrol the city looking for parking violations including handicap and fire lanes.
