FAQ's

  1. My house has been broken into. How do I go about getting a Technician out to dust it for fingerprints?
    All burglary complaints are assigned to a detective in the Criminal Investigations Bureau, usually by 10:00 a.m. the day following a break-in. Contact the Record Section, (810) 237-6870 and they will look up the detective that has been assigned to your case. The investigator will determine whether or not a Technician will be sent out. If possible, have a complete list of items missing, including serial numbers. Also, provide the detective with names of possible suspects. If you wish to secure your home or business, feel free to do so. If there is broken glass or other items that had possibly been handled by the burglar, try to preserve the evidence for possible future fingerprinting & set aside. Notify your investigator of this possible evidence.
     
  2. Can I have the police department check someone else to see if they have a record, or see if there is a warrant?

    Absolutely not. Michigan State Law absolutely prohibits the police department from sharing information obtained from the National NCIC computer system with anyone other than law enforcement personnel. The department could be fined or lose its terminal for violations of these regulations. You may run a record check on yourself, providing you have a valid picture I.D.

    WE NO LONGER DO CRIMINAL HISTORY RECORD CHECKS FOR ANYONE OTHER THAN FOR ANOTHER POLICE AGENCY. WE REFER THE CUSTOMER TO EITHER THE CITY OF FLINT  LAW DEPARTMENT TO SUBMIT A FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT REQUEST FOR THE  INFORMATION THEY NEED OR TO A STATE SPONSORED WEBSITE WHERE CRIMINAL HISTORY CHECKS ARE PROVIDED FOR A FEE.
     

  3. What if I have a question about the status of my case?

    Cases involving criminal acts, which appear to have some basis of solvability, are referred to a detective for further investigation. To inquire about your case, call the Criminal Investigations Bureau at (810) 237-6900.
     

  4. Can the police open my car if I have locked my keys inside?

    Due to the potential for damage to some vehicles, the police department does not open locked vehicles. A locksmith is your best alternative.
    If a child is locked inside your vehicle, the police department will send a rescue unit to remove the child from the vehicle, possibly by breaking a window.
     

  5. Can I get a Car towed from in front of my house?

    The police department can only have vehicles towed that are on public property. Call a wrecker service in your area and the vehicle will be towed away at no cost to you. The wrecker service will notify the owner once they have determined who that may be.
     

  6. How can I find out if someone is in jail.

    Contact the Genesee County Jail at (810) 257-3426.
     

  7. How do I get a copy of a police report?

    All copies of reports are obtained from the Traffic Division, which is open Mon-Fri from 8:00 a to 4:00 pm.
    Also, accident reports can be obtained on-line from the State Police.
    To purchase a report, people can go to the online Ticket Payment and Accident Report Retrieval Service website at :
    https://www.authorizetransaction.com/iyeTek/CrashSearch.aspx

    THE TRAFFIC SECTION ONLY PROVIDES COPIES OF TRAFFIC REPORTS ALTHOUGH THEY PREFER THAT REPORTS ARE OBTAINED VIA THE WEB SITE. THE RECORDS & IDENTIFICATION SECTION PROVIDES COPIES OF CRIMINAL COMPLAINTS ONLY.
     

  8. How do I go about applying for a CCW permit?

    You must be a City of Flint resident and have a current, valid I.D. proving that. The cost for the CCW application is a $5.00 City charge and $39.00 which must be in the form of a check or money order and made out to the State of Michigan. If the application for the CCW permit is denied, you will not receive a refund

    THE CITY OF FLINT NO LONGER PROCESSES CCW APPLICATIONS. WE ONLY PROVIDE A CCW PACKET THAT, WHEN COMPLETED, IS RETURNED WITH APPROPRIATE FEES TO THE GENESEE COUNTY CLERK’S OFFICE. THE COUNTY NOW PROCESSES ALL CCW APPLICATIONS.
     

  9. Do I need a CCW permit to take a handgun with me when I go hunting?

    Not necessarily. If you are in possession of a valid hunting license, you may carry a handgun on your person providing you do not conceal it. You may carry a handgun while hunting on the OUTSIDE of your clothing. If inclement weather necessitates having the handgun inside your clothing and concealed, you will need to have a CCW permit, or you will be in violation of state law. Unless you are in possession of a General or Restricted CCW permit, you must transport your gun, unloaded, in the trunk of your vehicle and keep the ammunition in a separate location, possibly in the glove compartment. When applying for a General CCW permit, you will also be required to have a gun Safety Certificate completed by an authorized firearms instructor, or a police officer
     

  10. How do I go about getting a purchase permit to buy a gun?

    There is a $5.00 charge at the time of application. You will need a valid picture I.D. There is a 24-hour wait while your record is being checked. In most cases you will be able to pick up your purchase permit the next day. Prior felony arrest disposition checks may take longer. If you have been convicted of a felony or have shown a propensity for violence or assaultive behavior, your permit application may be denied. The fee is not refundable.

    PER STATE STATUTE, WE ARE NO LONGER PERMITTED TO CHARGE THE $5.00 FEE FOR THE PROCESSING OF A PURCHASE PERMIT. WE ARE, HOWEVER, ALLOWED TO CHARGE A $2.00 FEE FOR THE NOTARY SERVICE REQUIRED FOR ALL PURCHASE PERMITS.
