Counter closure extended through May 4

March 24, 2020

The closure of South Sound 911’s public counter and administrative headquarters is extended through May 4, 2020, in accordance with Gov. Jay Inslee’s stay-at-home order. This closure impacts customers seeking fingerprinting services and those applying for a new/original concealed pistol license (CPL).

Emergency services including 911 and text-to-911 remain available 24×7, as are the non-emergency lines (253-798-4721 or 800-562-9800). Public records requests may be submitted online and CPL renewals are now being accepted by mail.

South Sound 911 encourages the public to check the agency’s website or social media before visiting the counter or its headquarters in the event the closure period is extended. 

Operated by South Sound 911’s Records department, the public counter is located at 945 Tacoma Ave. S. in Tacoma. The department routinely handles fingerprinting, concealed pistol licensing, background checks, and other services on behalf of law enforcement agencies in Pierce County.
