The closure of South Sound 911’s public counter and administrative headquarters will remain closed for an undetermined time, in accordance with Gov. Jay Inslee’s stay-at-home order and phased approach to reopening. 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, as well as applications for CPL renewals and replacements.
South Sound 911 encourages the public to check the agency’s website or social media before visiting the counter or its headquarters while we work on potential plans to continue serving customers during this closure.
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.
