A Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department background investigation begins with the completion of a Personal History Statement. You are not required to complete this form unless you have been scheduled for an initial background investigation appointment. However, this form is very extensive and requires that you obtain several documents that may not be readily available to you. Because you need to fill out this form in time for your initial background interview, we have provided it online so that you may begin working on it at any point.
In addition to the Personal History Statement, there are a variety of other required forms and documents which are necessary to complete the selection process. The links below will direct you to each individual form for download. All forms are provided in an electronic .pdf format so that they can be typed into and printed (unless otherwise stated).
