What you need to bring with you to the July 8 workshop:
● Your Rap Sheet (see below for how to obtain it).
● A photo ID.

How to get your Rap Sheet:
● For adult records (Chicago cases), bring $16 to the Chicago Police Dept., Access & Review Dept., 3510 S. Michigan Ave., between 8:30 a.m. and 12:00 p.m. You will need to go back to pick up the Rap Sheet a week or two later.
● For juvenile records (Chicago cases), bring $16 to the Chicago Police Dept., Youth Division, 3510 S. Michigan Ave., ph. 312-745-6004, between 8:30 a.m. and 12:00 p.m. You will need to go back to pick up the Rap Sheet a week or two later.
● For suburban cases, go to the police agency where the arrest took place and request a Right to Access & Review. Fees for Rap Sheets are set by the local departments.
● For arrests outside of Chicago, contact the Illinois State Police for a more comprehensive report.

Please allow at least three (3) weeks for processing of the Rap Sheet by the CPD. It is a good idea to request Rap Sheets by June 30, at the latest, to make sure you will have yours for the workshop.
