Police Reports

Please be aware that after an officer has completed a police report, it must undergo an approval process. This process may take five (5) to seven (7) days and reports are not available prior to this time.

To obtain a copy of a police report follow these options: 

In Person

Police reports are available at Police Records during regular business hours. You will be required to fill out the Report Request form. You must present a government issued photo ID in order to obtain a police report. The fee for each copy is $10. Fees are payable by money order or business check only.

By Mail

You may request a police report by mail using the Report Request form. If you do not know the police report number, please be sure to include as much information as possible when making your request such as the date of incident, location of incident, type of incident, and names of involved persons. While we cannot guarantee that we will be able to locate a police report without a case number, we will make every effort to identify the report based on the information that you provide. Including a self-addressed stamped envelope will expedite your request. Requests by mail must include the required $10 fee. Fees are payable by money order or business check only.
