How To Obtain Police Reports
In order to obtain a police report you must complete a "REQUEST FOR COPIES" form. This form can be obtained and completed at your local police department where the report was filed. Phone requests will not be honored.
The cost per report copy is $5.00 for the first 35 pages, $.15 per page thereafter. A $5.00 prepayment is necessary before requests will be processed. You will be notified if more money is needed at the time of pick-up/delivery. Charges may vary from city to city.
When requesting a report copy, please provide the police report number. If you do not have the report number, provide the name(s) of the parties involved, and the date, time and location of the incident.
Refer back to the pamphlet that the officer making the report left with you. The pamphlet should show the date, report number, type of report, the reporting officer and the suspects name and date of birth if known.
Requests usually take 3-5 days to fulfill; however, keep in mind that it may take longer if the investigation is pending.
Reports can be mailed directly to your home, office, post office box, or you can pick them up.
Always obtain a copy of your police report!!!!!!
