REQUEST TO EXAMINE OR COPY PUBLIC RECORDS
To obtain a copy of an accident or police report, the requester must complete our Public Records Request Form available at the police department or online by clicking the link above.
It may take up to three (3) business days to process, excluding holidays.
To obtain a copy of an unredacted traffic accident report, you must be listed as the driver, passenger, or an authorized representative of the people listed in the report or someone filing a claim.
To obtain a copy of a property or person crime report, you must provide a case number or other information to assist in identifying the incident. The report may be released if it is not under investigation or restricted.
There’s no charge for police reports under the following conditions:
- The request is under 100 copies on paper no larger than 8 ½” x 11" (Note: There is a 100 copy threshold per calendar year per person)
- No research or redaction is required
- Less than two hours of copying or records oversight by personnel
Law enforcement agencies may request records, for official purposes, without filling out a request form.
We can only take records request through the online form or in person at the department. However, if you have a question about how to use the form, you may reach us at 208-773-3517 and ask for the Records Department.
