Copies of Police Reports

How to Obtain Copies


Request forms for all police reports are available at the front counter in the Police Department, or by downloading the form, filling it out and returning it to the Police Department. If you cannot come to the Police Department during normal business hours (Monday - Friday, 8:00am - 5:00pm), you may also fax the form along with a copy of your photo ID to 619.667.7519. Report requests with the exception of traffic collision reports will be processed within 10 working days from the date of the request. Traffic collision reports may take up to 30 days for the investigating officer to complete, which may delay your request for a copy of the report.
