Q: Can I obtain a copy of a police incident report?

The fee to obtain a confirmation report is $5.00. Please contact the department in advance if you are requesting a confirmation report, so that records staff have sufficient time to prepare it. Due to privacy issues with regards to names, addresses, personal info, etc., as well as the sensitivity of police investigations, we can NOT provide copies of actual incident reports to members of the public.
