The Records Bureau’s main responsibilities
are to securely store, retrieve, distribute and dispose of police
reports. Police reports consist of investigation reports, property
reports, supplement reports, vehicular accidents, arrests, and
miscellaneous incident reports. All reports are assigned a “case
number” and are maintained numerically.
The Records Bureau’s front counter is open to the public
Monday through Friday 9:00a.m. to 4:30p.m. Reports can be picked
up during these hours. Reports or request for reports can be taken
in person or by mail. It is suggested, however, that you call
before requesting a report to confirm that the report has been
received in the Records Bureau and the exact cost of receiving
a copy of same. Please provide as much information as possible
when requesting a copy of a report, i.e. case number. If the case
number is not known, the records division can search for the report
by a mane of parties involved, date, location or type of incident.
