Please call prior to your arrival to check on the availability of the report and the associated fees. Please wait at least seven (7) days after the date of the incident before calling. All fees must be paid by check or money order at time of receipt. An official copy of the report will be provided to you.
  3. You may also make your request electronically via email. Please provide as much information as possible about the report you are requesting in your email or you may use the Report Request Form. Documents will be provided in Adobe® PDF format to the email address provided. All electronic police report requests will be provided to you free of cost.
