Find an incident or crash report

Online Police Reports and Records

The Police to Citizen tool (P2C) was developed to make of most incident, arrest, and crash reports occurring after January 1, 2003, available to the public for instant download.

If you are the victim of a crime or involved in a vehicle crash, this tool can assist you in obtaining a copy from your home computer.

In addition, P2C is a perfect companion to the Community Crime Map and Simplicity.

Using the crime map or SimpliCity, you will see the incident (case) number. Using P2C you can then look for the incident/arrest report associated with this event by searching for the case number and date range. If a publicly available report is available you will be given the option to download a PDF document.
