Central Records Section

The Police Department's Central Records Section provides professional service in processing and disseminating public records to the general public, other law enforcement agencies and persons of interest in a courteous and timely manner.

In an effort to improve efficiency and convenience for our community, the Anne Arundel County Police Department has incorporated a streamlined records request process. Requests can be submitted online from the buttons below. Our service window at Police Headquarters is open on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. should you need additional help. However, tablets are available in the headquarters lobby to submit your requests Monday thru Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
