Police Records Unit Changes

Effective Monday, June 3, 2024 ALL public requests for police records (Crash Reports, Police Incident Reports, Body Worn Camera video) will only be available to request electronically. You do not need to respond in person to Police Headquarters/ Records Section to obtain authorized police records.

Obtaining Police Records

You may request the records using the Public Information Request form. If you do not know the police case number, please be sure to include as much information as possible when making your request such as the date, specific location of incident, type of incident and names of involved persons. While we cannot guarantee that we will be able to locate a police record without a case number, we will make every effort to identify the record(s) based on the information that you provide. Police Department records may also be requested by mail or in person. Requests by mail must include the required fee. Including a self-addressed stamped envelope will expedite your response. Prior to mailing your request or appearing in person, you may call us on (410) 222-8750 to confirm that the record(s) is available.

All requests will be processed as quickly as possible. Upon receipt we will acknowledge your within 10 business days and will respond within a reasonable time, but no later than 30 days. If fees are associated with this request, you will receive an estimate of costs which must be collected prior to the request being fulfilled.
