Police Reports

Copies of police reports and other Police Department records can be released only when certain criteria have been met. Requests for release of information are reviewed on a case-by-case basis to determine if they can be granted. Arrest reports with open court cases are not available until after the case has been completely adjudicated in court. 

Harbor Police Department Records staff is pleased to answer any questions pertaining to requests for records in accordance with the California Public Records Act. While there are several different circumstances that may prevent a report from being released, the following are the most common reasons:

  • Case still under investigation / report has not been completed
  • Pending criminal court case
  • Safety and confidentiality of victims / witnesses
  • Case involves a juvenile or other protected party

How to Obtain Copies

Police reports can be obtained by filling out the Report Copy Request form. Report requests, except for traffic collision reports, will be processed within 10 working days from the date of the request. Traffic collision reports may take up to 30 days for the investigating officer to complete, which may delay your request for a copy of the report.

What Is Needed

  • Report copy request form
  • Proof of involvement in the case
  • Report copy charges are $1.00 per page
  • Payment can be made by cash, check or credit card
  • Reports can be mailed, e-mailed, or picked up at the Harbor Police Department front counter.
