REQUEST A POLICE REPORT
*UPDATE NOV. 7, 2022 * The Department has recently moved to a new records management system and is also updating its UCR data collection system to the modernized National Incident-Based Reporting System (NIBRS/CIBRS). Due to these two major transitions and unforeseen challenges with the implementation of the new RMS system, the Department is currently experiencing a delay in reviewing statistical data and processing requests for police reports. The Department prides itself in providing these services in a timely manner and is taking the necessary measures to address these delays.
