Ask HPD: How can I get a copy of my police report?

Question: How can I get a copy of my police report?

Answer: Copies of police reports or letters of verification must be made in person at the records and identification division at the HPD main station located at 801 South Beretania Street.

A complainant, victim, or witness in a criminal report may obtain a letter of verification confirming that a police report has been filed.

The report itself will not be releasable as long as the case is pending.

After a case has been closed, a redacted copy of the report is releasable to anyone that requests it.

Motor vehicle collision reports are available from the records division seven days following an accident.

Drivers, passengers, pedestrians, and other involved parties may obtain copies.

All requestors must provide a valid photo ID.

If you are requesting a report for another person, a notarized letter of authorization is required.

A small fee will be charged for the report copies.
