Most police reports are public records. There are, however, exceptions such as ongoing investigations and juvenile records.
Obtaining Copies Of Police Reports
To request a police report a Public Records Request form will need to be completed and submitted to the McMinnville Police Department. The McMinnville Police Department will respond to all public records requests within seven (7) to ten (10) business days from receipt or provide an explanation of why more time is needed. Copies of police reports are available for purchase from the business office Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
It is the duty of the Records Section to ensure that all confidentiality requirements are met and that criminal history and arrest information is released only to persons who qualify. Providing there is no violation of confidentiality, reports will be provided to requesting parties.
All requests must be paid in advance and will be available for pick up from our business office. If you would like the report mailed to you, a self-addressed stamped envelope must be included.
$10.00 (for the first 20 pages) and $1.00 for each additional page starting at the 21st page, plus shipping/postage (actual cost). Requests for multiple case numbers will continue to be $10.00 (up to the first 20 pages) and $1.00 for each additional page.
$10.00 per CD, per case requested (Photographs, Video, etc.)
Hourly rates will apply for large or complex requests
