Members of the Arvada Police Department's Records Unit complete a variety of jobs to include the typing of officer narratives. This means when a police officer "calls in a report" from the field, Certified Master Records Technicians then type the reports from the taped information from the officers. In addition to the typing of narrative, Certified Master Records Technicians also enter accidents, arrests, warrants, citations, field contacts and offenders in the department's records system. The Certified Master Records Technicians also work in state and national databases (CCIC/NCIC) to enter/modify/cancel warrants, missing people and stolen items.

How can I obtain a police report? (Procedure, Costs)

A report can be obtained either in person, by mail or on-line. To request a report we need the case number if possible, the name of the parties involved, the date and time in which the incident took place and the location of the incident. The cost is $5 for the first 10 pages and 25 cents for each additional page. (Most reports are fewer than 10 pages).

Please note: It takes 3 to 5 working days to process the request once received.

You can visit the department's Records Unit to request a report as it is open 24 hours a day, seven days per week, or you can mail your request.
