Important things to know about requesting police records:

  • Requests are processed in the order received. Any request received after 5:00 p.m. will be considered received on the following business day.
  • There is a charge for copies of public records.  Check the current fees for costs that may apply. Methods of payment acceptable at the Police Department are VISA, MasterCard or personal check. All cash payments must be made in person at City Hall, 2nd floor.
  • We have five business days to respond to requests.  Within those five days, we may send the requested copies, deny the request, provide a letter stating more time is required due to volume of requests or legal review.  If more time is needed, an estimated date of completion will be provided. (RCW 42.56)
  • We are not authorized to provide public records for commercial use. (RCW 42.56)
  • Public records are subject to disclosure unless otherwise exempt by law. If this is the case for your request, you will be notified of redactions and the law authorizing the redaction.
