Maricopa Police Department

 "Making Every Contact Excellent."


The Maricopa Police Department record section is responsible for all police reports and documents produced by Department members. Record personnel process and handle all requests from the public for copies of police reports.

Police reports must be completed by the investigating officer then submitted for approval. It normally takes 7-10 days for a police report to be routed through the approval process. Active investigation or other more detailed reports may take additional time before they are available for release. Once a Public Records Request is submitted, MPD Records staff will contact you letting you know when the report is available for pickup, along with payment instructions.

To obtain a copy of a police report a Public Record Request must be submitted. There is a $5.00 copy fee for each report being requested. Victims of certain crimes may receive a copy of their report at no cost. MPD police cases are not eligible for electronic release.

The following information is required to properly process police report requests:

  • Incident number (MPD uses a nine digit report number system: 140101000)
  • Nature of incident
  • Date and time of incident
  • Location of incident
  • Name(s) of person(s) involved

Submission of police report requests with insufficient information will result in delayed processing.
