See Police Records Release for instructions on how to request police records.
The Fort Collins Police Services Records Unit gathers information from officers throughout the department before it is processed, stored, and reviewed. This Records Unit is comprised of 18 employees.
The Records Unit is open to the public from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, including most holidays. The Unit is closed on Thanksgiving and Christmas Day.
The Records Unit provides a great deal of support for the police Divisions as well as a considerable portion of time directly assisting the public. Accident reports and offense reports are provided to citizens who request them in person or through the mail. Please see the Fee Schedule for associated costs: http://www.fcgov.com/police/records-release.php. The Records Unit handles nearly 27,000 cases each year. In addition to those cases, all citations which are issued by Fort Collins Police Services officers are circulated through Records before being forwarded to Municipal or County Court.
The Records Unit is where you can go or call if you need to:
- Report a crime in non-emergency situations.
- Report a motor vehicle accident in non-emergency situations (in person only).
- Purchase background checks (from our local database only).
- Purchase copies of police reports and motor vehicle accidents.
