How to Obtain a Copy of a Police Report
According to State Law, police reports may only be released to authorized parties. Some reports involving certain types of crimes cannot be released to anyone except to the District Attorney's Office or law enforcement agencies.
To obtain a copy of your police report, you must be:
- A victim or a named involved party to the case (not merely a witness).
- An attorney, an authorized agent, or insurance representative. An attorney or authorized agent must include a signed authorization from the involved party. An authorized agent must also include a copy of the involved party's identification. An insurance representative should reference the name of the insurance company and the insured party's information.
Call the Belmont Police Department Records division at (650) 595-7400, Monday through Friday between 8:00 am and 5:00 pm to request a copy of your police report.
