Request a Report
In order to obtain a copy of a report, you must be the subject of the record or the legal guardian of a minor listed on the record.
Report Request Requirements
Generally, copies of police reports are not able to be released until after they have been adjudicated, or processed through court. If you are the defendant on a case that is not adjudicated and are currently not represented by an attorney in the matter, you can obtain a copy through Discovery at the Prosecuting Attorney’s Office. If you are represented by an attorney, your attorney will need to request the report. If you are listed as a victim of domestic violence on the report you are seeking, you may obtain it at no charge.
Request Process Time
The law provides 10 working days for us to process your request (5 days if you can show that you must have an expedited response). When you make a request, you will be required to fill out a Government Records Access and Management Act (GRAMA) Request Form. Please also provide the following information:
- Case number (if available)
- Date(s) of incident(s) requested
- Description of record(s) and reason for request (be specific, listing any and all documents needed)
- Photo identification
Submit Your Form to the Records Division
Please make sure you are as specific as possible as to what information you are requesting and why you need this. You may request more than one record on the form. The GRAMA request form may be turned into the Records Division personally or you may fax in this request. The fax number for Records is 435-654-3286. Please also include a legible copy of your identification with the form.
Our policies and procedures for the collection, compilation, storage, and dissemination of official records and information are in compliance with state laws found in Title 63G, Chapter 2 of the Utah Code Annotated. This set of laws is known as the Government Records Access and Management Act (GRAMA). These laws identify those records that are accessible to the public, those that are confidential, and those that are sensitive. There are also guidelines and recommendations regarding the handling of those records. Review the GRAMA code at the Utah State Legislature Website.
