If you are a victim of a crime and are listed as such, or are listed as being involved in a traffic accident, you may obtain a copy of a police report by completing a request form at the Emeryville Police Department's Police Services counter. You can also request a copy via online form. Some reports are protected by State and Federal laws and cannot be released.
Records are released ten days after the formal request has been made and all supporting documentation has been received. For example: copy of government issued identification, requests on business letterhead with identification, payment (if applicable).
Once the Records Specialist has confirmed receipt of information, processing begins. If additional information or time is needed, you will be notified via email or telephone.
If it is found the report requested is still “ACTIVE”, meaning currently being investigated by either our department or the District Attorney; the report cannot be released. However, you have the right to request a copy from the District Attorney’s office via discovery.
Once the process is complete, there are two ways to obtain the report: pick up in person or mailed via USPS. Reports are not emailed.
