The Records Section is responsible for the indexing and filing of all police reports generated by UAPD employees. UAPD has recently joined forces with the Tucson Police Department records management system which provides automated data bases for statistical reports.
Obtaining copies of a police report:
Pursuant to ARS 39-121, police reports may be inspected by the public and are subject to limitations provided by law, regulation and judicial decision. All or part of a police report may be available depending on the status of an investigation through the criminal justice system. To request a copy of a report, a Request for Inspection of Public Record form must be completed and submitted to the records section in person, by mail or by fax. You must be able to identify the report by providing the case report number. If the case report number is unknown, provide an approximate date and location, the name of an involved person, and the type of incident. The records section is open to the public from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Monday through Friday, closed during state observed holidays. If further assistance is needed, contact Records personnel at (520) 621-7536 or by fax at (520) 621-3716.
