The Records Bureau’s main responsibilities are to securely store, retrieve, distribute and dispose of police reports. Police reports consist of investigation reports, property reports, supplement reports, vehicular accidents, arrests, and miscellaneous incident reports. All reports are assigned a “case number” and are maintained numerically.
The Records Bureau’s front counter is open to the public Monday through Friday 9:00a.m. to 4:30p.m. The Records Bureau is located on the 2nd Floor of the Town Hall located at 367 Valley Brook Avenue (Elevator access in the rear of Police headquarters main entrance). Reports can be picked up during these hours. Request for reports can be taken in person or by mail. Discovery requests can be requested by mail or fax. OPRA requests are handled through the Clerk’s office. It is suggested, however, that you call before requesting a report to confirm that the report has been received in the Records Bureau and/or if it can be released. Please provide case number or as much information as possible with your request. It should be noted that many reports cannot be released and/or are redacted.
