Use this form to request release of police information: Police Report Request Form (filable PDF)

This form may be filled out in advance and delivered to UCPD in person, mailed, faxed or submitted on-line.   The affidavit (section 3) must be signed in the presence of a UCPD representative, to receive the requested report, at time of pickup.  There is a non-refundable $10 fee for copies of police reports (checks should be made payable to “U.C. Regents”). Fee will be waived if requester is listed as Victim or is an agent of the University and requires the report for administrative purposes.  Allow up to 10 working days to process and authorize request. You will be notified when your report is ready for pickup.  In order to receive the report, you must be a party involved in the report, or a legal representative of an involved party, as attested to by signature made at time of pickup.

Release of reports is governed by California Public Records Act (Government Code Section 6250-6260) as well as by department policy.  Report information will not be released unless the requester establishes both “right to know” and “need to know.” Note that you might not need the report. Insurance companies, et. al., usually only need the case number. If they want the report, they will need to order it themselves.
