To obtain police records, please complete a Report Request Application Form (PDF) or request a copy at the SDSU
Police Department front desk. A $10
processing fee in the form cash, check or credit card must be submitted to a
cashier at the Parking Services and Key Issue window prior to submitting the
application. Bring your request and
payment receipt to the front desk along with identification. The Report Request Application Form may also
be submitted via mail, along with a $10 check or money order payable to SDSU
Police. If you choose to mail your
request, you must have it notarized so we can verify your identity. A response
will be mailed to you within 10 days.
You may call the SDSU Police Records
Unit at (619) 594-1986 to check the status on your report request and to verify
it is releasable, however please allow 10 days for your request to be
researched and mailed. You must be an
“involved party” or a parent of a minor child in order to obtain a copy of a
police report or traffic accident report.
An “involved party” includes the victim, reporting party, party
mentioned, driver, registered owner, etc.
If the case involves an arrest, the report may not be releasable until
the case has been adjudicated. You will
be required to present identification to verify you are an “involved party.”
Your report may have been a redacted
(blacked out) area or missing pages.
Redactions are specifically required by law and policy that we are not able
to circumvent. Typically, property
crimes will only indicate the damaged property, lost or stolen articles and
values for insurance company purposes to recover your loss. The investigative portion of the report is
not released in order to protect the integrity of the investigation.
