  • Some states have a website where this information can be obtained and all you need is the person's name. You would have to google it for your state or look on your state government website.

  • The date is the Incident report number. Unless you have a friend in the department, you're not going to find it.

  • Yes just go to the local police station give them your name if your the one who filed the report or the name of the person who did and you can get a copy.

  • If you are a party to the incident, you should just be able to go in and get it. If you are trying to get a copy on a report for someone else, you won't be able to do that unless you can get their written permission or if you have a subpeona. Some states allow you to buy criminal records online, in which case you'd have the full record along with report numbers.

  • No, police reports are public information you do not need permission unless the case was locked for some reason which a judge would have to order and that only happens with high end cases.
    Do you at least have an idea of when the time frame was? If so you can even try looking at your local paper. A lot of them print blurbs from police reports and that can help lead you to the date so you can find it.
