Online Police Report Request Form

You may request a copy of a Police Report using the form below. Due to the sensitivity of some reports, not all reports are releasable; even to involved parties. In this case, you may be required to obtain a Court Order authorizing the release of a report copy by the presiding Judge. You will be contacted if this is the case. Copies that are approved to be released can be picked up during regular business hours at the Los Altos Police Department

If you are requesting a report copy before your court date, a copy must be obtained directly from the Palo Alto Superior Court Clerk's Office.

Case Number (Format: 000000-0000) should be noted on the reverse of the Officer's business card that was given to you. If you don't know your case number, please complete this form with as much information as possible.
