The department will send you a response within ten days notifying you whether your records are legally eligible for release, the fees for your request, and when the records will be available for pickup. Please note, payment must be received before the records will be released.

If you are seeking to file a general Open Records Request –, i.e., one that is not police-related, please visit City Hall’s Open Records page.
