Records Unit


The Record Unit manages all the department records and reports.

The most common request from the public is to obtain a copy of a police accident report. Officers submit their reports to the Records Unit upon completion of the accident investigation. Most are available within a few days, but some more complex investigations require more investigation.

Report & Discovery Requests

Report and Discovery requests can be made via our online requests portal. This is the quickest way to get a response to a request, by mail or you may come in during Records business hours and someone will assist you with your request. When making a request via online request please include as much information as you have, date, time of the incident, what type of incident (ex: accident, arrest, log item or incident), and the name(s) of subjects involved; this will assist us in gathering the correct report.

The cost associated with an incident or accident report is $0.50 per page, payment must be paid using a check or money order on the day you pick up the report(s). The cost will be relayed to you when the Records Unit informs you the report is ready to be picked up. Cash cannot be accepted. Please remember you will need a photo ID when picking up report (s).

If you are looking for discovery for an arrest you will need to submit a discovery request form (PDF) to the Prosecution Division. There is no fee for discovery reports.

Victims of domestic abuse can obtain a copy of the police report at no cost pursuant to NH RSA Section 173-B:10 Protection by Peace Officers.
