A victim of a crime can request confidentiality, which prevents the person's name or anything that would serve to identify him/her from being released to the public. Reports that are part of an on-going investigation are not releasable until the case they relate to is completed. Cases involving juveniles also have special rules that apply to their dissemination.
Criminal Justice System Inter-Agency Requests
Local, state, and federal investigative and law enforcement agencies can request OPD records online. Please allow ten (10) business days to receive a response to your request.
