Records Fees as of March, 2005
The $500 maximum baseline fee will be charged in its entirety when a person or agency requests the entire police technical report. However, if the requesting party does not want or need the entire report and, instead, only needs a portion of the report (such as photographs, or a scaled diagram and nothing else), the Records Supervisor has the discretion to charge only for the portion of the report requested. For example:
- The charge for reproducing technical photographs would be not less than $100.
- The charge for reproducing a scaled diagram would be not less than $100.
It should be noted that the fee charged for a technical report not to exceed $500.
Request for Fee Waiver
Any individual who requests that a technical police report be released with the fee waived will be instructed to submit the request in writing to the Office of the Chief of Police for his/her consideration. The Chief will decide if the $500 is to be waived or reduced. Any waiver or reduction of the $500 fee shall be made by the Chief on a case-by-case basis and shall in no way establish a precedent of any kind for future requests of a similar nature.
