How do I get a copy of a police report?

Requests for public records shall be made by completing and submitting the Vermillion Police Department Public Records Request Form (PDF). Upon receipt of a completed form, the Chief of Police or his designee will review the request and determine which, if any, records can be released. At that time, the requester will be notified of the disposition of his / her request, as well as any fees associated with preparation of the record. By resolution, current fees related to release of information are established as:

  • $2 per page for incident report
  • $5 for a traffic accident report
  • $2 per page for any printed color photos
  • $25 base fee per CD / DVD, plus additional per hour charge based on length of video and redaction

In cases where a request requires substantial research and/or preparation time, or when postage charges apply, additional charges may be incurred.
