Records / Forms

Obtaining a Police Report

Copies of police reports should be requested in writing. To simplify this procedure, you may print out a copy of the South St. Paul Police Department Request for Police Data (PDF). Once the form is complete, submit it to the department in person. Many reports are available at no charge.

Also, if you would like to click the link below to fill out our form, it will automatically submit to our clerical department for processing. 

Request for Police Data Form

Private or Confidential Information

The Police Department attempts to fill requests as soon as possible. However, information on some reports may be private or confidential. Therefore, the private or confidential information must be separated before copies can be released. As this process takes time, it may take up to 10 days to process requests.
