Obtaining a Police Report

The Chino Police Department's Records Unit is responsible for receiving, maintaining and archiving police records in compliance with Department policies, city policies and state law. All report requests must be reviewed for eligibility for release and may take up to 10 days to process. Certain reports may not be available for release because an investigation is ongoing or because release of the report is restricted by law. Additionally, certain reports must be redacted (have protected information removed) prior to release.

Please note, police reports are not released to arrested individuals and/or suspects. These individuals may obtain reports through their legal representatives through the discovery and/or subpoena process.

You may request a copy of a report if you are:

  • A victim of a crime
  • Authorized representative of the victim of a crime (with a signed waiver)
  • The insurance carrier against whom a claim has been made or may be made
  • Any person who suffered bodily injury or property damage as a result of an incident, including a traffic collision
