The Records Section of the Richmond Police Department is the repository for all police documents, reports, and electronic records management. Traffic citations and misdemeanor investigations are prepared and forwarded to the court from the Records Section. Felony reports are routed to the appropriate Investigative Services Unit for follow-up investigation.
Primary duties also include data entry and retrieval from state and national law enforcement information data bases as well as data entry support to the adjacent local police agencies of San Pablo, El Cerrito and Kensington. The information entered into the data base is used by Crime Analysis, Command Staff, all RPD personnel, the community, and other law enforcement agency personnel.
The Records Section is staffed and operational 24 hours a day, 7 days a week including holidays. Much of the time-sensitive work is completed by the Records Specialists who also respond to phone calls and assist citizens with lobby service at the counter. Some of our services include:
Copies of police reports (subject to release) - $20/report
If you need to make a police report at the station the Records Specialists will contact the Communications Center to have an officer respond to the station. Reports taken in the police department lobby are prioritized and dispatched by the Communications Center as officers become available.
It is our desire to provide efficient and expedient service whenever possible. If you have business with the Richmond Police Department Records Section please come by the station or contact us at the number below.
