Records

Obtaining a Copy of a Report



Reports can be requested from the Broomfield Police Department Records Unit by mail or walk-in service. At this time, we are unable to email reports. The Records Unit is dedicated to ensuring these requests are processed quickly and efficiently. See below for our fee schedule.
