Release of a Police Report

Police reports are available through the Records Division as a convenience to victims.

The primary goal of the Records Division when releasing police reports is to protect the rights of those individuals named in the report. As a result, police reports can be retrieved from the Records Division for the following persons:

  • Persons involved in the incident (victim, suspect, property owner)
  • Attorneys
  • Insurers for persons involved in the incident

Incident Reports and Accident Reports are available to the above-listed individuals through the Records Division beginning five business days after the date of the incident. Requests can be made in person by visiting the Records Division at WUPD or by mail:

One Brookings Drive, Campus Box 1038
St. Louis, MO 63130

When an individual not involved in the incident is representing an individual who is involved, they must have notarized authorization from the involved party giving permission to WUPD to release the information to the designated party.
