MPD Public Records Request

Per Idaho statute, every person has a right to examine and take a copy of any public records of the state, which includes crime reports as long as the case isn’t under investigation or restricted.

Requests are typically responded to within three business days. If more time is needed to process your request, you will receive notice in writing.

There is a charge associated with the disc and there may be a charge for additional staff time to review and redact protected information if needed.
