How to Submit a Police Records Request

*Please note, if you need to report a crime, call 911 instead of using this portal*

Requests for Police Department Records should now be submitted through our new Police Records Request Portal.

Be sure to click on the green  "Police Records Request" box

Important things to know about requesting police records:

  • Requests are processed in the order received. Any request received after 5:00 p.m. will be considered received on the following business day.
  • There is a charge for copies of public records.  Check the current fees for costs that may apply. Methods of payment acceptable at the Police Department are VISA, MasterCard, personal checks or business checks. Cash payments must be made in person at City Hall, 2nd floor, after requesting an invoice at the Police Records Counter.
  • We have five business days to respond to requests.  Within those five days, we may send the requested copies, deny the request, provide a letter stating more time is required due to volume of requests or legal review.  If more time is needed, an estimated date of completion will be provided. (RCW 42.56).
  • Public records are subject to disclosure unless otherwise exempt by law. If this is the case for your request, you will be notified of the qualifying exemptions.
  • Please be advised that, if you have entered other requests that are currently open, the Records Division will queue your other requests separately.  This means that we will work on only one request for each requester at a time, in order to continue providing records to other members of the public.

For more information, contact the Redmond Police Records Division at 425-556-2600. Hours are 8 am - 5 pm, Monday through Friday.

We encourage everyone to submit requests via this portal.  If you are unable to do that, you can still make an in-person request at the department, mail or fax a request:
