Obtaining a police report
Copies of police reports can be obtained by requesting a copy from the Communications Center in Gray Hall, located on Central Campus. Although the dispatch center is staffed 24-7, records requests are only accepted during business hours, Monday - Friday 8am - 5pm. There is sometimes a cost associated with obtaining a copy of the report.
Pursuant to Colorado Revised Statute §24-72-203, Public records open to inspection, our agency may require up to three working days to complete the request. If the request is a broad or in-depth request, the applicant will be notified of the time required, which can be up to seven additional working days.
