Records Request

Overview

The Windsor Police Department Records Unit gathers information from officers throughout the department before it is processed, reviewed and stored and is generally staffed Monday through Friday 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. They are closed on holidays. The Records Unit handles nearly 22,000 cases each year. In addition to those cases, all citations which are issued by Windsor Police Department officers are circulated through Records before being forwarded to Municipal or County Court.

Request a Record

Copies of accident reports and offense reports can be provided to citizens who request them in writing. Please complete our Request for Criminal Justice Records form and either email it to PoliceRecords@windsorgov.com or drop it off at the Windsor Police Department, 200 N. 11th St. Please see the Town of Windsor fee schedule for associated costs.

By Colorado law, we are allowed at least three business days from receiving the formal written request to respond. Generally, reports can be available sooner than the three days. Many reports, however, are not immediately available such as:

  1. If a report is still under investigation, it cannot be released unless authorized by the investigating officer.
  2. If there are circumstances where the report would need to be redacted according to Colorado Open Records Act/Colorado Criminal Justice Records Act.
  3. If the report is in storage.
  4. If the report has been destroyed in accordance with the Colorado Archives Destruction Schedule.

Traffic Accident Reports

Traffic accident reports can be accessed through our online reporting system. You must have the case number provided to you by the officer. For customer service issues related to the LexisNexis website only, you can contact their support at (866) 215-2771.

Additional

If you are unable to use any of the online services, you may come to the Records Unit during normal business hours to purchase background checks/clearance letters (local contacts only), purchase copies of police reports and traffic accident reports, get a vehicle identification number (VIN) check.
