Records Bureau


The Records Bureau is responsible for maintaining all Police Department records, including arrest reports, incident reports and motor vehicle accident reports. The bureau is open Monday through Friday, from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm (excluding holidays).

Obtaining Records

Copies of records can be obtained in person at the Records Bureau during normal business hours. To request a copy of a record, complete a Records Request Form and mail, fax or deliver it to the Records Bureau: 6555 Worthington-Galena Rd.,Worthington, OH 43085, Fax: (614) 436-8794. You may also submit an online Records Request.


The Division of Police will provide copies of up to 25 pages of records at no cost to the requestor. This includes postage costs. Most accident reports and incident reports fall within this limit. Costs may apply for any record in excess of 25 pages or for the duplication of other media forms, such as CDs, photographs and video tapes. Contact the records secretary at (614) 436-8740 if you have any questions about fees.


Most accident and incident reports will be made available within 24-72 hours after they were taken. It is suggested that you call the Records Bureau to see if your record is available for release prior to coming to headquarters. If making a request by mail or fax, the record will be sent to you after it becomes available.
