What do I need to know about police reports?
Do not assume that the judge has seen the police report. The judge has not read the police report and will not read the report unless it is properly submitted at trial. Do not assume that the City Attorney will properly submit it at trial. If you want the judge to see it, you will have to bring a copy and then see whether or not it will be admitted. Police reports are available via open records request. Open records requests may be made at the police department and it may take 10 business days to fulfill said request.
