Requests for police records/reports may also be made by calling the records department at 845-569-7538. Please provide as much information as possible including the name, date, location, type of record, who is requesting the record/report, and a contact phone number. If the record can be produced you will need to make arrangements to pick it up during business hours or provide a self-addressed stamped envelope for mailing. Due to security reasons, we cannot email or fax reports.

Arrest and criminal history can be obtained only from the New York State Division of Criminal Justice Services. The fees are subject to change but the instructions to do so are contained here in the Civilian Record Review document (PDF).
