FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT
Under the State of Michigan Freedom of Information Act an individual may request a copy of a police report which is not currently under investigation.
The requestor must provide the department with enough information to find the report in question.
The department has 5 business days to fulfill the request and an additional 10 days in unusual or extensive requests.
The department has the right to charge a reasonable retrieval and copying fee, which must be paid prior to receiving the information requested.
The Police Department currently charges $5 for a copy of an accident report or complaint report.
