Request A Police Report


The health and safety of our community members and our staff remain our top priority. In response to the COVID-19 virus we are implementing social distancing measures which include changes to how we conduct business and respond to calls for service. During normal business hours our lobby will be closed, however staff will be available to provide assistance.

Our records staff is asking that requests for a copy of a police report be submitted with the attached fillable form and a legible copy of your photo ID. These may be sent to PoliceRecords@pacificapolice.org                                          

For your protection and the protection of our staff members, reports will be mailed via U.S. Postal Service in the coming weeks.  Please note the report request form will NOT save entered information if the following fields are not properly completed:         

          Date of Request



          Phone Number

Please call our records staff with any questions at 650-738-7314. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding. We are all in this together and will get through this together.

 Fillable Report Request Form

To obtain a police report, a report release form must be completed and signed by the requesting party. These forms are available at the Records counter at the Pacifica Police Department. The Records office is open Monday through Friday from 8:30am to 5:00pm (and until 7:30pm on Wednesdays) with the exception of some holidays.

If you are not in the area, you may request a report in writing. Please include a self-addressed, stamped envelope with your request. Your request should include your name, date of incident, report number (if known) and enough information so that we can comply with your request. Report requests can be mailed to 2075 Coast Highway, Pacifica, CA 94044.

If you are not entitled to receive a report you will be notified in writing. The department is not currently charging a fee for a police report.

If you do not wish to come to the Police Department, effective April 1, 2010 most vehicle accident reports may be obtained online for a small fee.  Please follow the link below to Lexis Nexis and follow the directions to access you report.  To search for an accident you will need the report number, date of the accident, and name of the involved party (accidents involving special circumstances, fatalities, and some hit and runs will not be available online).  Please allow a minimum of 7 days after the accident before attempting to obtain a report.  If you have any questions call Police Records at (650) 738-7314.
