To obtain Copies of Police Reports and Traffic Accident Reports:

Police reports may be obtained in person by completing a Public Records Request.

ARS 13-4401.19 defines victim as a person against whom the criminal offense has been committed, or if the person is killed or incapacitated, the person's spouse, parent, child or other lawful representative, except if the person is in custody for the offense or is accused.

Requests for all Public Records may be made in person at the Police Department or you may use the Public Records Request form provided below for electronic requests. Please provide as much information as possible, i.e. type of records, report number (if available), date, time, location of the incident, name(s) of the person(s) involved, etc.  

Money Orders are payable to the Safford Police Department. The Department does not accept personal checks, debit cards or credit cards. Cash is acceptable only when requesting a report in person. The Department does not bill for requests. A self-addressed stamped envelope is required to return your mailed-in request.
