How do I request a copy of a police report?
To obtain a police report in a misdemeanor or infraction case, you can go to the Lewiston Police Department at 1224 F St., Lewiston, ID 83501, and ask for the Police report request form. Complete the form and return it to the Police Department. In person, via US Mail, fax (208)746-6179 or email. The request will be sent to the City Attorney’s office for review and you will be notified where and when to pick up the report or the reasons for denying your request. This process usually takes anywhere from two days to one week.
Attorneys: Please do not request a police report using this process if you are an attorney representing a client in a misdemeanor or infraction matter. In those cases, the City Attorney's office will respond to your Request for Discovery pursuant to the Idaho Criminal Rules.
