The Records Division currently has fifteen full time Police Assistants and two part time Police Assistants, along with a Records Supervisor. In the spring of 2007, we began using retired folks under the Experience Works Program. This program gives us additional personnel free of charge for up to two years. This is saving the taxpayers a lot of money while giving the records division a good shot in the arm in manpower.
The Police Assistants manage a Records Division that saw the addition of over fifteen thousand police reports last year. Nampa Police Department also recently moved to a transcription reporting system, allowing officers to call in and dictate reports from the field, which the Police Assistants then transcribe. This helps keep the officers in the field, rather than bringing them back into the station constantly to do reports.
Requesting a Police Report
The Records Division handles all requests for copies of police reports. All requests for accident and incident reports can be made here, or by U.S. Mail, but must be picked up in person (Insurance Companies excluded).
The following information is necessary to request a report:
- Report number (if available)
- Parties involved
- Location of occurrence
- Date of occurrence
Reports must be paid for at the time of pick-up. The cost for accidents, regardless of page number, is $1.00. Incident reports are 25¢ per page.
