POLICE REPORT REQUEST POLICIES AND PROCEDURES
Cases resulting in an arrest cannot be released without the written authorization of the Lincoln County District Attorney's Office. Records of juvenile defendants are kept confidential and cannot be released to the public. These records can only be released to public agencies, i.e. Children Services Division, Juvenile Department, District Attorney's Office, Department of Justice, and other law enforcement agencies.
If a case has a citation attached to appear for Municipal Court, the report cannot be released until verified by the Court Clerk that the case has been cleared from their docket.
There is a $15.00 fee for each copied police report and traffic crash report, regardless of the number of pages contained in each report. Photos on CD are also $15.00.
While we prefer requests for reports are made in person, a request may be mailed to Newport Police Department with a copy of the requestor's identification along with a check for the required fee, made payable to the City of Newport.
