Case Report/Incident Report – This is a report made on a specific incident. Release of case reports is dependent on a variety of circumstances, such as, but not limited to the type of report, status of the investigation, status of trials, and ages of the individuals involved in the report. Colorado state statutes prohibit the release of certain case reports or information relating to at-risk adults, juveniles, victims of crime and on-going police investigations. Reports will be reviewed by appropriate personnel to determine if reports can be released. In some instances, the released report may have certain information redacted. Cost is $7.50 for the first hour and $25.00 for each additional hour non-refundable search fee, and .25 cents per page copy fee. (Effective as of September 24, 2020)
Release of Information Policy
Information concerning any on-going or not filed cases will be only released to the parties directly involved. If active in court, the parties need to contact their attorney to request any information from the District Attorney’s Office. Any parties not directly involved in the case will need to fill out a request for records form, available at the Kiowa County Sheriff’s Office and return the form filled out. Any parties requesting information will have to wait 72 hours after turning their form in before any information will be released. If the case is active in court, no information will be released to parties not directly involved.
Correct pre-payment of fees is required. Please send a self-addressed, stamped envelope for your return.
