RECORDS REQUESTS

Like all government agencies, the Avon Police Department is required under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) to disclose certain records requested in writing by person. Each state has its own public access laws that should be consulted for access to local records. You can find more information on FOIA at the Connecticut Freedom Of Information website. **Copies of records may be requested by phone, mail or in person. However, State Statutes govern which reports are releasable.

Information needed to process your request:

Incident Numbers are the most helpful. Reports can also be found by date, time, location, name of person involved or name of officer. If you lose an infraction or summons ticket we will also copy these for you.

POLICE RECORDS

Cost of Reports:  According to State Statutes, the charge is 50 cents for each side copied.

Accident Reports:  The officers have as long as needed to complete a report. Reports are usually available in two to three business days.
