MPD Records Information Unit Pre-paid Account

How to create an account

Submit a Prepaid Account Form to the MPD Records Unit and a check or money order made payable to the "City of Minneapolis". There is no minimum amount required to open a prepaid account but you will want to provide enough funds to cover future data requests.  

Accounts may be created in person at the Records Unit, Room 31, Minneapolis City Hall or by mailing the completed form and payment to:

Minneapolis Police Department
Records Information Unit
Pre-paid Accounts
350 S. 5th Street, Room 31
Minneapolis, MN 55415

Once your account has been created, you will have the ability to make requests for data created by the Minneapolis Police Department and in accordance with Minnesota State Statute 13.82

When your your account has reached a balance of $50.00 or below, you will be notified and asked to submit another payment. Accounts with a zero balance are considered inactive and requests will not be fulfilled until the account is replenished with funds.

For questions or assistance, contact the MPD Records Information Unit at 612-673-2961 or [email protected].
