Public Information Police Reports
Anyone may request public information created and maintained by the Minneapolis Police Department. A public information police report includes the date, time, address, nature of the incident, adult persons involved, and a brief description of what occurred.
Police reports are available beginning with the year 1990. All reports are processed in accordance with the State of Minnesota Data Privacy Law and department policy.
Private, Confidential and/or Non-Public Data
Access to Private, Confidential, and Non-Public data will only be released in accordance with Minnesota State Statute 13.82 on a case by case basis. The Police Records Information Unit does not release Juvenile Arrest data. Please contact the Records Unit for more information and requirements for access to this type of data.
If you are coming to Room 31 in person, call the Records Information Unit first to make sure a report is available.
