Once a case report has been officially closed and the suspect has been arraigned, if allowable, a copy may be obtained through a written Freedom of Information Act Request (below) which will be processed in accordance with P.A. 442 of 1976, as amended. These requests may take some time to research and compile, so please allow five business days for our response. The response will notify you of the fee, and once payment is received, your request will be completed.
