Expand/Contract Questions and Answers

How do I go about getting a copy of my crime report? What does it cost?
A:
We accept requests by mail, walk-in, and fax. Records staff will contact you by telephone, e-mail, fax or United States mail to advise you of the fees for this service. Requests will not be mailed unless all fees have been paid in advance. Your request for information is normally processed and mailed within ten (10) business days.

Please note: Victims of crimes, their legal representative, or their insurance carriers are entitled to receive a copy of a crime report; refer Government Code 6254(f). If you were involved in a crime but you are not the victim, contact our office to learn how and when these documents can be obtained.
My child is under 18 years old and was involved in a crime. How can I obtain a copy of the crime report?
A:
The Pittsburg Police Department cannot directly release information pertaining to a juvenile involved in a crime. Before being released, a "Juvenile Release" form must be filled out. The Judge of the Juvenile Court will review your request and the crime report. Once the Judge’s decision (approx. 10 business days) is made, records staff will mail the crime report or the decision not to release as prescribed by the judge. Requests will not be processed unless fees have been paid in advance.
