Access to Green Bay Police Reports


HOW CAN I REQUEST RECORDS?

*You must complete and submit a Records Request Form (see link below for the Federal DPPA Permissible Uses Form); prepayment for the records is generally required.

  • Call the Records Department at (920) 448-3329; or
  • In person between 7:30am – 4:00pm, Monday – Friday (closed most holidays); or
  • By email to recordrequest@greenbaywi.gov ; or
  • By mail (with required Permissible Uses Form (see link below) and prepayment) to:

Records Division
Green Bay Police Department
307 S Adams St
Green Bay WI  54301


HOW LONG DO REQUESTS TAKE AND HOW MUCH DO THEY COST?

Generally, record requests take 7-10 business days for processing.  The cost is 25¢ per page and $12 per disk (photos, audio or video recordings).


WHAT IS NO LONGER GENERALLY AVAILABLE?

Under 18 U.S.C. § 2721(c), a Federal privacy act known as the Drivers Privacy Protection Act (DPPA), the following personal information is not available to the public:

  • Date of birth
  • DMV Photograph
  • Social Security Number
  • Telephone Number
  • Medical or disability information
  • Driver’s license numbers and physical descriptors
  • Vehicle registration plate numbers and related information
  • Vehicle identification Numbers (VIN)


HOW CAN I GET PERSONAL INFORMATION?

In order to access most of the information above, a requester must complete and submit a Records Request Form (see link below for the Federal DPPA Permissible Uses Form).  If a requester fails to meet an appropriate authorization under Section III on the request form, he/she will receive records with all of their personal information contained therein but personal information pertaining to other individuals may be redacted (blacked out); the requester will still be billed for the cost of the record.   This form applies to all record requests, not just driving records. (*DMV photographs, Social Security numbers, telephone numbers, juvenile and medical information is never released, except to the person to whom the information applies or to a parent/legal guardian of that individual.)

IMPORTANT: If you are looking for a name, address, or other personal information about someone, you will not receive that information unless you meet one of the federal authorizations set forth under Section III on the form!
