Police reports may be obtained in the following ways:

An individual involved in a criminal offense may receive one free copy of the associated report if he or she is listed as a victim – note, this does not include copies of associated video/audio tapes or photos.
If you are not making a records request in person, please provide as much information as possible, e.g. type of record, report number (if available), date, time and location of the incident and the name(s) of the person(s) involved, including date(s) of birth.
Local Criminal History Reports (LCHR)
This notarized letter, which is sometimes known as a Letter of Clearance or a Good Conduct letter, will provide you with a local search of the Gilbert Police Department’s arrest and criminal records only. Under Arizona’s Public Records Law (A.R.S. § 39-121) public records employees cannot provide you with information on another person’s arrest record.
To obtain your own Local Criminal History Report, you must:
- Provide a valid government issued photo identification (example: driver’s license or passport)
- Make the request in person or via US mail. It is not possible to make this request electronically.

- You must include your full name along with any former or maiden names, and your date of birth on the request.
- Include $5.00 payment by check or money order for each copy of the Local Criminal History Report requested. Please be sure to indicate the number of copies needed on the request form. LCHR’s that are requested in person may be paid for using credit or debit cards (Visa/MasterCard).
