Police Reports

There are three types of police reports:

  1. Criminal reports
  2. Motor Vehicle Accident reports
  3. Miscellaneous Public reports

Criminal Police Reports

Complete reports are not available until the case is closed, adjudicated, or the statute of limitations has passed. Victims needing a report for insurance purposes may receive a partial report prior to this. At all times, a redacted copy is provided to preserve confidentiality as afforded by Chapter 92-F of the Hawaiʻi Revised Statutes.

Motor Vehicle Accident Reports

Approved motor vehicle accident reports are available to parties of interest as defined in Chapter 291C-20 of the Hawaiʻi Revised Statutes.

Miscellaneous Public Reports

A redacted copy of a Miscellaneous Public Report may be provided to requestors who provide either the report number or date/time/location information that allows for identification of the report.

Redacted Copy of Police Report

A redacted copy of a police report may have personal and numerical identifiers including, but not limited to, name, home and email address, phone numbers, date of birth, social security numbers, and medical, financial, and juvenile information blacked out. The requestor’s information will be left in.

Response Time

Requestor will receive either a response or the requested report within 10 business days of receipt of request.
