The following form should be utilised in applying for police reports:
Requests relating to accident records, burglaries, thefts, stolen vehicles and criminal damage should be forwarded to the Accident Records Team.
Those relating to assault, sexual assault, personal injury, family violence, neighbourhood disputes and child welfare should be forwarded to the Information Access Team.
If documents to be requested are required for court purposes consideration should be given to obtaining a subpoena from the court handling the matter, as an alternative method.
