According to State Statute, reproduction fees and expenses are limited to the actual necessary and direct cost of reproduction. As requests for small amounts of reproduced records may require more expense preparing the bills than for reproduction expenses, the following guidelines will be used.

  • Reproduction expenses are as follows:
    • Accident Reports: $0.25 per reproduced page if over ten pages
    • Photographs, normal size: $1.00 each
    • All records will be charged at the rate of $0.25 per reproduced page.
  • The actual cost to the department of reproducing tapes or other media used for production shall also be paid by the person making the request.
  • The department may request prepayment of fees if the total exceeds $5.00.

Reproduced records will be delivered to the requestor either in person or by using the US Mail Service. Under normal and usual circumstances, reproduced records will not be delivered to the requestor by using a fax machine.

Juvenile records, reports concerning pending or on-going cases, cases that have not been disposed of in court (ie.,cases that may require a motion of discovery to the District Attorney's Office), or records of a sensitive nature may not be able to be released in whole or in part.
