The Records Division maintains current and historical police accident and incident reports. We disseminate police related reports to individual citizens, insurance companies, police officers, and other governmental jurisdictions. Reports are also made available to the various courts on local, state and federal levels.
All open records requests shall be submitted to the Records Division during business hours- 8:00am to 4:00pm, Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, at Forest Park Police Department. 

·        A records clerk will determine whether the City has documents that are responsive to the request, and if the documents fall within any of the exceptions to the Open Records Act.
·        Within three (3) business days of receiving the request, the City must notify the requestor whether the requested documents are public documents subject to disclosure, and to permit inspection and copying.
·        All inspection, extraction and copying of public records, instruments and documents shall only be done under the supervision of the lawful custodian of the record or his/her designated assistant.
·        The requestor will be charged $0.10 for each page photocopied and may be charged an additional fee for certified copies or for other copies for which a fee is specifically authorized, or otherwise provided by law.
·        In addition to copying fees, a reasonable hourly charge will be collected for search, retrieval and other direct administrative costs for complying with a request.  The hourly charge will not exceed the salary of the lowest paid full-time employee who, in the discretion of the custodian of the records, has the necessary skill and training to perform the request.  However, there is no charge for the first quarter hour.
