Records Request Form

General Information

The Records Section is responsible for data entry of all case reports, summons and complaints, parking citations, and FIRs (Field Interview Reports). This Section maintains case report files, collects all statistical data for monthly submission to the Colorado Bureau of Investigation (CBI) via the National Incident Based Reporting System (NIBRS), and answers all requests for records, to include case reports, arrest records, and dispatch records, whether in printed copy or video recordings of 911 calls.

Copies of case reports can be requested through the Records Section, Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. Requests can be mailed (see instructions below), or you can respond in person to our facility.

There is a $6.00 charge for reports up to 10 pages in length. Reports of 11 pages or more are $6.00, plus $.25 cents per page copying charge. (Payment can be in the form of money order or cash. No personal checks are accepted. We do not have the ability to accept debit or charge card payments).

To expedite processing your request, provide as much information as possible about the case you are looking for. The most helpful information would be the case report number, date and approximate time the incident occurred, location of incident, type of incident, victim's name, suspect's name, deputy's name, etc. You do not need to provide all the information requested, but please provide what you know. If you need assistance finding any of the information to complete your request please phone (719) 520-7177.

If you mail your request along with the $6.00, and the report is longer than 10 pages, we will contact you to let you know if there is a balance owed. Be sure to include current phone numbers so we can contact you if needed.

All El Paso County Sheriff’s Office records are released in accordance with current Colorado Revised Statutes. Not all information is releasable on all reports. Therefore, the copy of the report you receive may have areas which have been deleted (blacked out).

Please keep in mind that we give very limited information over the telephone. We do not provide background checks, and our inmate information is limited.
