The Records Division has a staff of two individuals who are primarily responsible for the maintenance of case records, pistol permits, and assisting public with report requests. The division serves an important public function, providing copies of accident/case reports, pistol permits and background checks as requested.
Copies of police reports may be picked up in person during the records division hours of operation. Accident reports can generally be picked up without prior notification, whereas incident and/or arrest reports may take longer to process and require prior written notification. To expedite this process, we recommend emailing your request “Request for Report” to firstname.lastname@example.org . The records division will process your request in the order in which it was received and will respond by email advising the requestor of the availability and associated fee. Reports are generally available within 5-7 of the officers working days. Additionally, you may request copies of reports by mail if payment is included with said request. We suggest you call the Records Division to find out the cost of any report you might need, (860) 355-3133 x 2198.
The New Milford Police Department is required under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) to disclose certain records when such request is made in writing. However, some records may not be available for release because of certain exceptions or exemptions, or they may have been destroyed in accordance with state statute. You may find more information on this at The Connecticut Freedom of Information.
Criminal Record checks may be obtained in person through the Records Division if you are a past or current New Milford resident. Please bring a valid photo ID and completed form “Release for records checks”. Only Town of New Milford records will be searched. For a statewide criminal history check, you may visit the State Police Bureau of Identification.
