  • Not all requests for copies of police reports will be honored.

Procedure for obtaining copies of police reports:

The Rock Springs Police Department has launched a new system for requesting police reports. Starting today, requests and payments for a Rock Springs Police Department Report can be submitted online. You can access the portal at RSPD Report Request.
