Police investigations are documented with a computer generated incident report assigned a unique number according to the calendar year the incident is filed. A printed version of the original incident report is submitted for processing and may include victim and witness statements, officers' reports, arrest records, as well as documented pieces of evidence. Every year the officers of the Edmonds Police Department generate approximately 5,000 new case files. Each one of these files is tracked and managed by our record clerks, retained according to particular investigative requirements and then archived as required by state law. Furthermore, our record clerks withdraw key incident, crime and arrest data from each of these new case files to be subsequently entered into the Records Management System.
Included in the records unit is one staff assistant assigned to Public Records Disclosure. For specific records documenting police investigations you may contact the Edmonds Police Department directly. The records will be assembled for your review and copies provided if requested. To make a request for a public record from the police department please use the document at the attached link. Public Disclosure Request
