Requests for Information
The Information Access & Privacy unit manages Freedom of Information Requests; Police Report Requests and Requests for Destruction of Fingerprints.
If you are requesting records containing information about yourself, you will be asked to produce government-issued photo identification, such as a driver’s license or passport. This can be done either when you submit your request or when you pick up the response. You may also mail a copy of your identification as an attachment to your request. You may fax a copy as well.
Please note: Records will not be sent until a copy of your identification has been received.
Restrictions to Requests and Records
In the event that your request contains personal information about someone else and compromises said person’s privacy, the Transit Police is not required to complete the request and can delete that information from the record.
If the record that you request contains sensitive information that would be harmful to a law enforcement matter if released, we are not required to provide that part of the requested record.
