To get copies of a Police report, please fill out the Police Department Records Request Form (DOC). The form is available in the lobby of the Public Safety Building or online available for download and printing, Police Department Records Request Form (DOC). The request forms can be dropped off at the Public Safety Building or mailed to the Westbrook Police Department, addressed to the Records Administrator. There are fees associated with purchasing a report - please see the request form for the amount. Payment is due before any reports can be released, and checks should be made out to the City of Westbrook. If you are requesting a copy of report that is in the court system, we cannot provide that to you. You will need to go through the discovery process with the District Attorney's Office.
