Obtaining Records


Copies of police reports can be obtained during regular office hours at the Menomonee Falls Police Department Business Office. There is a charge of $0.25 per page.

It generally takes five to ten business days, from the day of an accident, for the report to be available for copies. If it is a very serious accident, one involving many vehicles, or requiring an investigation, it will take longer.

Incident Reports

Incident reports take a minimum of three to five business days before they are available for copies. The availability of incident reports depends largely upon what type of report it is. If an incident is under investigation we will not release a complete copy of the report. We will provide a copy of the front page of the report to use for insurance purposes or proof that the report exists if necessary. Incident reports are available pursuant to the Wisconsin open records laws.

When requesting a record, the Open records & DPPA forms must be completed and sent to MFPD. We are able to accept the forms via email DBraatz@menomonee-falls.org or fax (262)532-8769. The forms may also be dropped off at, or mailed to, the Menomonee Falls Police Department's Business Office. A member of our staff will contact you if the record can or cannot be released, when it is available for pick-up, and the total cost for copies.

Crash Reports

A copy of your crash report can be retrieved from the State of Wisconsin Department of Transportation website. The website requests a document number, this number contains a combination of numbers and letters. The accident number requested on the website is NOT the number used on our reports filed (example: 18-000246). 

Reports can be obtained through the link below through the State of Wisconsin or by clicking on the banner titled "Get your accident report now"
