MOTION FOR DISCOVERY REQUESTS
Motion for Discovery Requests need to be filed with the Municipal Court.  The Record Requests form (below) is to be used for only police and accident reports taken by the Weston Police Department.
RECORDS REQUEST :
By law, certain records may be open upon request to certain individuals but closed to the general public.   Please state your interest in the records requested (such as general public, party, or representative of a party to an accident, victim, etc.) so that we may determine whether those records, if closed to the public, may be available to you.
The Weston Police Department only accepts faxed or email requests from Government agencies for records, and will not respond to requests by e-mail from a private person or business.
Requests for records may take up to 20 business days to process.   Please do not call to check the status of your request until 20 business days after your request was submitted.

  • Once a request for a report(s) is received and processed, an invoice will be sent to the requestor via email (if provided), or by mail notifying you the request for a report(s) is completed and ready for release.   When payment is not required, the records will be sent by  mail or may be picked up at the police station.   Reports may also be e-mailed to the requestor upon request.
  • The cost for an Incident or Crime report is $10.00.   Accident reports are $5.00.    If photo(s) are associated with the requested record, it is an additional $5.00 for a CD containing the photos.    Photo requests maybe placed on a CD, printed on plan or photo paper, or as a PDF file.    When payment, in the form of a personal check, money order, cashiers check, or business check, is received by the Weston Police Department, the records will be released to the requestor once the check has cleared the associated banking institution.
