Minnesota Police Records

Minnesota police records are open to the public, but not easy to access. Some records are restricted to certain information and others are subject to Minnesota’s privacy laws. The Department of Health in Minnesota records some information, but police records must be obtained from the city’s police department where the incident took place. Police records are fact-based reports about an incident where the police were called or when a report was made in person at the police department. You may want to find out if a person is telling the truth about an incident or delve further into his or her background. If you don’t know the city where the incident took place or need a general criminal background search on a person, send a request to:

Bureau of Criminal Apprehension
CJIS – Criminal History Access Unit
1430 Maryland Avenue E
Saint Paul, Minnesota 55106
