Police reports may only be released to authorized parties and according to State law. There are reports involving certain types of crimes that cannot be released to anyone except to the district attorneys or law enforcement agencies.
The Daly City Police Department is now participating in the CARFAX Police Crash Assistance Program. All collision reports for the Daly City Police Department are now available to purchase online via CARFAX. You can access the collision reports by visiting: http://www.crashdocs.org/ca-dalycity.
To obtain a copy of your police report, you must be:
- A victim or a named involved party to the case (not merely a witness).
- An attorney, an authorized agent, or insurance representative. An attorney or authorized agent must include a signed authorization from the involved party. An authorized agent must also include a copy of the involved party's identification. An insurance representative should reference the name of the insurance company and the insured party's information.
Please fill out a Report Request form and send the completed form and a copy of your identification with a self-addressed stamped envelope to:

You can also drop off the form at the Police Department’s front desk during operating hours (Monday-Friday, 8:00 AM to 6:00 PM, Saturday, 8:00 AM to 12:00 PM). Or, you can also send the completed report request form with a copy of your identification as an attachment via e-mail and send to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
