The Records Division of the Carson City Sheriff’s Office is the central repository for all records produced by the agency, including case reports, criminal history information and booking information. The section is responsible for the safekeeping, maintenance and dissemination of official documents. This section also works closely with the District Attorney, Juvenile Probation and the Justice Courts supplying them with the paperwork needed to prosecute cases.
The general public may obtain copies of an accident report for a $5.00 fee. Criminal reports are only released to the listed victim in the case, also for a $5.00 fee. Photos are available for a flat rate of $5.00 and are copied onto a CD. Copies can be ordered in person, by phone, or by mailing or faxing a Report Request Form. All fees must be paid prior to release of copies. Fees and Permits
