Discovery is the pretrial process by which one party discovers the evidence, such as police reports that will be relied upon in the trial by the opposing party.

Requesting a Copy of a Police Report or Other Discovery


  • If you have an attorney, or if you are planning to hire an attorney, your attorney must request the police report
  • Discovery must be requested in writing
  • Discovery is available the day before the arraignment date and must be requested at least 24 hours in advance (Arraignment - a court appearance in which a defendant is made aware of the charges against them and advised of their rights. This is usually the first court appearance after a person is cited or arrested)
  • Payment is required at the time of pickup (see the fee schedule)
  • Only the defendant may request and pickup discovery


Please contact our office to request discovery. We require a Letter of Representation along with the request for discovery in writing. We do accept fax requests, however discovery documents are not faxed in return.
