How To Obtain A Traffic Collision Report from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Office

You can request a copy of a police report from the LA County Sheriffs in-person or through the mail. To request a police report in person, you will need to visit the office and present a valid form of identification. The address and hours of operation are listed below:

12440 East Imperial Highway, Suite 120.

Norwalk, California 90650

 

Opened: Monday through Thursday 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.

Requests that are made in-person are processed on a first-come, first-serve basis. The process can take anywhere from one to three hours depending on the day and time.

To request through the mail, you need to submit your written request to the following address:

You will need to include the following information in your written request:

  • The address to which the report should be mailed
  • Your signature
  • Proof of identification (government issued only)

Although it is not required, you should also include any report numbers, the date of the incident, and the location of the incident. This additional information makes it easier to locate your report.

The request will come with a fee of $25 if you provide a file number or $35 if you do not provide a file number.
