Requests for incident reports or traffic crash reports by persons involved generally will be processed when the investigation is completed. University of Michigan faculty, staff or students are not charged for obtaining report copies when involved in the reported incident. Individuals involved in the incident who are not affiliated with the University will be charged a fee to process the request.
The University of Michigan Police Department is committed to complying with its obligations under the Freedom of Information Act (F.O.I.A.) without undue delay, but realizes that under certain circumstances the release of records may have an impact on victims, witnesses and the integrity of investigations. If an investigation is on-going and still open, a request for any related UMPD report may be denied and information of a personal nature will be withheld or redacted where the public disclosure of such information would constitute an invasion of privacy.
For further information on the Freedom of Information Act and its applications to the University, refer to the FOIA Office website: http://www.umich.edu/~urel/foia.html.
To request a copy of a report or ask other related questions contact the UMPD Records Unit at (734) 763-3434.
