Incident Reports

First reports involving criminal offenses where it is not generally considered that an arrest is eminent are public record and therefore should be released upon request. These types of reports usually consist of reports of property crime (thefts, burglary, etc.) requested by victims or their representatives (insurance companies) for insurance purposes.

It is imperative to note that the first report is the only portion considered public record. No investigative or supplemental reports may be released except supplemental information involving a listing of property damaged, lost, stolen, or recovered. These reports are obtained from the Criminal Records Division. For more information, please call (225) 687-5100.

Auto Accident Reports

Motor Vehicle Crash Investigative Reports are not public record (see La R. S. 32:398) but can be released to the parties involved, owners of property effected, and/or their representatives (insurers, attorney’s representing parties, etc.). When a deputy writes an incident or accident report, the parties  involved are provided with a card listing a file number. The file number should be brought to Criminal Records for the report.

Supplemental Reports

As stated above, supplemental or investigative reports are privileged and shall not be released. The only exceptions are supplemental reports detailing property damaged, lost, stolen, or recovered.

Reports Involving Juveniles

Any arrest report of a juvenile or any incident report identifying a suspect who is a juvenile is considered privileged. These reports cannot be released without a court order.
