Most police reports will be approved and available within five (5) business days after making the report. In order to obtain a copy of a police report, a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) form, or in some cases a subpoena may be necessary.
A Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request can be made via an online form, or by downloading and filling out the Request for Public Information Form (PDF). The completed PDF form can be dropped off, mailed or faxed to the Police Department at (630) 980-9767. The Village of Roselle will reply to your request within five (5) business days.
There is no charge for the first 50 (black and white) pages of a police report (15¢ per additional page, starting with page 51) and $5.00 for basic Traffic Crash Reports. Specialized reports and/or photographs (if releasable) have increased charges. See the Police FOIA Fee Schedule (PDF) for more information. Requestors will be called when the report is ready for pick up and will be advised of the total amount of fees due. Copies of all reports requested are picked up at the Police Department.
Traffic Crash Report
Copies of basic Traffic Crash reports can be requested at the Police Department Records Division or online via our BuyCrash.com Services. There is a $5.00 charge for each copy.
In order to obtain a report without the use of a FOIA form, the requesting party must be either directly involved (Driver, Vehicle or Property owner) or an insurance co. representing a directly involved party. The report must also have been approved and closed before a copy can be issued.
For further information, please contact the Police Department Records Division at (630) 671-4000.
