How to Request Records
Freedom of Information Act (FOIA)

The Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requires that the University Police Department make certain records available to the public. For more information on how to request records, please refer to request records online or by mail. 

Who Can Request Records?

Any person may request a copy of a record from the University Police Department. This includes any member of the public as well as those named within the records. All personally identifiable information (PII) is redacted, with a few exceptions. These exceptions include:

  • Motor Vehicle accident records – under law police are required to facilitate the exchange of information so the records are provided, without redaction, to any person listed on the record. 

  • If the person requesting a record is listed on the record we do not redact their information provided that the person is either personally picking up the record and displaying identification or they are requesting that the record be sent to the University email address assigned to their individual use. All other redactions are made as normal.

  • Provided records to other criminal justice agencies are un-redacted. This is typically how victims, defendants and others involved in a court case obtain un-redacted copies – through their attorney, the District Attorney’s office or the court.

  • Subpoena’s for records typically require un-redacted records.

  • In the case of an arrest, the name of the arrested person, their age at arrest and city and state of residence are never redacted unless they are a minor as defined in the New York State Criminal Procedure Law. 

Only completed records are released. There may be exceptional instances where we would not release a record such as releasing information that would compromise an ongoing investigation.
