By Colorado law, we are allowed three business days to respond to the written request. Generally, reports can be available sooner than the three days. Many reports, however, are not immediately available:
1) If a report is still under investigation, it cannot be released unless authorized by the investigating officer.
2) If there are any circumstances where the report would need to be redacted according to Colorado Open Records Act.
3) If the report is in storage.
4) If the report has been destroyed in accordance with the Colorado Archives Destruction Schedule.
The fee for a report is $2 to pull the report and $0.25 per page. If there are pictures associated with the report, the fee to include those is $1 per page, and we put four pictures on a page. We accept cash or checks only.
For traffic accident reports, if you are the driver and/or owner of the vehicle, there is no charge for the report. If you want pictures, however, the same fee listed above will apply.
The completed and signed request form can be emailed to PDRecords@windsorgov.com or faxed to 970-686-7478. Request for Release of Information
The Town of Windsor has Municipal Codes governing dogs, and those can be found in the Windsor Municipal Code Chapter 7. Because of the codes regarding dogs at large, our officers will pick up dogs found to be roaming without their owners. If the dog has an identification tag, the officer will attempt to contact the owner. If this is unsuccessful or the owner cannot pick up the dog immediately, the dog will be taken to Garden Valley Vet Clinic. Before the owner or responsible party can claim the dog at Garden Valley Vet, they will need to come to the Police Department with a photo ID to obtain the necessary paperwork. An owner of a missing dog can call the Police Department to report it missing and we will notify the officers to be on the look-out. If the dog is located by the owner, we ask that they also notify us, so that we will no longer look for the dog. The Town of Windsor does not have codes regarding cats at large, so officers will not pick them up.
