The Records Unit of the Iowa State University Police Department is a support function for the Investigative and Threat Management Services.  We process all case paperwork generated by our officers which includes incident and accident reports. Under Iowa Open Records Law, records generated by ISU Police may be subject to release. The department processes and releases all records in a reasonable and timely manner.  We will notify the requester when the request has been completed. 

There is a $5 fee to obtain a copy of an accident, theft, or vandalism report.  Payment is accepted by either check or cash and must be made prior to receiving records. However, requests may also be submitted by email at Requests may also be made in person at 55 Armory Building on campus in Ames. 

If you have questions, please call the ISU Police Records Unit at 515-294-9239 between the hours of 7:30 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.
