Request for Records
What is a public record?
As defined in Utah Code Ann. § 63G-2-103, public record means a record that is not private, controlled, or protected and is prepared, owned, received or retained by the governmental entity. Records requested must be able to be reproduced from the original record.
What are private, controlled and protected records?
A private record generally relates to an individual’s private interests and disclosure of such to the public would constitute a clearly unwarranted invasion of privacy. A record is considered “controlled” if it contains medical, psychiatric or psychological data about an individual. Protected records include, but are not limited to, open and ongoing investigations.
What types of police records may be available?
- Initial contact reports
- Traffic accident reports
Depending upon the status of the case, these records may not be available at the time of your request.
Requesting a Report
Present a completed GRAMA Request Form along with picture ID (current US Driver’s License, US ID Card, US Passport, US Visa, US Permanent Residence Card, US Employment Authorization Card, US Concealed Weapon Permit, or US Military ID) and applicable fees per report between 8:00 am and 5:00 pm Mon – Fri excluding holidays at the Tooele City Police Department.
Submit a copy of the requester’s current, approved picture ID along with a signed GRAMA request form listing each report requested. Mail request to Tooele City Police 50 N Garden Street Tooele, UT 84074.
Submit a copy of the requester’s current, approved picture ID along with a signed GRAMA request form listing each report requested. Email request to firstname.lastname@example.org
Submit a copy of the requester’s current, approved picture ID along with a signed GRAMA request form listing each report requested. Fax request to (435)882-7777.
What is the time limit for a response to a GRAMA request?
A governmental entity has ten (10) business days after receiving a written request to provide the record, deny the request, or notify the requester that it cannot immediately provide a response due to extraordinary circumstances. Extraordinary circumstances may require more processing time.
Who can initiate a GRAMA request?
Any person can make a public records request. However, public disclosure is regulated by several different statutes dependent upon the record. If you are the subject of the record (i.e., arrestee or victim), you may be entitled to information not available to the general public.
