Public Records Request Form
You may submit a Public Records Request using the web form below; our paper form returned in person, via fax or mail; or by sending us an email.
Public records requests are processed in the order they are received. When a records request is received, staff will review the request to ensure there are not exemptions that apply to the release of the requested record(s).
If no exemptions apply, we will contact you to let you know the amount of the fee and how to make your payment. Some requests involve higher costs depending on the staff time required for research or time involved to complete requests. The total fee is due before the records will be released.
When an exemption does apply, the exemption does not permit us to release all or a part of your requested record; we will let you know the details of the exemption. Per ORS 192.415, any person denied the right to inspect or receive a copy of any public record of Astoria Police Department may file suit with Clatsop County Circuit Court. The District Attorney for Clatsop County will review the public record to determine if it remains exempt from disclosure or if Astoria Police Department shall be compelled to disclose the record.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (503) 338-6433 with any questions about our process or fees.
