Requesting Police Reports

The Farmington Police Department is required under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) to disclose certain records when a request is made in writing. However, some records may not be available for release because of certain exceptions, or they may have been destroyed in accordance with state statute. You may find more information on this at The Connecticut Freedom of Information website.
Accident reports are available on-line by selecting the following link. Accident Reports Now Available. When entering the accident report case number do not enter dashes, enter zeros in place of the dashes to create a 10 digit case number...for example:
For case number 16-122 enter 1600000122 or for case number 16-11111 enter 1600011111.

Violations of Town Codes
Town Codes govern a multitude of specific areas of legislation such as parking, blighted buildings, zoning, and alarms.
Citations may be issued for violations of these town codes. Rules for paying these citations are spelled out in the codes. If one feels that these citations were issued in error or that there are mitigating factors, Chapter 91 explains the citation hearing process whereby you would be able to appeal to a citation. An impartial hearing officer would then make a judgment as to your appeal.
Do you have an alarm system? Please keep in mind that false alarms are counted for each location in town, and for more than three in a one year period there will be a charge. This period runs from July 1 through June 30 annually. See Chapter 75 – Alarm Systems for more detail information.
