How do I obtain a copy of an accident, arrest or incident report?
Copies of records can be obtained in person at the Records Bureau of the Amherst Police Department during normal business hours. Business hours are Monday through Friday, 12:00 noon - 3:00 pm, starting July 1, 2007.

The Records Bureau is located in the front lobby of the Police Department at 111 Main St., Amherst.

Records requests can also be made via mail. To request a copy of a record through the mail, a Records Request Form should be filled-out and sent to the records office, along with payment by check (payable to Town of Amherst), and a self-addressed, stamped envelope. This will expedite your request.

Please note that there is a nominal charge for all copies of records.
