If you call to inquire about the status of a police investigation or to obtain a copy of a police report, it would be helpful if you could provide the following information if known:
• Case or incident number
• Date the matter was filed with the Derry Police Department
Arrest Reports/Discovery: If you are calling to obtain a copy of your arrest report for a court date, there are two ways of obtaining a copy. You may either have your lawyer request the report or you may contact the prosecutor's office at police headquarters. If you are requesting a copy of your arrest report for yourself, you must do it in writing. The letter must be addressed to the Prosecutor (specify if the case is a Juvenile matter). In the letter, you need to provide the following information: your name and date of birth, the date of your arrest, the reason for your arrest, the court date that has been issued to you, and an address where you want the report mailed.
