Obtaining Copies of Police Reports
Anyone wishing to obtain a copy of a police report should first call the Police Department's main number at 203-261-3665 and press 1 in order to check on availability. It will typically take 48 hours to process an incident report from the time of occurrence.
Report copies are available Monday through Friday, from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., at the Records Window inside the Trumbull Police Department lobby.
Accident reports may be picked up in five days, (not including weekends), after the accident. Accident Reports may also be accessed online from www.docview.us.com.
There is a $1.00 charge for the first page and a $.50 charge for each additional page on all reports.

All residents and business owners should be aware of the False Alarm Abatement ordinance (14-12) that is now in effect in Trumbull. The purpose of the ordinance is to reduce the number of false alarm activations that are reported to police, through the use of fines. Trumbull Police respond to more than 2,500 false alarms each year.
What alarm users need to know:
- All residential and business alarm systems must be registered with the police department, including all monitored and “audible only” systems. There is no cost to register. The registration form can be found here.
- Any change or update to the registration information needs to be submitted to the police department within sixty (60) days, using the same registration form.
- If you have already registered your alarm system with the police department and the information provided has not changed, there is no longer any need to submit a renewal form.
- There is no requirement for an annual registration or renewal.
- Failure to register an alarm system will result in a $100 fine for each year the system is not registered, plus a $50 fine for each false alarm activation.
- For registered systems, the THIRD false alarm activation, which causes a police response, will result in a $100 fine. Subsequent activations will result in additional fines on an increasing scale.
For additional information or questions regarding the False Alarm Abatement ordinance, contact the Records Division at (203) 261-3665, and press 1.
