The Broomfield Police Records Unit is excited to announce it has launched a one-stop shop for all online requests. Residents, our media partners, lawyers, etc can now request both digital media and police records HERE. 

Once the records units has processed the request,  the requestor can pay for and download the record all at the same time. The communication with those requesting reports is greatly improved with this process as they will receive automatic status updates when the request is being processed, and when it's complete. This process also shortens the turnaround time on requests.
